Android 6.0 Marshmallow might reach existing Nexus devices soon according to carrier
Even though we’re still betting for a possible announcement of Google’s new Nexus smartphones on September 29, there’s always a minor level of certainty. The Nexus 6 was announced on October 15 last year, so it does make sense for it to happen somewhere around these days. Obviously another big question on the table is when do existing Nexus devices get the new version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and the answer is not far off.
Canadian carrier Telus has just released its software update release schedule and even though we’re not sure if intentionally, the list does include the Google Nexus 6 and Google Nexus 5. The list mentions that this devices will get Android M on October 5, which should just be a few days off from the possible announcement date. We would hold these rumors with a grain of salt though, given the fact that last year the Lollipop update for the Nexus 5 rolled out until November 12, which was about two weeks after the Nexus 6 began arriving in doorsteps, and not just announced like it the new models might next week.
At this point it’s hard to make assumptions, but we are in Nexus time, so stay tuned.
