Here are the Motorola phones that’ll get an Android 6.0 update


First Google revealed its Android 6.0 update plans, then HTC did, and now it’s Motorola’s turn to talk about its Marshmallow update plans.

Motorola has announced that it currently plans to push Marshmallow to 12 phones, ranging from the Moto G (2nd Gen.) to the DROID Turbo to the Moto X Pure Edition. Interestingly, there’s no mention of the Moto E on this list, it looks like the original Moto X is being left on Lollipop, and the only Moto X (2nd Gen.) that’s named is the Pure Edition (does that mean carrier-branded models are left out?). Here’s the full list provided by Motorola:

  • 2015 Moto X Pure Edition (3rd gen)
  • 2015 Moto X Style (3rd gen)
  • 2015 Moto X Play
  • 2015 Moto G (3rd gen)
  • 2014 Moto X Pure Edition in the US (2nd gen)
  • 2014 Moto X in Latin America, Europe and Asia2 (2nd gen)
  • 2014 Moto G and Moto G with 4G LTE2 (2nd gen)
  • DROID Turbo
  • 2014 Moto MAXX
  • 2014 Moto Turbo
  • Nexus 6

Before you ask, no, Motorola hasn’t revealed when any of these updates will begin rolling out. Instead, Moto says that it’ll “work fast but we won’t push the upgrades out until we know they’re ready.” The good news is that Motorola has been pretty quick about pushing out updates in the past, so it may not be long before Marshmallow begins rolling out its doors.

In other Motorola Marshmallow news, the company says that it’ll actually remove some of its Moto features from Android 6.0 updates. Moto Assist and Motorola Migrate will both be pulled from Marshmallow because Google has its own versions baked into Android 6.0. Motorola will also pull the Motorola Connect Chrome extension because “many consumers have moved from SMS to other over-the-top messaging services.”
