Certain Android One Devices Are Receiving An Android 6.0.1 Update

Android / Google / Mobile / Tech

It looks like it’s time for Android 6.0 to get it first incremental update as a certain Android One device is currently receiving an update to Android 6.0.1. Right now, the small update is going through a soak test, so a small amount of people will be seeing this update. More specifically, owners of the Cherry Mobile G1 —  available in the Philippines —  Android device are getting the update.

Don’t expect any big fixes, as this update is most likely for bug fixes and security enhancements.  It does, however, look to be included in the December security patch. Google may be pushing this small update in the monthly patch to only provide one update in December and not two, which would be a smarter idea. That said, nothing was mentioned if that’s what Google is planning on doing or not.

LlabTooFeR made a post on Twitter three days ago saying that Android 6.0.1 and Android 6.1 are in Google Labs. The latter will be out next year, which may be a bigger update that what we’re seeing show up now.

Then just yesterday, LlabTooFeR sent out another Tweet saying Android 6.0.1 is being pushed out to Android One devices:

No word as to when Nexus users will see the update. If you are an owner of the Cherry Mobile G1 let us know: are you one of the few to see this update on your device? If so, how’s it working out for you? If you have, let us know by leaving a comment down below, or on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter.
