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.
