Android Marshmallow has been confirmed for these devices
Are you excited about Android Marshmallow? We’ve leaked wallpapers and some cool features of Android’s sweetest treat to date, but you may still be wondering if your device will receive Google’s latest update. Well, have no fear: one source has gathered the information for you so that you need not worry about that.
The source in question is MyDrivers, and the site has compiled a list of sources related to Android manufacturers who are already taking steps to announce which of their devices will see Android Marshmallow and which devices will not. Of these manufacturers, of course, a few are significant. We’ve already covered Motorola’s announcement, so we won’t cover its devices. We will focus on Samsung and LG, among others. As for Google, Nexus 5, 6, 7, 9, and Player owners are already seeing the latest rolled out via a firmware update this week.
Android Marshmallow and Samsung
As the largest Android manufacturer and the darling of the Android world, Samsung has already started to declare which of its devices will move up to Android Marshmallow. This year’s devices (the Galaxy Note5, Galaxy S6, S6 edge, and S6 edge+) will all see Marshmallow, but the Galaxy Note 4 (2014), Galaxy S5 (2014), Galaxy Alpha (2014), Galaxy A8, and Galaxy A7, along with the Galaxy Note Edge (2014) will all see Android Marshmallow. As for the Galaxy Note Edge, the source below cites the device but doesn’t provide it in the update-eligible chart – so we can’t confirm this for sure just yet. It looks as though the Galaxy A5, A3, and the Galaxy E series may not get Android Marshmallow.
Android Marshmallow and LG
Next to Samsung in the Android world stands LG. As Samsung’s fellow Korean rival, LG has a stake in Marshmallow, but only has three devices as of now that will receive the new update.The LG G3, LG G4 (2015), and the G Flex 2 (early 2015) will all receive Android Marshmallow. The first-generation G Flex, G2, and G2 Pro look as though they’ll miss Marshmallow.
Android Marshmallow and HTC
HTC only has two flagship devices that will receive the new update, those being the HTC One M8 and One M9. The M9 Plus will receive the update of course, but that’s because it is one of the 2015 devices that is soon to be announced.
Android Marshmallow and Sony
Verizon just announced recently that the rumored Xperia Z4v will not make its way into the Verizon lineup, but Sony has not forgotten about Xperia Z3v owners who purchased the first device on the carrier’s network from Sony in a long time. Apart from the Xperia Z3v, there’s the Xperia Z3 in Japan and the Xperia Z3 Compact, along with the Xperia Z Ultra (Google Play Edition), but some of its devices getting updated are mid-range devices. The Xperia Z1, however, the first of the line, will not receive Android Marshmallow.
There are other manufacturers looking to upgrade their devices, and you can take a look at them at the source link below. Are you getting Android Marshmallow? Are you not? Excited or disappointed? Let your voice be heard in the comments below.
