Now that Google has released the Marshmallow update for Nexus devices, our attention turns towards other manufacturers and when they plan to release the latest update to the Android OS. Samsung isn’t known for being particularly speedy at releasing updates but the company has reportedly begun working on the Marshmallow update for some of its more popular devices.

The folks over at SamMobile have got some inside information about which devices Samsung has begun testing the Marshmallow update for. Naturally, it’s worth remembering that none of these details have been confirmed by the Korean manufacturer and the list is preliminary, which means if you phone isn’t on the list, it doesn’t mean it won’t be getting the Marshmallow update.

With that in mind, here’s the list:

As you could probably expect, Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5 from this year will all be treated to the Marshmallow update. Also on the list is last year’s Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge (albeit only the Verizon model) as well as the Galaxy S5 and indeed, the mid-range feature-packed Galaxy S5 Neo.

It’s unsurprising that no devices from 2013 are mentioned on the list but as we mentioned, this list is preliminary so we may yet see other devices get the update. Like always, there’s no known ETA for the update but hopefully it won’t take Samsung too long to bring the update to our devices.
