Is your phone running on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow?
Marshmallow — that’s the final name of Android M. This year’s Google Nexus devices are expected to roll out with Android 6.0, also known as Android Marshmallow. Well, Marshmallow — the name sounds cool but isn’t as exotic as “Lollipop” which is the nickname of last year’s Android 5.0.
History of Android naming excluding last year’s Android Lollipop.
Google says that Android 6.0 Marshmallow will bring a lot of goodies including native support for fingerprint sensors (and iris scanner maybe?) and tighter security configurations. The OS will also come along with full support for USB type-C and microUSB 3.0 connection as well, not leaving out support for the older microUSB variants. What this means is that a lot of USB type-C Android devices are going to be on the way by year end.
Android 6.0 will also bring optimization for better RAM management. By doing this, high end Android smartphones will be able to run smoothly with less RAM just like the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus are having 1GB RAMs and still running large games and apps seamlessly.
