Android 6 Marshmallow update: when you'll get it and key features

The Android 6.0 update is out


Moto X

Motorola is updating the Moto X Style, Moto X Play, Moto X Force, Moto G 2015, Moto G 2014, Moto E (2nd gen), Moto X 2014, Moto X Pure Edition (2015), Droid Turbo 2, Droid Maxx 2 and Nexus 6.

Marshmallow will also come to the 2014 version of the Moto X Pure Edition, the 2014 Moto G and Moto G with 4G LTE, the Moto MAXX, Moto Turbo, and Droid Turbo.


Huawei Mate 8

The Huawei P9 and Huawei P9 Plus have both landed with Android Marshmallow. The company has also confirmed that in China the Huawei P8, Huawei P8 Max, Mate S, Ascend Mate 7, P8 Youth Edition, G7, G7 Plus, X2, 4X and Play 4C will be getting Android 6.0 at some point, though it's uncertain whether they'll all get updated to it elsewhere in the world.


OnePlus One

The OnePlus One has received its own version of Android 6 Marshmallow in the form of Cyanogen OS 13, while the OnePlus 2 is also getting it as part of an OxygenOS 3.0.2 software update. The OnePlus 3 launched with Android Marshmallow software already on board.

It was originally thought the OnePlus X will also be receiving the Android 6 upgrade, but the company hasn't given an update on when it'll arrive. It has recently updated its phone to OxygenOS 2.2.2, but that didn't involve any Marshmallow features.

The OnePlus Twitter account has clarified it will be launching for the OnePlus X eventually though, so it won't just skip to Android N software.


BlackBerry Priv

The brand new BlackBerry DTEK50 is already running Marshmallow, while the BlackBerry Priv was the first phone from the Canadian manufacturer to feature Android software. The Priv has now been treated to the Marshmallowy goodness too.


Zenfone 2

Asus is another company which often isn't particularly speedy with its updates. It has now given updates to the ZenFone 2, ZenFone 2 Deluxe, ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition and the ZenFone 2 Laser. Now the ZenFone Selfie and ZenFone Zoom are getting the update too.

Asus has confirmed to TechRadar the PadFone S and ZenFone Max are all set to get the update to Android 6 and we're hopeful it will launch very soon.


Honor 6

Honor has revealed its update schedule for Marshmallow and it's not going to be long now. The Honor 7 is already getting the update, while Honor 6 users in India are also receiving it. Honor has released the update for Honor 5X, but it's just in the US for now.

It's expected the Honor 6 Plus and Honor 4X will get the update before long, but right now it's not certain.


Blade S6

ZTE doesn't always bother to update its phones, so if you have one you may have to make do without Android Marshmallow. The ZTE Axon Pro is getting the Marshmallow update, but that seems to be it.


Nvidia Shield

The Nvidia Shield Tablet ATV has already received the Android 6 Marshmallow update. The Shield Tablet K1 and the original Shield tablet have also started getting it.

Other manufacturers

Nextbit currently has one phone, the Nextbit Robin, and while it launched in February with Android Lollipop it has now been updated to Android Marshmallow.
