The exact launch date is still a closely guarded secret over at Google. Motorola is one of the most popular Android handset manufacturers because the smartphone maker makes it its business to offer a near-stock experience to users of its phones, and that’s a plus. It is unclear as to how long of a delay this will result in, but if you have ordered a Moto 360 (2015), maybe you should check your emails to see if you have received similar messages from Motorola as well. That means the upcoming Android OS will be available soon. The update will take a few time to reach customers.
To set the stage for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop would be sent to the Moto G series on September 29, 2015.
Unsurprisingly, Motorola has the easiest task when it comes to updating their device’s firmware. Afterwards, domestic wireless service providers will need to run the obligatory soak tests before rolling out Android Marshmallow on a public scale.
After Tuesday’s announcement of the newest members of the Nexus family, the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, we were also told that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update would come pre-installed on this latest hardware, with the update rolling out over-the-air in the coming weeks to existing Nexus hardware from 2013 moving forward.
While we would take that with a grain of salt, the tip is plausible seeing as the release was supposed to begin already.
Initially, the Moto G, G2 and G3 owners would need to get the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and would be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Unfortunately, there is word, that Motorola will not be bringing the latest Android update to the older first-generation Moto G. Based on a Geek Snack report, the original Moto X may also not receive the Marshmallow update. Since there are no reports on forums and discussion panels about the Moto X update yet, we can only assume that it is just a matter of days until the update goes live.
