Google brings Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to Android One devices

android one 2

Google’s first Marshmallow update, Android 6.0.1, has begun rolling out to Android One devices. The release brings Google’s latest security patches, and it is expected to be the only minor update before Android 6.1. But it’s not clear if Nexus devices will get it yet.

Android 6.0.1 first started appearing on the Cherry Mobile Android G1 handset built for the Philippines. Although it arrived with no release notes, we know that no major changes have been made — it mostly consists of minor, under-the-hood improvements.

One interesting thing to note is that the update brings a new Android security patch dated December 1 — even though it’s only late November. It would appear, then, that Google’s next patch is already ready to make its debut, and will be available in early December.

It’s not yet clear if Google’s Nexus devices will get Android 6.0.1. The company is said to be hard at work on Android 6.1 already, and there is speculation that the devices will be upgraded directly to that instead, skipping this release.

We should note, however, that none of this is confirmed just yet, so take it with a pinch of salt for now. And be on the lookout for an Android 6.0.1 update if you have an Android One device.
