Many OEMs have published the list of handsets that will eventually receive the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Joining the bandwagon is the carrier T-Mobile with its own set of devices that are eligible for the latest firmware update.
According to T-Mobile’s official Website, the HTC One M8, HTC One M9, LG G3, LG G4, LG G Stylo, along with a slew of Google devices like Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 and Nexus 9 will be receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Speaking of Samsung, the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge+ are reportedly eligible for the update. Apart from smartphones and phablets, the latest Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 slate will also be getting the firmware update at some point.
As expected, T-Mobile will reportedly be following three stages to update all the compatible devices to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This includes “Manufacturer Development” where the carrier and the OEMs sign up to roll out the new firmware, followed by “T-Mobile Testing” where the evaluation happens and finally, the status will be moved to “Completed,” which translates to ready-for-roll-out.
Apart from T-Mobile, no other carrier has published a comprehensive official list so far. However, it was recently discovered that AT&T and Verizon versions of the high-end, second-generation Motorola Moto X and the budget-friendly Motorola Moto E will not be receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.

Speaking of Sony, an alleged list was made available earlier containing the possible devices earmarked for Marshmallow update. However, Sony has also officially listed out the eligible Xperia devices, including Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 Premium, Xperia Z4 Tablet, Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet, Xperia M5, Xperia C5 Ultra, Xperia M4 Aqua and Xperia C4.
