Given how many devices Samsung puts out every year (somewhat less this year actually), it’s not surprising when they abandon one of them for future software updates, though we’re intrigued to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth this time. A hopeful Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 user asked Samsung UK whether they should be expecting an update to Android Lollipop, since Android KitKat was getting inconvenient. Unfortunately, they were given the worst possible answer as a rep confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 won’t be getting Android Lollipop:
@reubenupstone I’m afraid the Galaxy Ace 4 will not be getting the Lollipop update Reuben.
Unfortunately, due to its low end nature, the development community hasn’t put any time into developing ROMs for the little guy, so this is probably the end of the road for the Ace 4 if you’re looking for something more software-wise. Still, the Galaxy Ace 5 might be announced soon given that the Ace 4 was announced around a year ago, and perhaps that will have Android Lollipop.
