The Android 6.0 Marshmallow is expected to launch later today alongside the new Nexus devices. Google is already testing the new operating system over the summer, and the developer preview is also available for users.
According to a new report from Android Police, Android 6.0 Marshmallow roll out is expected to commence from October 5th for Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 9. The same date was mentioned by Telus on their website for the Nexus 6 as well.
The update will be available over-the-air (OTA), but it may be a little slow. Users will have to wait for some time for the OTA to arrive, but they’ll get it eventually. Alternatively, the factory images will also be available for the devices so users interesting in flashing their device can do so manually by downloading it for their devices, or if they are rooted.
Google has an event coming up later today for the launch of Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X later today. We’ll have more details about the official availability date for the new operating system as well as the pricing details for the new handsets.
