Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is one of the midrange smartphones that is likely to get the Android 6.0 Marshmallow, though there has not been any official word as of yet. Samsung Galaxy Core Prime created a flutter earlier, when it became eligible for an upgrade as early as next year.
A number of devices from Samsung, Motorola, LG, Google and HTC will get the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Among Samsung's Galaxy lineup, Grand Prime has officially failed to cut it to the list of devices eligible for upgrade.
Tech analysts and enthusiasts believed that Galaxy Grand Prime across the board could still qualify for the upgrade. In terms of specs, this device sports 2 GB of RAM and a 2 GHz processor which meets up to the requirements for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.
This justifications holds true for Sony's Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra which were recently excluded from the Japanese brand's devices that make it to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update list.
The list posted on Sony Mobile's official blog post is initial and is subject to changes since the manufacturer has been looking forward for more smartphones and tablets to make it to the list of gadgets eligible for update.
Analysts add that the same might hold true for Galaxy Grand Prime, since Samsung is known for surprising users with Android updates. In the past few months, the South Korean manufacturer has been surprising users by releasing a Lollipop update to some of its smartphones and tablets earlier run on Android's version of KitKat.
In September, Samsung released a series of updates for its Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime with a final version of Android's Lollipop across the board.
