Android 6.0 Marshmallow rollout to start October 5

by

Marshmallow

Its seems Google's next major mobile OS, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, will start its protracted rollout process on October 5.

Whenever Google launches a new OS, it's invariably its own Nexus devices that get the update first.

Canadian website Mobilesyrup has encountered a software release schedule from a local network operator revealing that the Nexus 5 and and Nexus 6 will received Android M on October 5.

If true, it seems a good bet that this is the designated release date for Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Of course, it will take some time for other, non-Nexus phones to make the leap to the new OS. Custom UIs and network operator interference invariably hold back the update process for the rest by at least a couple of months - and often longer.

But it's good to know that Google's new OS is likely to be on its way less than a week after its debut on new Nexus hardware. Google is holding a special event on September 29, where it's expected to launch two new smartphones - the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P.

As the naming suggests, the Nexus 5X will be a successor to 2013's Nexus 5, while the Nexus 6P will be a follow-up to last year's Nexus 6. However, while LG returns for the Nexus 5 follow-up, the Nexus 6P will be made by Huawei rather than Motorola.

This has to be better than Lollipop, because despite some good features this current OS has been a badly coded, lazy mess. The 1st gen Nexus 7 for example never got better even with the updates, it became completely unusable, I eventually gave up with lollipop in disgust and flashed it with 4ICS, finally getting my tablet back. My Nexus 4 phone still experiences really annoying bugs, lag, glitches and odd behaviour, even after recent updates. Both Google devices incidentally, what an irony! Not exactly confidence inspiring that they can't even support their own hardware.
If Marshmallow is half as bad, I'm jumping ship and migrating to Apple. We'll see.

Whatever Android 6 and Samsung's next devices brings, will be good indicators of what we can expect from Apple in term of 'innovations' in iOS 10.
