For all other devices still no specific dates are known but from Samsung soon ensure that more devices will receive Android Marshmallow. Two good examples are the Galaxy S5, which has already received the update in Korea for the model SM-G900L, and the Galaxy Note 4, which international model SM-N910C in Poland has already received Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Motorola: Android Upgrade Marshmallow
During the time when Motorola was part of Google, its devices receiving the update almost as fast as the Nexus. Still, this manufacturer usually quite fast updates to new versions of Android (although with Lollipop not all models have been so lucky), not only for having belonged to Google but also because their terminals do not have layer customization, which considerably speeds up the update process.
The Moto X Play starts receiving Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow in Canada and India. There have been several screenshots with the upgrade but Motorola has not yet made an official statement announcing the upgrade version of X-Play.
Bjorn Kilburn, vice president of Software Production of Motorola, made public the list of terminals that are planned update to the latest version of Android through the official blog of Motorola. In its statement, Kilburn policy reaffirms Motorola to provide the best possible experience to users and prevent their devices bring too much bloatware. With Android 6.0, you can have advanced control of tones and volumes in addition to backing up data and applications. Motorola, therefore, has decided to remove the software that did this in the update, i.e., the update will remove Moto Assist and Motorola Migrate.
LG: Update to Android Marshmallow
The LG G4 upgraded to Android Marshmallow between late last year and early this. LG has also brought directly to the LG G3 Marshmallow bypassing Lollipop. The LG G2 seems to be staying with Lollipop by the manufacturer but as always the community comes to the rescue and may already have Marshmallow in G2 with Cyanogen Mod 13. The latest device to join the list is the LG Zero (Class ).
The main problem is that LG does not usually report on their schedule updates, so we can only speculate on these dates based on what we have experienced in previous generations.
ASUS: Update to Android Marshmallow
ASUS terminals are not the fastest to receive updates to new versions. The range of devices Zenfone 4, 5 and six has received Lollipop and still no news of Marshmallow. For the new family of Zenfone 2, ASUS is preparing a new update to Marshmallow will arrive in the second quarter. ASUS new terminals we saw at IFA 2015 as new Max, will also receive this update as ASUS has confirmed from its official forum.
ASUS has released through its Zen Talk forum ASUS device list and the date will be updated to Marshmallow. The date is not very specific as regards the second quarter, but it sure made good use of the term, so we assume that we will see the update in June.
HTC: Upgrade to Android Marshmallow
HTC has been the only company that has officially confirmed that their devices M9 and M9 HTC One + will have upgraded to Android Marshmallow. If HTC keeps a pace of updates that took Android Lollipop at the high end, it is more likely that the HTC One M9 receive the new version in January 2016. As for the M8 will also receive Android 6.0 more or less the same while his successor.
One of the biggest advantages that have HTC users is that this company has a policy of open communication with their customers regarding software updates, which update on their official blog and its update page (directed latter mainly its North American) clients. Not only that but also HTC offers a warranty upgrade its terminals two years (when other manufacturers offer 18 months).
Filtration @LlabTooFeR recently he made known the list of HTC smartphones that would be updated Marshmallow and today HTC have official confirmation that the list was correct. Also, the manufacturer has also said that both the HTC One M9 and M8 will be updated before the end of 2015.

Now we also know the date on which it is expected that the terminals of the second mark, Honor, receive the new update. The official account of Honor in India made public on his Twitter that receives Marshmallow Honor in February.
Huawei gives both terminals as of Honor with his particular version of Android, its Emotion UI or EMUI. This is a layer of customization possible away from the Android Stick. We hope that thanks to the collaboration that Huawei has narrowed with Google we can see some changes and improvements in EMUI.
It is surprising that no information on updating the P8 Lite, launched a few months ago, but on other phones 2014.
BQ: Update to Android Marshmallow

Thanks to its strategy of bringing their devices to market with Android without additives can quickly upgrade to new versions as they do not have to adapt the layer of customization as with other manufacturers. BQ expect Lollipop update new BQ Series M but most likely is that the series E does not have the new version.
Xiaomi: Update to Android Marshmallow
