Telus expecting Android M updates for Nexus 5 and 6 on October 5

According to new support documents, Telus is expecting to push the upcoming Android Marshmallow update to both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 beginning October 5. Google is hosting an event on September 29, in which it will likely reveal new hardware, along with more information about the release of the new OS. The carrier notes that the dates are subject to change, though with Google's generally quick release of the OS, the timeline isn't too far fetched.

On September 29, Google is expected to make both the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P official, which will both launch running the new version of Android. It won't be long before we know the official release plans, so keep it locked to Android Central for full coverage of the event and announcements.

  • Hopefully everything runs smoothly. I'm really really really digging the awesomeness of Android 5.1.1. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I haven't flashed the dev preview but alot of people are saying it performs great. You're definitely gonna see an increase in performance with M too
  • Awesome Posted via the Android Central App
  • Unless they borked the final release, we shouldn't see a. 0.2 release for a bit this time. Preview is pretty nice... +++ Insert witty signature, watch as others not get it, profit +++
  • Yea, preview is nice. Battery on my nexus 6 improved dramatically. Only reason I got rid of it was some apps weren't compatible and was slowing down the phone and Android pay didn't work. The native voicemail is awesome too. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I hope this also means that the Nexus 5X and 6P will be for sale at the same time. I want a 5X!!!
  • Amazing the Nexus 5 lasted this long. Posted via the Android Central App
  • It's an amazing phone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • This phone runs as fast/faster than every 2015 flagship to date. Wasn't it Phil who said that? Nexus 5 | T-Mobile $30 Plan
  • It's one of the best phones ever made. It's still as fast as day 1. Posted via Nexus 5
  • I'll be flashing the day it's announced. The latest stage fright patch brought back the memory leak for me. Nexus 5 | T-Mobile $30 Plan
  • Can't wait for Android M, I hope it really does improve the battery life because currently the battery is disappointing on my Nexus 6, other than that gripe I'm loving the performance on 5.1.1 Posted via the Android Central App via My Nexus 6
  • I can tell you that battery does improve with Android M. Plus some great features and new apps permission controls. Can't wait to get it back. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Honestly surprised the 2013 Nexus 7 is getting it. I love this thing though. In respect to what you guys are saying about the nexus 5 and its predfrmance, my nexus 7 is the same. Still snappy. I hope Google gives it a refresh next year though. What an amazing tablet
