Nexus, HTC, Motorola and LG Devices With Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update

3

Today is the release date of one of the most awaited mobile operating systems: the Android Marshmallow.

The first devices that come with the Android M installed are Google’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. However, Google has confirmed the devices that will receive this new operating system, as follows: Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9, Nexus 5 (2013) and Nexus 6. With other words, if you own an Asus Nexus 7 (2012) or a Nexus 4 device, you will not receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

In the meantime, Motorola and HTC also listed some of their devices that will receive the new operating system. According to ZDNet, almost all the smartphones that Motorola has released in 2014 and 2015 will receive the new Android OS. The following Motorola devices will most likely receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS are: Droid Turbo, Moto Maxx (2014), Moto X Pure Edition (2nd and 3rd generation), Moto X, Moto X Play, Moto Turbo (2014) and Moto G (2nd and 3rd generation).

HTC also announced the first devices that will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. It seems that the HTC One M9, HTC One M9+, One M9, One E9, One E9+, One E8, One Me, Desire 816, Desire 820 and Desire 826 will get the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update until the end of 2015.

Until now LG hasn’t made an official announcement regarding the devices that will be updated to Marshmallow. It is good to know that GforGames reported a few days ago that LG G3 and G4 will most likely be updated to Marshmallow, because they’ve spotted in the LG Support page for LG G3 and G4 a drop down menu option showing the new OS.
