Which T-Mobile phones will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow?

Wondering if your phone will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow? Be sure you are not alone, we’re all desperately waiting for that notification. Android fans are quick to jump on Google whenever they learn a new major update has become available from Google, and the lack of information can be rather frustrating. T-Mobile subscribers won’t have to look through multiple news sites and forums, though. Magenta is being awesome and revealing its entire upgrade plans for Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

T-Mobile’s dedicated Android 6.0 upgrade page is pretty straight forward. It shows a list of devices that will eventually get the new software. Devices are then labeled into 3 categories: Manufacturer Development, T-Mobile Testing and Completed. These pretty much describe the stage at which each phone can be found.

The list of devices to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow includes the following: 

  • HTC One M8
  • HTC One M9
  • LG G3
  • LG G4
  • LG G Stylo
  • Nexus 5
  • Nexus 6
  • Nexus 7
  • Nexus 9
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 5
  • Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
  • Samsung Galaxy S5
  • Samsung Galaxy S6
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S2


As you can expect, very few of these devices are on the Completed stage at the time of this post’s publishing. Most of these are still under Manufacturer Development, essentially leaving Nexus devices alone in other categories. Most Nexi are under Completed, by the way; only the Nexus 6 is still undergoing network testing.

What a handy tool this is! T-Mobile users can just click on the button below to head over to the carrier’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow update page. Details will continue to be updated as the roll-out advances. Don’t we wish all manufacturers did this?!

    I know its still being updated but I’d be frustrated if I had a newer t-mobile phone and I saw that list. Its nice and all but its gonna have people wondering why their phone isn’t on the list. Panic will follow lol

  • Glenn Gore

    This list isn’t too surprising. My Samsung Galaxy S4 never got the Android Lollipop upgrade from T-Mobile, they never even said a word about that update, while friends’ AT&T GS4’s did. The absolutely sorry and sad state of updating Android phones is what finally pushed me to the iPhone, I am not putting up with the willy-nilly updates, broken promises, and never-appearing updates for Android again.

      That’s why I turned to custom roms and never looked back.

      • Keefe Buxton Lehman

        Is why I turned Nexus and Never looked back. Google even has instructions on how to compile a bloat free update including Google Apps. Not to mention the monthly security updates. It is nice when all updates come from Google and don’t need to worry about Manufacturer or provider.

    This list needs to be way bigger.

    Saaweet! Hopefully my galaxy s6 edge will be getting the coveted Android Marshmallow this month! I will say this, for T-Mobile’s faults (dropped calls, texts not being sent, bad coverage range) they sure are on their update game.

    • Keefe Buxton Lehman

      WIFI calling is all I am going to say. After moving into a new place found not even the mighty Verizon could get through the building fire walls. T-Mobile has been a blessing and changed over for just that one feature after finding the friend who got the most heat about their carrier was the only person not missing calls and sms from my crib.

    It’s absolutely great for T-Mobile to be making this move, but it’s a great point as to how infuriating that Android manufacturers have such terrible long term update support outside of the Nexus line. The Galaxy S4, only two years old now, is not on the list and likely done with updates, whereas Apple’s iPhone 4S, four years old now, has iOS 9, the latest update.

    • Keefe Buxton Lehman

      I think comparing Android and Apple is like comparing Apples and Oranges. Android is an Operating System not a product like an Apple device. Its like blaming Microsoft after purchasing say a Dell who did not update drivers to components needed for a new Windows release. As I stated above if I go Android I go Nexus as it is the closest thing to a full product. Google makes their money via content unlike Samsung who only makes money when people buy their devices so updating a devices more than once is actually counter productive to their business. They need people to go out and buy a new device every year. I still Rock my Nexus 7 from what 3 or so years ago and although Lollipop was a bit rough at first the tablet is still receiving updates and running like a champ on Marshmallow. Same with the N5 that I admittedly gave to the girl as I broke for the N6 but she got the N5 after her S5 took a fall but after getting a new Galaxy every year and a half has no plans on ditching the OG N5 antime soon and if so will be for the new N5. I hope its true going foreword Google will even be designing Nexus Hardware and contracting a manufacturer to build it. If so next years Nexus line will be the closest thing to Android and the Iphone actually being true competitors.

    Not so true. My device says “Stage 3: The software has been approved to launch and is now available” I connect via wifi and direct connect via USB to get the updates and it says it has the most up to date installed which I don’t the the newer OS installed.
