Telus has updated its software release schedule and Marshmallow’s rollout seems to be on track for many one-time flagship smartphones, but unfortunately, a few devices are still facing a delay.  Telus warns that its schedule is fluid and all dates are “approximate and subject to change.”

Below is a revised look at Telus’ plans for upcoming devices prepped for Android 6.0. Most notably, the Nexus family of smartphones are all on track for a monthly security update on March 9th, but the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ have both been pushed back a few days to March 13th.

In addition, the Galaxy S6 edge also shifted from the original March 16th Marshmallow date to March 30th.

The good news is owners of the Samsung Galaxy S6 will finally get their hands on Android 6.0 when it arrives on April 13th. Finally, new to the list is the Moto X Play, which is tentatively scheduled to receive Marshmallow on March 9th.

      Samsung said March for the Note 5, GS6 and edge and April for the Note 4, GS5 etc.

    Actually just to correct something re: Moto X Play. It actually got the Marshmallow update months ago (6.0). What Telus is saying is that the X Play is getting the 6.0.1 update to the original 6.0 Marshmallow rollout which is great news.

    I’m ready for the Android 7 developer preview at this point. Marshmallow is old news.

    LG is pushing the update for the G3 I guess is good news for G3 owners

    any word from bell when updates coming out

      Usually they are released around the same time. Maybe a few days before or after Telus. I played with the Samsung S7 & S7 edge earlier during the week and the Samsung representative told me the marshmallow update for last year’s devices would be relased once the S7 & S7 edge are released.
