Moto G 2nd Edition, Moto X Pure and Nexus 6 To Receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update

1

Google has released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow on a good amount of Nexus devices, however, it seems that the Nexus 6 devices that are connected to T-Mobile devices haven’t received the OTA update yet. However, this is about to change, as T-Mobile announced that the OTA update for Nexus 6 and Moto G 2nd generation will be released soon.

The final phase of the Android M soak test for Moto G 2nd edition is about to end and it will be soon released for the public, this update had over 460MB and it updated the device from Android 5.0.2 Lollipop to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Des Smith, product manager at T-Mobile, has written on his twitter account that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow version MRA58X will be released for the Nexus 6 device after it will get approved. Rumors say that the Android M update for T-Mobile’s Nexus 6 will also support LTE Band 12 and Wi-Fi calling.

T-Mobile’s Moto X Pure Edition (2015) is another device that will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update soon. The device was already confirmed that will be updated to Android Marshmallow in Q1 2016, but according to some new rumors, the device will actually be updated to the latest Android OS this month. However, we should take this news with a bit of salt, as it wasn’t confirmed by anyone from Motorola.

As expected, the Moto X Pure Edition (2015) will need to pass a soak test before it will be officially released. This means that it will take some time until the device will be officially updated to the Android M, and since there is only 1 week left until the end of November, there are very low chances that this device will be updated to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow until then.
