ZUK have confirmed that their Z1 which is currently running on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop will get the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow sometime in early 2016.



Unconfirmed phones that will almost certainly get Marshmallow:

  • Samsung: It’s all but guaranteed that the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ will get Marshmallow. It wouldn’t be surprising if 2014’s Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5 got the upgrade as well.
  • LG: The G4 is a solid bet to get the new software, as is the G3. That said, we won’t know for sure until LG makes an official announcement.


Lenovo Android Marshmallow update

Lenovo updated its upgrade matrix page in early November to reveal that the Lenovo K3 Note, Vibe S1, Vibe P1, A7000 and A7000 Plus are all set to receive Android Marshmallow. The company added that the update will not be coming to carrier-branded devices or those bought under contract. The information was subsequently removed from the page, however it still seems fairly certain that Lenovo’s Marshmallow plan is moving forward, albeit slowly.

The company is eyeing a release between June and September 2016, so some patience is required.


OnePlus Android Marshmallow update

OnePlus is probably a little preoccupied with its own OS, OxygenOS, to be concerned with Android Marshmallow. Don’t expect to see anything happening on the OnePlus front until 2016, when the OnePlus 2 seems the most likely to receive the update.


Asus Android Marshmallow update

Asus is a little slow to update its devices, although the Zenfone models are now on Android Lollipop. You can expect the same range, including the new Zenfone 2, to get Android Marshmallow in Asus’ own time.

ZTE is very lackluster at updating its phones, so don’t hold your breath for Android Marshmallow if you own one of its devices. The higher profile models, such as the ZTE Blade S6 and ZTE Axon, are the most likely to receive it, but even then there’s no telling when.

CyanogenMod 13

Cyanogen is hard at work on its Marshmallow ROM. While there’s no word on when we can expect to see the nightly or unstable test builds start to come out, any time between now and January seems like a good bet. Expect it to be at least March before any stable versions are available, with Nexus devices almost certain to be the first to receive them.

The advantages of the ROM over the official build of Marshmallow include more regular updates, additional features and support for many devices that are not set to receive the official update.
