Google has an event scheduled for September 29th, at which the company is expected to launch its upcoming lineup of Nexus phones, new Chromecast hardware, and more. The two new Nexus devices are surely going to ship with Android Marshmallow, and that means that over-the-air rollout of Marshmallow to older devices is set to begin sometime soon as well.

According to leaked schedule from Canada’s second largest mobile carrier, Telus, the day that’s set to happen is October 5th…

The release schedule was posted on Telus’ website (although it has since been pulled), showing October 5th as the date that the Android M rollout for the current-generation Nexus 6 and Nexus 5 is set to begin (via MobileSyrup).


As you may remember from last year, it was at least a few weeks after the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 were announced that Google started pushing the public release of Lollipop out to the masses. If this date is legitimate, that means Google is planning to ship out Android M to at least the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 just about a week after the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are made official. We’ll see how things pan out.
