Samsung has updated the agenda to release Android 6.0 Marshmallow in its devices. Last week a preliminary list revealed that Samsung would begin to release the update in December, but the new leaked and published in blog PhoneArena list reveals other devices will be upgradeable to Android Marshmallow and some changes in the process of deploying.
For starters, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 and Galaxy Tab S2 8 also will be upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the first phase along with phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Galaxy S6 Edge+. Also, the Galaxy J7, Galaxy J5, Galaxy J2, Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4 are now part of the second phase of the update, along with the Galaxy A8. However, the Galaxy A7 is no longer in the list of devices that can be upgraded to Marshmallow; the update for the Galaxy J1 is listed as canceled.

Most of these scheduled updates are still in the approval process, but everything indicates that the update to Android Marshmallow for the Galaxy Note 5, and is up to enterprise servers while the update for the Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are in testing phase. It is worth mentioning that the model codes from this list does not fully agree with the above list, so it is possible that each of these belong to a different market. However, lists can serve as a guide to what devices could be upgraded in most markets.
