OnePlus One, OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X will all be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow

OnePlus today announced that it's going to update all its smartphones to Android 6.0 Marshmallow - more exactly, all three of them (pictured above): OnePlus One, OnePlus 2, and OnePlus X.

While the company notes that it "can't promise specific dates yet", it's confident that it will manage to update the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 to Marshmallow sometime in the first quarter of 2016 (January - March). As for the OnePlus X, which is the newest among the three devices, OnePlus is already "working hard to bring Marshmallow" to it "as soon as possible" - this might mean that the update could be ready to roll out before the end of the year, though that's just our guess.

Interestingly, OnePlus says that what will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow on the OnePlus One is Cyanogen OS, not OxygenOS, since the latter "isn’t what the product officially ships with" (despite being OnePlus' own OS).

Do you own have of OnePlus' three handsets? Which one do you think will get to taste Marshmallow first?

No rush for any OS upgrade, rather they squash as much bugs as they can find during the time than experience them. I'm still holding back my Surface Pro 2 from Windows 10 until the Redstone update. If so in a hurry, switch to the nightly/insider updates and avoid crying about bugs...

Better support than the top tier Android OEMs.

Nope...Top tier OEMs will release 6.0 before end of this year or early next year...not in first quater of next year. I'd call oneplus's upgrade support better only if, they continue to upgrade phones after 2 years of release.

There is a difference between stating they will release an update and it actually coming, in my experience with Nexus and Acer you can never take their word for the launch date, and its not just Android, I waited months beyond the forecasted date for the Denim update for my Lumia 1020 and they've stated Windows 10 is coming in the 4th quarter but I doubt they will hit that mark. It's understandable for the top teir OEM's as they have way more phones to deal with, that's one benefit for One Plus, they only have an handful of phones to update.

To be fair top tier Android OEM (Samsung, LG, HTC, etc) have more work do to before release an Android update than what Oneplus or Motorola needs to.

Even if OnePlus doesn't release an update, I believe Cyanogen will release an update...they're still supporting ancient devices like the first Samsung Galaxy S with latest Android versions (bit.ly/1HHPYJ2); that's the beauty of being both carrier and manufacturer independent.

Does OPO and OPPO have a similar timeline on updating their smartphones? Find 7/7a, R5/5s and R7 series are also getting M next year in the form of their AOSP ROM, Project Spectrum.

The current Oxygen OS 2.1.2 (Android 5.1.1) is pretty stable and performing well. No rush for Mr. Marshmallow to be rushed, although it'll be nice to have it onboard after playing around with it on my Nexus 5.
