Here Are All The Phones Getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Google finally announced the successor to Lollipop update in late September and it sounds even tastier.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow has been released and it will already have started arriving to a number of Nexus devices (which get updates directly from Google). The rest of the non-Nexus devices will have to wait for some time for the third-party manufacturers to enjoy the update. However, it is certainly something to look forward to!

There are many updated features. Along with fine-tuned app permissions with less of a need to cater to frequent request permissions, Google Now has new predictive powers. There are new features to improve battery life like App standby and there is fingerprint scan availability! (Who doesn’t want that?) There are plenty of other small improvements like improved copy, cut paste and a darker theme. You will discover more as you go, let’s not spoil the fun for you.

Following is the list of phones set to receive 6.0 Marshmallow update:

Google

  • Nexus 5
  • Nexus 6
  • Nexus 7 (2013)
  • Nexus 9
  • Nexus Player

These are the first devices to get the update, which is on its way. However, Google sends the update out in stages, so it might be several days or even a week or two before Marshmallow arrives on them.

  • Galaxy Note 4
  • Galaxy Note 5
  • Galaxy Note Edge
  • Galaxy S5
  • Galaxy S6

  • The last line of the article says “According to a list uploaded by T-mobile, these LG devices are preparing to deliver a software “4
    It seems the list represents T Mobile phones only.

  • Glad to know my Desire 816 will also get the update, I thought I would be left over as HTC is not known for their OS updates. So I can keep this one for another 6 months or more ?. This post made my day.
