Moto X Pure, Moto G, Moto E, Moto X Style, Droid Turbo 2 and BlackBerry Priv, In Line To Be Upgraded To Android 6.0 Or 6.0.1 Marshmallow
Currently, Motorola is upgrading its devices to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, and in the Q1 of 2016 will be released the Android 6.0.1 update. The Priv is BlackBerry’s first Android smartphone that came pre-loaded with 5.1.1 Lollipop and soon it will receive Marshmallow as well.
Android 6.0 was firstly tested on the Moto X Pure Edition device in November, but now, all American users who bought this model through Verizon, Sprint and US Cellular are enjoying the new features of the latest OS. Outside the US, this phone is known as Moto X Style and the update rolled out first for the Brazilian, Indian and European users.
The Moto X (2014) is another flagship that received the Android 6.0, but only in countries such as Canada, Brazil, India and the UK and according to Android Central, it isn’t sure if the update will be available for the first generation Moto X model.
The Moto X Play is the smaller phablet that came alongside the Moto X Pure Edition and soon, it will run on Android 6.0. Another Motorola device that will get this update is the Droid Maxx 2, which is available in the US through Verizon.
The next device we’ll talk about is the Droid Turbo 2, which is also sold by Verizon and which is expected to be updated to Android M soon. The Verizon employees already receive this update on their Droid Turbo 2 Employee Edition smartphones. Likewise the Moto X Pure Edition, the Droid Turbo 2 has an international version which is called Moto X Force, but it’s not known when it will receive Android 6.0.
Also, the Moto G third generation handset was updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but the software isn’t available yet for the Moto G (2014) and Moto G 4G LTE (2014) editions. Lastly, the Android 6.0 update will arrive soon to the Moto E (2015), but we have no confirmation if the Moto E (2014) will be upgraded as well.
BlackBerry has released its first Android smartphone with 5.1.1 Lollipop and the users who bought it from American carriers such as Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint will soon receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow, while AT&T already rolled out this update.
