According to the guys over at AndroidPIT most device’s won’t receive Android M as the choice is to manufacturers to release the new OS. According to sources, Android 5.0 Lollipop already took care of “64-bit processors and large amounts of RAM.” and that Android 6.0 “M” will require much better hardware in order to work smooth.

Even the Nexus line up of devices will most likely not receive Android 6.0, specially not the older models like the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 10.

    This article is like..written by idiots. Only assumptions and nothing else but this. Google didn’t give any detail about android 6.0. They call it M and that is it, no official devices list, no name, nothing. You wrote an article where you said that the name will be muffin. Well this is crap, google didn’t mention anything about this. No support for older devices? Where the fuck this came from? Nexus 4 was launched in 2012 with android jellybean. It got kitkat and also lollipop. Google does not send updates to devices within the 18 months period. The proof are nexus 4, 7(2012) and 10 who are all older than 3 years and got the 5.0 version. And they still receive updates. What do i think about your articles? They lack the subject matter. They are just worda not even rumors that you take and write shitty articles. Shame on you!

    If this article is even slightly true & the Nexus 7 2013 won’t recieve the 6.0 update then most likely neither will the original Nexus 5
