Complete list of phones to get Android 6 Marshmallow leaks, includes Samsung, Sony, and LG
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 05, 2015, 9:15 AM
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
