Which phones will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow?

Ever since Google started seeding Android 6.0 Marshmallow to Nexus devices early this month, almost everyone has been asking: When will my phone get it? Google’s latest mobile OS update comes with new features like Doze, and a host of bug fixes and performance upgrades.


It will take some time before our phones start getting Marshmallow. As the process goes, phone manufacturers take time preparing and testing the OS on various devices. Most need to make changes based on their ROM like Samsung’s TouchWiz. So, in the meantime, here’s a list of devices that will get Google’s latest Android iterations. Take note that the lists are not final. It could change, depending on each manufacturer. If you’re phone is not on the list, there’s a chance you still might get it.

Nexus and Android One

Let’s start with Google’s own devices. Marshmallow started seeding to Nexus 5, 6, 7 and 9 on October 5. If you haven’t gotten it yet, you could download the factory images and try your luck with a manual install. The newest Nexus will come with Marshmallow out of the box.

Android One devices will also start getting Marshmallow soon. The Cherry Mobile One G1, Cherry Mobile One, MyPhone Uno could soon be the first local devices to get it.
