Many Android devices are getting updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in phases across the globe. Meanwhile, a new version dubbed Android 6.0.1 is apparently getting rolled out.
According to the credible tipster and ROM developer @LlabTooFeR, search giant Google has started sending out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to Android One handsets. As it turns out, it is a minor update that brings in “bug fixes and stability improvements.”
To top it off, this update also packs Google's December security patch for Android handsets, as noted by GSM Arena. The first device to receive this minor update is reportedly the Cherry Mobile G1 smartphone, which is a Philippines exclusive device.
Android Police says this mini update is tied to the build number MMB29K. Google’s Nexus devices, on the other hand, are apparently running the same Android 6.0 Marshmallow as of Monday. This includes latest releases like the LG-built Nexus 5X and Huawei-made Nexus 6P.
It is worth reminding that Google recently revealed its major plan to send out monthly security patches for all Android devices. However, Android One is special because it apparently received the November security patch in October itself, according to Reddit. Following Android One, the update for Nexus devices is being awaited, however, Google might take a couple of months to roll out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to all the eligible devices across the globe.
Not long ago, the same tipster also said, after the Android 6.0.1 update, that Google will reportedly start sending out Android 6.1 Marshmallow updates. However, the roll-out time frame is believed to be not until early-2016.
