This could be a preliminary list of Samsung devices getting Android Marshmallow

Wondering which Samsung smartphones and tablets will be receiving the Android 6.0 – aka Marshmallow – update? The folks over at SlashGear seem to have an answer from the Korean manufacturer itself and have published a list of devices that should be making the jump to Marshmallow. Naturally, the list has all the flagship smartphones from the last year and a half, including the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, and the Galaxy Note 4.

The Galaxy S5 isn’t part of the list, but it will most likely make the cut considering all Samsung flagships have gotten at least two major Android upgrades. Also, Android 6.0 doesn’t really have any feature that would be restricted by the S5′s hardware, so we see no reason why the Korean manufacturer wouldn’t bring the new version of the OS to its 2014 Galaxy S flagship.

Anyway, here’s the list of devices eligible for Marshmallow according to SlashGear:

  • Galaxy Note 5
  • Galaxy S6 Edge+
  • Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 Duos
  • Galaxy Note 4
  • Galaxy Note 4 Duos
  • Galaxy Note Edge
  • Galaxy Tab A
  • Galaxy Alpha

Keep in mind that this list should by no means be final, and Samsung will likely make changes to its plans in the future. Most importantly, we should see a couple of mid-range and even budget smartphones getting Android 6.0, so don’t take this information as the final word just yet.

Update: We should point out that there are currently no Marshmallow firmware under development yet, and the list is of very recent devices. We will be sure to update you with more information as and when we come across it.

Samsung son unos irrespetuosos en actualizar siempre el ultimo modelo,lo que hay que hacer es no comprarles mas ningun celular, y van a ver como van a respetar a los usuarios, Gustavo Baez samsung S5

I think that this devices should be updated to Android Marshmallow:
-Galaxy Note 2, Note 3, Note 4 and Note 5;
-Galaxy S4, S5, S6, S6 Edge+
-Galaxy Alpha
-Galaxy Tab A, Galaxy Tab S, Galaxy Tab S2 and why note galaxy tab 4.
I know that samsung will not release marshmallow for note 2 or tab 4, but I hope that they will finally learn from apple that updated the iphone 4s to ios 9(4s is 4 years older). This could be a great list.

P.S I am a big samsung fan.

Android M 6.0 is around the corner & Sammy’s late 2014 / early 2015 flagship (Note 4) is still on 5.0.1. What will it take to get to 5.1.1? let alone make it to Marshmallow!
i hear about how hard it is to get firmware upgrades for all the different models and versions of phone but still…a huge company as Samsung should be able to handle it.

have you tried kies ? as I have the sm- g900v and I was told the phone was up to date when I went to check for updates ( In Android settings,on kit kat 4.4.4. btw )however when I hooked my up to my pc and click on kies the BOG5 update appeared

2 months 30 days ago

Not sure what to say … Thinking about this … I had enough. But from my opinion they should have skipped lollipop and move from kit kat to marshmallow. Don’t know about others but me;! I am disappointed with lollipop. If I knew that thus was like this I would have not updated. But I do hope that they will think about it and redo upgrades for 2013 year phones such as sm-n9005
