Google is holding an event on September 29th, and while most of the attention will be on the new Nexus smartphones, the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, owners of the older Nexus devices are mostly just interested in when they’ll be getting the next version of Android, Android Marshmallow. Thanks to Canadian mobile provider, Telus, we might have a tentative date for the Android Marshmallow update for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 – October 5th. The information was available for all to see on the Telus forum earlier today, but has since been taken down – naturally, we have a screenshot of the information in case you don’t believe us:
If that’s the timing of a carrier-based update to Android Marshmallow, the update to unlocked devices should be even faster – whether it will be available as soon as Google says the word on September 29th seems doubtful, but it does seem like it will only be a matter of days. It’s also important to keep in mind that carrier updates take a few weeks even if they start quite early, so don’t get your hopes up too high just yet.
