The final version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be released in the coming months and we expect the newest Nexus devices will be the first ones to receive it. Meanwhile, Android device makers will take their time updating to Google’s latest and best mobile operating system, and a new report indicates that Samsung will deliver Android 6.0 builds for its flagship Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 handsets only early next year.

DON’T MISS: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review

Samsung has yet to announce which smartphones and tablets will be the first to receive Android Marshmallow, though its 2015 flagships are obviously going to be included in the first round of updates.

Tech blog YouMobile says an insider revealed what the first devices to get the new Android 6.0 update will be. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Duos and Galaxy S6 Edge are all on that list. Older gadgets including the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note 4 Duos, Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Tab A are also mentioned.

Not too long ago, Samsung released an infographic (see it below) that highlights the main Android Marshmallow features, promoting the Galaxy S6 edge in the process.
