Well, that didn’t take too long, did it? It’s one of the many benefits you get when you buy your phone unlocked and starting today, owners of the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition will soon get their first taste of Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Keep in mind, the update is only being pushed out on a select few carriers to start: Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular. If you’re using the phone on any other carrier, it seems you’ll have to wait a little longer (networks optimizations and all that).

Motorola’s own David Schuster revealed the good news in a Google+ post, where he says Motorola has also started soak testing Marshmallow for the Motorola Moto X Play in Brazil and India, and the Motorola Moto X Force in Brazil (also known as the Droid Turbo 2 in here in the states).

In the meantime, Motorola will continue work on bringing Marshmallow to all the devices they previously announced in their original blog post. Stay tuned!

Thanks, G!
