Motorola is one of Google’s OEMs and when Marshmallow was released, some of the Moto devices started being upgraded in December 2015, in countries such as India and Brazil. Now, the Moto X Play and X Style, X 2014, G 2015, G 2014, G 2014 LTE and E 2015 have been confirmed to get the latest Android firmware in certain regions. However, the US owners of the Moto E 2015 won’t get Marshmallow anytime soon, but this update will arrive on the Snapdragon 410 powered versions from Europe, Canada, Latin America and Asia – except for China.
If you own a Moto X 2013, Moto G 2013 or Moto G 2013 LTE, unfortunately, these models are not eligible to receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow. However, according to Tech Radar, this update will come on Moto MAXX, Droid Turbo and Moto Turbo, but Motorola hasn’t revealed the exact timing for rollouts. On the official Motorola Blog we don’t have relevant information about the devices that are waiting to be upgraded, as the latest entry dates in October 2015, which states “look for more news on upgrades for specific devices”.
The Moto X Style and Moto X (2014) have been upgraded in many regions, and currently, there are rumors suggesting that soon, the second generation Moto G will get Marshmallow. As for the Moto G 2015, Lawyer Herald says that mobile carriers AT&T and Sprint will roll out Android 6.0.1 for it by the end of this month.
It isn’t clear when all major carriers (Verizon, US Cellular, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile) will upgrade as many Motorola phones as possible, but if you’re a subscriber and want to manually check for upgrades, then head to your device’s Settings menu and tap on System Update. Soon, 6.0.1 Marshmallow will be pushed out to the devices that have been upgraded to 6.0 Marshmallow, even if Motorola will not announce anything.
