T-Mobile posts list of devices that will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates
Owners of select Nexus devices can expect to receive over the air Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates starting today, but those who have other Android devices are not that lucky. However, Marshmallow is definitely coming soon to various smartphones and tablets.

While HTC and Motorola already revealed lists of devices that will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow (see here and here), we're still waiting for official confirmations from other manufacturers. Thankfully, today T-Mobile went ahead and posted a list of phones and tablets that will, at some point, be updated to Google's newest version of Android. Check out the list below, in alphabetical order:

  • HTC One M8
  • HTC One M9
  • LG G3
  • LG G4
  • LG G Stylo
  • Google Nexus 5
  • Google Nexus 6
  • Google Nexus 7
  • Google Nexus 9
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4
  • Samsung Galaxy Note5
  • Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
  • Samsung Galaxy S5
  • Samsung Galaxy S6
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 edge
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S2
T-Mobile mentions that there are three key stages for the update: Manufacturer Development, T-Mobile Testing, and Completed. At the moment, only Nexus devices are in the Completed stage, while all other devices are still in the Manufacturer Development stage. You can click on any device to check its status over at T-Mobile's website (source link included below).

What do you think about the list above? Are there other devices that you'd wish to see included on it?

Still love my Xperia Z3 though. Even if all the other Z3 owners have had Android 5.1.1 for months while we wait yet again for the update to arrive. I will never buy another non Nexus Android phone ever again. The update cycle is TERRIBLE.

Iphone and windows give older phones more updates, well only the ones that arrive with windows 8, I feel android should at least do 3 years worth of updates, remove top features if you have to

That's what's happening with the Nexus 4, 10 and 7 (2012) They are still being updated, but getting no new features, only security/bug fixes New factory images are uploaded today for the Nexus 4, 10 and 7 (2012) as well Unfortunately it seems none of the other Android OEMs doing that yet

Don't think t-mobile ever sold the 10 and 7 2012, so thats why it isn't up there. But the 10 is an old dual core (Cause the 9 is dual core, just a much stronger processor) so it makes sense why it won't receive marshmallow. And if all of those devices do, it might now be the funnest update, you'll see lag, especially on the 10

But I thought Samsung was the bestest ever. If you're buying a non-nexus phone you shouldn't expect prompt updates, or any updates. It is a conflict of interest for the EOMs to provide updated software when they can just sell you a new device with updated software.

Disappointing. Android is starting to suck when it comes to updating older phones.

iPhone does the same thing. I have an iPhone 6 Plus on 9.0.2, so many lags, crashes and glitches.

No M for ATT G2 makes me very worried for my Sprint G2. The international model might get M, but I doubt carriers will bother.

Not surprised. I'm typing this on my Samsung TabPRO 8.4 I bought a year and a half ago at launch for $400, it's stuck on 4.4.2, lots of drive left yet slow, slow notification blind, kills processes in ram even with only a few apps in the tray, and no lollipop in sight, let alone marshmallow. Probably for the better since lollipop blew out all my other devices. I don't know why I keep reading about Android. It's super great in many ways but ultimately frustrating, maybe because we're in the early years of its development, tbh, like early cars or early radios, just doing what it can across a zillion stupid iterations developed by a zillion corporations that go, "Oh you spent $900 on our phone, thanks, now when you've owned it for two years, fu, customer, we are willing to destroy your trust in our product for the purpose of not hiring a fee extra people to keep your phone you gave us $900 for in tip top shape." We need a new OS company, apparently, unless I'm selling MS and Blackberry short, or cyremenoppogenmod.

All skin droids when you buy don't expect your phones to be updated plain and simple. Here's a simple way to update your skin droid phones buy a newer skin droid phone. This is why I'll never buy a none nexus device again. Just a waste of money. Example Samsung note series, lg g series, htc one series and etc are complete trash. Lag lag lag lag, no updates, not worth it
