Samsung's Android M update plans leak

Samsung mobile's plans for the rollout of Android Marshmallow to its handset have leaked, all the information inside

Android M is coming, with many major handsets yet to receive the latest operating system from Google.

A new leak from Samsung has given us an idea of when their major handsets will be making the move to Marshmallow, and it could be very soon indeed. The information suggests that major handsets like the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ could both be Android M compliant by the end of December 2015.

Other models will follow in early 2016, with the S6, S6 Edge, Note 4 and Note Edge expected to be updated by February 2016. All other handsets are currently unassigned, including popular models like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and A8.

We're starting to hear rumours of the rollout of Android 6.0 Marshmallow but so far only the original Google handsets have the update, which brings a host of tweaks and changes to Android users. The LG G4 was the first non Google device to get it but not in all parts of the world.

We'll have confirmed dates as soon as possible.
