According to the latest reports, Samsung has already started testing out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow for its Galaxy S5, S5 LTE-A, S5 Neo, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, Note 5, 4 and 5. In concordance with Sam Mobile, this is not the entire list of the devices that will be tested on Android 6.0 Marshmallow by Samsung.
It might take a while until some devices will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, some of them will receive it before the end of 2015, while others will need to wait a few more months after that.
Also, according to some new reports, HTC One M8 (Google Play Edition) is expected to be updated to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow until the end of October. If this will truly happen, it is because the device is a “Google Play Edition”, which is almost the same as a “Nexus” device. At the same time, the HTC One M9 Developer Edition will get updated to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow sometime in late November or early December 2015.
We remind you that HTC said earlier that it will take about 90 days to deliver the update on its latest smartphones. There are other HTC devices that will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow such as: HTC One M9, E9, E9+, ME, M8, E8, M8 Eye, Desire (826, 816, 820), Butterfly 3, since they’ve been released in the past 12-18 months. These devices will most likely receive the Android M update sometime at the beginning of 2016.
However, we remind you that depending on the carrier you are connected to, it might take longer until your device will finally be updated to the latest Android OS version.
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes with many new features such as Type-C USB support, the doze mode for extending the battery life, Now on Tap, Direct Share, a RAM manager, personalized Chrome tabs, Android Pay support and more.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow update will have around 500MB and once your device is ready to get updated to it, you will be notified on the home screen of the device. You can also manually check if there are new updates for your Android device by going to the device’s Settings->About Device->Check for Software Update.
