Google rolls out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to Android One devices

Google's Android 6.0 Marshmallow has been around for a few weeks and the first security patch is already on its way to Android One devices. As per reports, the new security patch, named Android 6.0.1, is a minor upgrade and precedes a more meaningful upgrade like Android 6.1 which should arrive in the near future.

Android 6.0.1 was spotted in an Android One device named Cherry Mobile Android G1 in the Philippines. However, the fact that it never appeared in Nexus phone which usually receive the first bite of Android upgrades makes us believe that it may not get released in a large scale as a larger upgrade- Android 6.1 Marshmallow, is in the pipeline.

It's not very clear what Android 6.0.1 is about but we wonder if it solves any security issue that's encountered only by Android One phones.

Earlier in October, Android One phones were among the first to receive over-the-air Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates when Google launched the new OS along with two new Nexus phones.
Karbonn Sparkle V was the first Android One device to get launched in the UK last year and has been followed by many other devices since, but the limitations of such devices in terms of advanced hardware and software has kept them from doing well in an utterly competitive market.
