Marshmallow is Google’s latest Android operating system which is about to make its debut on the new lineup of Nexus handsets this time next month. We’ve been hearing much on Android 6.0 including the many improvements it brings when comparing it to Android 5.1, with a rollout expected to be sooner rather than later.
It also seems like Google is looking to be pushing out Marshmallow much faster than Lollipop which was plagued with many glitches and issues since debuting this time last year. We’re hoping to not see a repeat of history, anAd if the rollout is as smooth as Google hopes we may see it rolling out to handsets much earlier this time around.
Samsung is rumored to be one of the first manufacturers to get their hands on Marshmallow, as the unique tweaks to make sure it functions as is on their handsets would need to be made. Rumors suggesting Android 6.0 would be rolled out to their current generation models including the Galaxy S6, S6 Plus, and Galaxy Note 5 well before older models which could happen as soon as this year.
This would be a huge difference in time as Lollipop didn’t start making its way to Samsung handsets until early 2015, and was plagued with problems from the very beginning. Developers have been working diligently on the Android 6.0 operating system which is great news for those looking for smooth transition.
Both new Nexus handsets including the Huawei 6P and the LG Nexus 5X will be the first handsets to feature the new Marshmallow operating system and a lot will be riding on the initial rollout. If everything goes as Google is hoping, we could see 6.0 rolling out soon after the new Nexus smartphones are released.
