It will be very very (very) unlikely that the 8350 will get OS 6.

Did I say "very"? ...just my opinion.

Thanks for the link !

.. Hopefully I will be able to, it would be nice to be able to upgrade without having to upgrade the whole phone lol.

There is possibility that all devices currently running OS 5.0 will get OS 6.0 or at least some functionality of OS 6.0

Sorry, that's not true, as devices like the 9000 have such low app memory it would not hold the OS itself.

There is a possibility that "some", not "all" devices running OS 5 will get 6. And very few of those.
