Elephone will be rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates for the Elephone P8000 and P6000 Pro, while the new P9000 range will ship with Android 6.0 out of the box.
There was a time in the past that Chinese smartphones were among the last to get the latest Android updates. Either the newest Android release would come up to 12 months late or in some cases not at all.
The past 12 months has seen a dramatic change brought around by a combination of Chinese phone companies wanting to update phones now and chip maker Mediatek being a lilttle more forthcoming with sources codes (at least to the manufacturers who use them).
So which Chinese phones will receive Android 6.0? Well we hope the majority of them will, but at least we know that some Elephone owners will be happy to hear they will receive Marshmallow (sometime in the future). Elephone have confirmed that the Elephone P8000 and P6000 Pro will definitely get Android 6, while other phones are under testing. New Elephone phones in the P9000 range will ship with Android 6.0 out of the box.
