Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow hits Android One devices
Android 6.0 Marshmallow has been available since early October, but there are still a lot of notorious high-end and mid-range handsets that need to get their update. However, it looks like Android 6.0.1 is already fit to roll out and - strange enough - the first one to get the update is not a flagship, but a handset that is part of the Android One initiative.
Reports of the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow hitting the first Android One handsets came out last week, but the curious part is that the Android security patch level seems to carry the wrong date - December 1st, 2015. On the other hand, the date might be right, but the update might have been an accident. Cherry Mobile Android G1, the handset that received the Android 6.0.1 update, is only sold in the Philippines.
This seems like a minor update, and no changes have been reported so far. Considering this, it is safe to assume that Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow only brings various bug fixes and stability improvements. According to HTC ROM developer @LlabTooFeR quoted by PhoneArena, Google plans to roll out Android 6.1 Marshmallow after this minor update, but that will only happen next year.
