It’s like a race between companies to provide latest updates to their users to attract them. Here is the list of companies which will provide Android M update to its selected devices.
Nexus Android Marshmallow update
Google has revealed that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update will delivered OTA to the
- Nexus 5
- Nexus 6
- Nexus 7 (2013)
- Nexus 9
- Nexus Player
on the week beginning Monday, October 5. But the devices
- Nexus 4
- Nexus 7 (2012)
- Nexus 10
are not scheduled to receive this update.
HTC Android Marshmallow update
According to the ever-reliable @LlabTooFer, who has an excellent track record when it comes to HTC leaks, this is the list of handsets that are to receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HTC’s latest Sense 7 user interface:
- One M9
- One M9+
- HTC One E9
- HTC One E9+
- HTC One M8
- HTC One M8s
- HTC One M8 EYE
- HTC One E8
- HTC Desire EYE
- HTC Desire 816
- HTC Desire 820
- HTC Desire 826
- HTC Butterfly 2
- HTC Butterfly 3
Bear in mind, however, that @LlabTooFer says that “this list is preliminary,” and HTC’s update plans could change during the Marshmallow development process. It’s thought that devices that don’t have a lot of internal storage — such as the Desire 816 — could be removed from this list.
Samsung Android Marshmallow update
Samsung has not yet commented on its update schedule, but that hasn’t stopped some websites from claiming they have an ‘official’ list of Samsung devices due to be updated to Android Marshmallow by the end of the year. YouMobile recently added the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ to its list, and while we don’t put much stock in the information, most of the devices listed are pretty safe bets. Check out the list below:
- Galaxy S6
- Galaxy S6 Edge
- Galaxy Note 4
- Galaxy Note Edge
- Galaxy Note 5
- Galaxy S6 Edge+
- Galaxy S6 Duos
- Galaxy Note 4 Duos
- Galaxy Alpha
- Galaxy Tab A
The Samsung flagships released this year will almost certainly get Android Marshmallow, either before the end of the year or in early 2016. We’ve reached out for more details on the Android Marshmallow update for Samsung Galaxy devices and will fill you in on anything we hear.
LG Android Marshmallow update
Although there is no official word on the LG Android Marshmallow update, the LG G4 and the LG G3 will certainly receive Android Marshmallow. We’ve sent LG a request for comment regarding its update plans. We will give you details when we get a response.
On a side note, a Greek website uncovered a comment on LG’s Greek Facebook page stating there are no plans for Android 5.1 for the G3, which possibly indicates that the device will jump straight to Android Marshmallow instead.
Sony Android Marshmallow update
Sony has remained silent about its update schedule, but the Xperia Z4, Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3+ and Xperia Z4 tablet will certainly receive the update to Android Marshmallow. Considering the Android M preview was already made available for select Xperia devices, we’ll assume the Sony Android Marshmallow update is coming along nicely too.
Motorola Android Marshmallow update
Motorola’s smartphones usually get updates quickly, so the
- Moto X (Pure Edition)
- Moto X Play
- Moto X (2014)
should be some of the first smartphones getting the Motorola Android Marshmallow update. But models such as the
- Moto G (2015)
- Moto G (2014)
- New Moto E
are also likely to get it relatively quickly.
Huawei Android Marshmallow update
Huawei might see Android Marshmallow as something sinister – that’s because it must first roll out Android Lollipop to its latest smartphones. Only after that can we consider the Huawei Android Marshmallow update as something to look forward to. Huawei has said that the P8 will be the first device to get the Android M update, but has not given us a date for when this will occur.
