Complete list of phones to get Android 6 Marshmallow leaks, includes Samsung, Sony, and LG

Complete list of phones to get Android 6 Marshmallow leaks, includes Samsung, Sony, and LG
HTC was quick to announce its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update plans first, and some info already appeared on LG and Motorola plans for the inevitable rollout, but now we have the motherload of leaks regarding which exact phones from various prime Android makers will be getting the s'mores.

The list has been circulating in the Chinese blogosphere for a while, and includes the who is who in the mobile industry, featuring Samsung, Sony, Xiaomi, Huawei and others. Obviously, virtually all of their high-end handsets will be receiving Android 6.0 first, with others to follow. 

The second column shows which manufacturer devices will be getting the sweet Marshmallow in a second batch of updates, or which ones are still on the ropes. Interestingly enough, the new Xperia Z5 trio isn't listed here, though Sony already mentioned that it will be in line for the Marshmallow update, so no worries for now. As for when exactly will these phones be updated to Android 6.0 after Google releases the source code this month, that is anyone's guess, but if history is any indication, the first over-the-air prompts should be hitting some unlocked or Google Play editions before year's end.

I love the way lg update their phones. Skiping the minor updates to focus on major update. Like g2: 4.2 - 4.4.2 - 5.0.1- 6.0

Both are over two years old so you shouldn't be surprised by this. Note 3 maybe at some point if Samsung are feeling generous, no chance of the Galaxy S4 receiving marshmallow.

Serious, the S4? It's a 2 year old device. It's simply to old. The Note 3 is also 2 years old. Why put new software on a device that can't take advantage of what is being offered in the firmware? Ok, Google isn't going to do like Apple and strip out stuff that won't work on older devices, just so they share the same version number. It is nearly impossible to create multiple firmware for phones when you have so many Android OEM, with so many configurations. Android is just liek Windows. Its a single unified package designed to be installed on any product that qualifies. Even though I am positive the S4/Note can both use the most recent Android update, it simply isn't feasible for OEM's to support a 2 year old device that many people may not even be using anymore. I am betting less than 10% of Android users still have a Note 3/S4. I didnt say no one had it, I simply said the number of present users is likely to small to make it worthwhile.

You know that S4 is still selling well. People still choosing S4 for the price and good medium specs translated in confortable day to day usage.

Yes, it's still a good phone, but when you buy a phone that is almost 3 years old you can't really expect many future updates.

The Note 3 should be able to run marshmallow with no problems, it has plenty of memory and a fast processor.

LG G2 on and Samsung Galaxy S4 off? S4 was the large scaling sold and most popular Galaxy one. Anyhow they stop S4 on 5.0.1.

Samsung provide 2 mayor updates for flagships

I think we all know how Android OEM's operate by now. You can't even trust Motorola. If you want updates get a Nexus or iPhone.

Sadly the Nexus devices this year are skippable

That's exactly what I thought! Seriously Samsung? The E series is there and no Note 3! The original Note was supported for so long by Samsung and now they aren't going to support a Note from just 2 generations ago? Man it breaks my heart

If Note 3 gets no marshmallow, it will be my last Samsung purchase. It may be anyway, since the Note 5 has no IR blaster or SD card...unless they bring them back the Note 6 (or whatever). Maybe I'll go with an LG or Nexus phone.

If the Galaxy S5 is getting it, I think the Note 3 would as well, considering they have similar specs. I think this list is incomplete.

Nice, my zenfone 2 is listed there.

I know right? The S3, understandable to an extent, but the S4 questionable.

I don't think you need a leak for this. It is safe to assume any device released in Q3 of last year to now will get the most recent version of Android. You don't need a leak for that. Well, at leats for phones released in the USA.
