At Google's 29 September event, the company is expected to unveil the 2015 series flagship LG Nexus 5 and Huawei Nexus 6P next week.
Although we know that the new phones will come packed with the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, there is no word on when the search engine giant's Android team would release the same OS update to previous generation Nexus series. If the report from Canada is to be believed, we don't have to wait too long.
Telus, touted to be Canada's second biggest telecommunication firm, posted a release schedule of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, revealing the new Google mobile OS will be first rolled out to Motorola Nexus 6 and LG Nexus 5 on 5 October, a week after the official launch in San Francisco.
Once the word got out in the media, the software release details pertaining to Nexus series were taken down (HERE) for unknown reasons.
But by then, many blogs had a screenshot (HERE, courtesy Mobile Syrup) of the Telus page. Google is yet to respond to the speculations surrounding Android Marshmallow release. We believe the company will choose to remain silent until the 29 September event.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow is confirmed to come with native support for fingerprint sensor input, leaner and faster Chrome browser, Google Photos, Auto back-up -- from where all app's user-data (less than 25MB) will automatically be stored in Google Drive. Power saving features have been incorporated in the Android Marshmallow to extend battery life, which was sorely missed in the previous OS, v5.0 Lollipop.
Stay tuned for more updates.
