List of Devices to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update

android mashmallow update

You might be in the confusion that when will my phone get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update? Well, there’s no simple answer to that. As update to your device is pushed out by manufacturer and not by Google directly (although, it’s the opposite in case of Nexus and Android One devices).

The first devices that are in line to get the Marshmallow update are always the Nexus devices! Although some manufacturers are very fast in delivering updates to their phones even before Google does to their Nexus lineup, take the case of LG when they updated their flagships even before Nexus 5 got the update.

Now, let’s look at the list of devices sorted by the list of manufacturers, which are announced to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.

Nexus Android Marshmallow Update

Google’s Nexus devices are the first ones to get Marshmallow update, Google has already said that Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update will be starting this week. The devices that’ll get the OTA starting October 5 are :

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

Although these devices will be getting the Marshmallow OTA update, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 7 (2012) are not scheduled for the update right now. And Google’s new kids Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will be launching with Marshmallow.

Motorola Android Marshmallow Update

Motorola has shown everyone already on how aggressive they are on pushing update to their phones, which usually comes in par with Nexus updates. Motorola has already announced the list of Motorola phones to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, although they haven’t provided the exact dates. Take a look :

  • 2015 Moto X Pure Edition (3rd gen)
  • 2015 Moto X Style (3rd gen)
  • 2015 Moto X Play
  • 2015 Moto G (3rd gen)
  • 2014 Moto X Pure Edition in the US (2nd gen)
  • 2014 Moto X in Latin America, Europe and Asia (2nd gen)
  • 2014 Moto G and Moto G with 4G LTE2 (2nd gen)
  • DROID Turbo
  • 2014 Moto MAXX
  • 2014 Moto Turbo

As you can find from the above list, Motorola haven’t listed affordable their Moto E series of phones (both 1st gen & 2nd gen are not included), and also the older generations of Moto G (1st gen) and Moto X (1st gen). It is understandable that these phones are now two generations behind, and might be slower for an update, but the Moto E 2nd gen is a new phone and it’s still not in the list of Motorola phones to be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Samsung Android Marshmallow update

There are no official confirmation from Samsung on when or which of their devices will be updated, but we can make up a list of Samsung devices that will be updated soon. Samsung has been bringing updates timely, although to their flagships while leaving behind other middle range phones. Here’s the list of Samsung phones that will be the first to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update :

  • Galaxy Note 5
  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Galaxy S6 Edge+
  • Galaxy S6 Duos
  • Galaxy Note 4
  • Galaxy Note Edge
  • Galaxy Note 4 Duos
  • Galaxy S5
  • Galaxy Alpha
  • Galaxy Tab A
  • Galaxy Tab S
  • Galaxy Tab S2
  • Galaxy A7
  • Galaxy A5

That’s the list of devices that’ll be getting Samsung Android 6.0 Update soon. Although there may be changes in the list or more devices might be added to the list (we’ll be updating the list further when Samsung makes and official announcement on this). Samsung middle and low end phone users might be disappointed looking at this list, because Samsung is infamous for forgetting about the low end and middle range devices and if you’re still disappointed about not receiving timely updates, it’s time you think about a new phone from a brand like Motorola or OnePlus.

Edit : Samsung’s Marshmallow update road map have been leaked, so we have a more clear view on when Marshamallow update will reach Sammy phones. Take a look at the leaked document below.
