    Even though Android M has been officially announced and rolled out to OEMs for development, this of course doesn't mean that your mobile manufacturer can get it to you right away. Most manufacturers heavily modify their versions of Android and this takes time. The higher the modification, the more time it takes to get it to your device. Since Nexus devices are running stock Android, they will be the first ones to get it. In following is a list of most used devices and their current status in regards to what now is commonly known as the Marshmallow version update.

    Red means that that device will not be getting an Android M update
    Orange color indicates that the update is not yet confirmed or it's unclear if the OEM will follow throw on their promise.
    Green color indicated that the device will get the M update
    Blue means that Marshmallow is rolling out or already released for that device.

    Samsung usually never announces which devices they plan to update so it's impossible to say. That said, considering that device never made it past Android OS, v4.2.2; it's safe to say that it won't be getting any updates in the future.

    So happy Stylo is getting Marshmallow. How long do you it will take T-MOBILE or anyone else?

    I know right? I didn't really expect a phone like that to get a M update to be honest.
    Not sure but don't expect to see it any time soon. We're likely gonna see the majority of updates between Q1 and Q2 2016.

    Android One devices were promised Marshmallow, but so far, only the 1st gen devices have seen or will see the updates. No one has been able to confirm for the 2nd generation models (like the Infinix Hot 2 I'm currently using). Any ideas...?

    Considering the first gen got them, I'm fairly sure that the second will as well. Give it a few weeks :)

    Yeah, that's a thing but I would be surprised if HTC leaves Butterfly 2, as One M8 and Butterfly 2 have about completely same hardware. Let's see what HTC does.
