Nexus 5 Android Marshmallow Release: 7 Things to Expect

The Nexus 5 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update is confirmed though we still don’t know exactly when Google will take it out of beta and deliver it to the public. Armed with new details, we want to take a look at a few things we expect from the Nexus 5 Android Marshmallow release.

We’ve been using the Nexus 5 since its release back in 2013 and like many of you, we’ve installed every single Android update that Google’s thrown at us. From KitKat to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, we’ve been through it all.

Earlier this year, Google confirmed another system update for the Nexus 5. At Google I/O, the company announced Android M and outlined a number of its key features. The company also released an Android M Developer Preview that’s been available for the Nexus 5 for several months now.

We’re now on the Android M Developer Preview 3 which means that we’re one step closer to the public release of the update that’s now known as Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Google confirmed the name a few days ago ahead of another inevitable announcement.

Rumor has it, Google’s cooking up two new Nexus smartphones, one from LG and the other from Huawei. Google, like Apple, tends to confirm new software details alongside new hardware.

Nexus 5 Android Marshmallow Release Details

Google still isn't talking about the Nexus 5 Android Marshmallow release though we expect it to shower Nexus 5 users with new details in the near future. 

Nexus launch rumors point to an announcement in San Francisco on September 29th. This date isn't set in stone but it appears likely.

This date will likely serve as the launch pad for the two rumored Nexus smartphones and the Android Marshmallow update. And it's here that you can expect Google to outline its public release plans for the first time.

We'd expect the company to talk up Android Marshmallow features and we'd expect it to confirm its roll out plans for older Nexus phones and tablets like the Nexus 5. This is standard Android release protocol and we don't expect anything outlandish from Google.

We also wouldn't be surprised if we saw several Nexus 5 Android 6.0 release rumors emerge ahead of this launch date. We typically about Google's plans before it can reveal said plans. So, if you're interested in Android 6.0, you'll want to keep an eye out in September.
