At the end of 2015, Motorola has started upgrading the Moto G third generation in India in Brazil, then in the rest of the world. Now, the Moto G second generation is getting this firmware, but, for starters, the Indian users will have priority. As for the Note 5, the phablet was approved for Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta testing and the software is being pushed to this model, but someone has posted 13 images of his phone running on the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS.
Many Indian users who own a Moto G second generation mid-range device have reported that they’ve receive the Android 6.0 update over the air. The Marshmallow update soak test started on January 22 in Brazil and India and because no serious issues have been found during the testing, Motorola has decided to roll out the update to the Indian users. They will receive the software version 24.41.34.en.03 and the full notes can be found on the manufacturer’s official page. The update brings many new features such as Doze, Google Now on Tap, a revamped permissions system etc., but Motorola has added its own features such as Moto Assist. If you haven’t received this firmware yet, you can manually check for the update by going to Settings > About phone.
The Moto G (2014) arrived with Android 4.4 KitKat, but it was upgraded to Android 5.0 at the beginning of 2015 and Motorola preferred to skip the Android 5.1 update, in favor of Marshmallow 6.0.
In December, last year, Samsung has announced an official beta testing program for Marshmallow and included AT&T’s Galaxy S6 edge (SM-G925A) and Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920A), Verizon’s Galaxy S6 edge (SM-G925V), and Galaxy S6 edge+ (SM-G928V). The lucky Note 5 users who were accepted in the program have started receiving the official update, and hopefully, Samsung will seed the software to the rest of users from all over the world.
However, someone has showed a number of pictures of his Note 5 running on Android 6.0.1, the software that should come installed on the upcoming Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Anyway, in the pictures, the Android OS is overlaid by Samsung’s TouchWiz, which has now a white theme with light blue accents.
