The first iteration of leaked Samsung Marshmallow roadmap surfaced online just a few days ago, which contained the list of eligible devices for the new update along with its Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) for flagship devices such as the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Now an updated version of the roadmap has leaked online with the confirmation that Galaxy S4 and Note 3 will not get the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.
Contrary to the previous leak, which featured an update rollout spread across two phases, the new roadmap features the Marshmallow rollout spanning across three phases. The first phase of the rollout will include the flagship and high-end Galaxy smartphones as well as a couple of premium tablets. The second phase will feature a bunch of mid-range and affordable smartphones, while the final or third phase will include two budget tablets from the Galaxy series.
According to the new roadmap, the update for Galaxy S6 Edge+ has now been pushed back to January from its earlier proposed rollout in December, which was in sync with Note 5's schedule. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge remain unchanged from their January release schedule.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note 5's update seems imminent as its status now shows "Uploading". On the other hand, the Note 4, Note Edge and Galaxy S5 have been approved for Marshmallow update as per their earlier schedule.
The Note 4 and Note Edge are due for the new update in February, while the Galaxy S5 will get Marshmallow in April. The Galaxy A8 now has an ETA set for March.
The Galaxy A, E and J series of smartphones are pending approval with their ETA still unknown. The only exception is the Galaxy J1 which has been cancelled for some reason.
Moving on to the phase 3 rollout list, we have the Galaxy Tab A 9.7 and the Galaxy Tab A 8 models, which are still awaiting approval with no ETA in sight.
