After Google announced Android 6.0 Marshmallow alongside the launch of the new Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P smartphones last week, users of flagship devices from major smartphone manufacturers are now eagerly waiting to use the latest Android version on their handsets. Although South Korean tech giant Samsung has not formally announced the smartphones that will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow, a report has claimed to have come up with a list that reveals the company’s flagship handsets that will receive the update soon.
According to SamMobile, Samsung has started testing Marshmallow on multiple flagship devices that include last year’s Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4. The list also includes the Galaxy S5 Neo, which is considered to be a feature-rich, mid-range smartphone.
The leaked list is a preliminary one, meaning that more Samsung devices could get the Android 6.0 Marshmallow in future, even if the list does not include them, SamMobile reported.
