Motorola Conducts Android 6.0 Marshmallow Moto G 2015 Soak Tests
It wasn’t too long ago when Android 6.0 Marshmallow was only known as ‘Android M.’ Now, we have two Nexus phones – the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P – running the version out-of-the-box, and HTC One A9 being the first non-Nexus device to launch with the new version.
One manufacturer that also seems to be ready to transition to Android Marshmallow is Motorola. The firm seems to be preparing the latest iteration of the OS for the 2015 version of the Moto G.
Indication of this comes from screenshots from a Motorola soak test that were released on Google+.
They show the update being run with a version number of 23.11.en.03, and a Marshmallow build number of MPI24.65-3. The Android Security Patch Level reads November 1, 2015, but we don’t expect this to mean that the update will be releasing it in the next few days.
So far, there isn’t too much worth noting about the soak test other than the fact that it’s happening, and that Motorola is readying its Moto G devices for a transition from Lollipop to Marshmallow.
Considering though that the Moto G 2015 only launched this year, it’s unlikely that Motorola will be incorporating anything fancy that would stand out.
The general consensus behind the soak tests conducted by Motorola is that the software may be nearly ready for release. However, it’s a little difficult to tell when the soak tests will end, which would be the initiation of pushing the updates to mainstream consumers of the device.
A hunch tells us it might be towards the end of December, but it’s only just a hunch.
