News | Android Devices Confirmed To Get 6.0 Marshmallow Update

It can be an extremely exciting, but also somewhat confusing time, for Android device owners whenever a new major version of the world’s most used mobile operating system is introduced. The introduction of new features, new capabilities, and enhanced security is enough to raise excitement levels, but then the questions and confusion starts. Will my device be getting the latest version? If so, when will the manufacturer and network start to roll the firmware out? Currently, Android users around the world are anxiously waiting for Android 6.0 Marshmallow to land on their devices, so head on over to our complete list of devices that have been confirmed to get the latest update.

We largely have to rely on the manufacturers for such information, and from what the major manufacturers have told us so far, we have compiled a list, which will hopefully grow in the coming days.


Sony Xperia

Sony has clearly taken the very generous route of integrating Android Marshmallow, as you can see from the fairly comprehensive list of Xperia hardware that will be receiving the upgrade. As part of the announcement, Sony also mentioned that it had a little something additional in the works for device owners, but neglected to elaborate on what just yet.

Motorola has become known as one of the few smartphone makers that shows extreme willingness in bringing the latest version of Android to as many of its devices as possible. Given the confirmed hardware list below, it shows no sign of slowing down on that commitment.

Samsung smartphones and tablets are amongst the most popular Android devices in existence globally. It’s therefore imperative that the Korean company works as efficiently as possible to ensure that as many users as possible get the latest Android firmware across as many devices as possible. Unsurprisingly, the announcement mentions more of the latest devices at hand, with the likes of the Galaxy S5 missing out, for now at least.

Galaxy Note 4 Duos
Galaxy Note Edge
Galaxy S6 Edge+

Taiwan-based HTC were on the ball in relation to Android Marshmallow by announcing that Marshmallow would be coming to an array of “One” devices practically before Google had even finished introducing the firmware. HTC has been careful to stress that a number of the devices listed are currently categorized as “may” be getting Marshmallow. So keep that in mind when getting excited.


HTC One M8
HTC One M8s
HTC One M9
HTC One M9+
HTC One E8
HTC One E9
HTC One E9+
HTC Butterfly 2
HTC Butterfly 3

LG is keeping things short and sweet. The following confirmed devices list for LG is based on the information provided by network T-Mobile.


LG G Stylo
LG G Pad 10.1
LG G Flex 2

Google Nexus

Nexus device owners will likely be happy with what they are reading. Historically speaking, Google likes to ensure that the last few years of Nexus devices still benefit from the latest version of its own platform, so that’s great news for those who own one of the devices listed below, but bad news if you have Nexus 10, an original Nexus 7, or a Nexus 4.


Nexus 6P
Nexus 5X
Nexus 6
Nexus 5
Nexus 7 (2nd gen)
Nexus 9
Nexus Player

A real mix of hardware and device types confirmed to be getting Android Marshmallow. If your device isn’t listed, then exercise some patience and hope that it will be confirmed soon.
