Each and every one of us who have and still suffer some problems with the current version of Android are excited about the arrival of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the final version of what Lollipop could be and was not, with even more improvements and additions. Still, every time we jump to a new generation of the operating system the same doubts are on our minds, especially if our terminal is or is not updated to the new version of Android. This we can only know through manufacturer’s word, currently none of them mentioned confirming a list of supported devices.
But not only the manufacturers, because although Google and Nexus range ensures quick updates for two years or more, many also will run out and that is what we will try to figure out. There is no confirmation or anything, not even a rumor with which to build for speculation. Yes, from Artem Russakovskii Google+ user we read he has mentioned the subject and we can not deny that is absolutely right.
He mentions what is more than likely that the terminals Google Nexus 4, Nexus 7 2012 and Nexus 10 will not have Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for their lifetime, all of them more than three years, which would be outside the support updates that Google provides. In addition, although some possibly relevant in the market have the opportunity to be able to upgrade, it is logical that software engineers will not take part of their time to update devices that have already largely been replaced by others and are not even on sale.
The other terminals such as the Nexus 5, Nexus 6 Nexus 9 even the Nexus 7 2013 tablet itself should receive the OTA sooner or later, because for better or worse they fall in the range of supported time and probably be updated one before and another after. Therefore and we repeat, although nothing is confirmed and would be a great joy to see how these devices receive the OTA of a new update and jump to Android 6.0 Marshmallow we should not delude ourselves, we must be realistic and according to custom, best not to wait update.
