Google's recently launched firmware Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be released to three models of Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 tablet -- SM-T715 (LTE), SM-T712 (3G) and SM-T710 (Wi-Fi) -- that currently run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

A report by Venture Capital Post has claimed that Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 is confirmed for Q2 (second quarter) 2016. There are also reports that the software will be released to the device in April next year, but one has to take it with a pinch of salt as Samsung is yet to officially announce it. 

The same website has claimed in another report that "Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is in development for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow software", giving a hint that the new software update could be drawing close but no detail has been divulged on the same. However, a firmware forum has claimed that Marshmallow will come to 20 models of the Note 4 device.

It may be recalled that PC-Tablet had earlier claimed in a report that Samsung devices like the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy Note 4 may get Android 6.0 Marshmallow by the end of this year. 

Samsung is yet to reveal the list of its devices that will get the new software, but T-Mobile has announced on its support page that the new software will come to Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Tab S2.

On the other hand, a report by GSM Arena has claimed that as many as nine Samsung devices -- Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy A8, Galaxy A7, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 – will get the new firmware.
