Android 6.0 Marshmallow roll out date set for October 5

September 29th, 2015 at 6:50 AM
Android 6.0 Marshmallow Release Date Nexus

Google will announce a couple of new Nexus devices during a press event on Tuesday, with the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P being the stars of the show. The devices will be the first to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box when they ship to customers in the following weeks, but Google will also release the final version of Android 6.0 by that time.

The first devices to get Marshmallow up and running will be several old-gen Nexus handsets and tablets that are still capable of running the new release, and a new report sheds more light on Google’s Android 6.0 update plans for them.

Sources familiar with Google’s plans told Android Police that the final Marshmallow release will be available to users on October 5th, just as Canadian carrier Telus inadvertently revealed a few days ago.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be available to Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9 and Nexus Player. Additionally, Marshmallow code will also be pushed to AOSP on the same date.

Notably absent in the list above are the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10 which won’t receive Android 6.0. Instead, they’re going to stay on Lollipop forever, Android Police says,
