There have been rumours that have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, by now a two-and-a-half year old device, would be getting Android Lollipop. Maybe it was blind faith or just hope, but we were hoping that this time this rumour would be true. Unfortunately, some comments made by Samsung Gulf, one of Samsung‘s regional offices, have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 won’t be getting Android Lollipop, which means the dream might be over for an official update.
Somehow it’s not particularly surprising seeing as Samsung has previously said that 18 months from launch is the window that it would be working off for future updates to devices, and the Galaxy Note 2 is way past its prime. If you’re disappointed, all is not lost, as is always the way with Android – plenty of great developers have been working on custom ROMs for some time now that will give you that Lollipop experience if you are adamant you want to have it on your Galaxy Note 2. If that interests you, hop on over to the XDA Forums where you’ll find your Lollipop fix.
