First Samsung devices to get Android Marshmallow tipped, rolling out by early 2016

Samsung is still hard at work rolling out the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update to its mobile devices still, but the plans for the next edition Android 6.0 Marshmallow are already seeping through as well. Google's Marshmallow version brings with it a bunch of improvements, predominantly under the hood of Android, like app permissions, memory usage tracking, power saving, auto backup, and more, so it's worth knowing if Samsung has signed up your model among the first to get it.
A tipster has claimed the initial batch of Samsung's Android gear that will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and it includes some of the best and the brightest in the stable, alongside some humbler, but popular devices, check it out below. We can't vouch for the credibility of the source's insiders, but it looks like a pretty logical list, and those are said to receive Marshmallow by early 2016, or about a trimester after Google releases the source code to manufacturers.

Let's see how long it takes the carrier's to approve... It didn't take T-Mobile long to get 5.1.1 on the s6. Let's hope the same is done with 6.0...

Let's hope they don't keep the trend of doing crappy updates to the Note 4... 5.0 or 5.1 come and pick your poison of choice... And don't forget the theme store Sigh.

The S5 is obsolete already? Apple still supports their iPhone 4S.

They just offer basic support like Samsung and Google does, as all there software get updated, I..e. Apple updates there apps with full OS updates, I..e like adding Apple, music and so on, they do not add the new things, they also update the OS to make the phone crap so you upgrade

Glad to be on Sprint. Say what you want about data speeds (for me they're fine and I live and work in a strong LTE/Spark area) but Sprint and T-Mobile are usually the best carriers in terms of updates (plus they don't lock bootloaders either).
