Last May, Samsung Denmark announced that the Galaxy Note 2 (N7100) is planned on getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, However, the company didn't put a timeframe or ETA (Estimated time of arrival) for the update and it has reached the "In-development" stage about 3 months ago.
After receiving some reports we reached out for more info regarding the update and... Sadly, we got a confirmation today that the official Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 2 has been Canceled, the decision was made after due to the device has failed to pass the final testing stage that performed before the final release.
Samsung always includes its popular TouchWiz UI on top of every new Android release to all its devices, running both "Lollipop + Touchwiz UI" will cause performance issues and lag which will affect the user experience on daily usage.
This is not the first time that Samsung canceled an update for a flagship device, same thing happened to the Galaxy S3, S4 mini, Ace 4, Tab Active, K zoom and tab 3.
UPDATE September,10th !
In other hands, SamsungDenmark and SamsungMobileUK confirmed the news on their official twitter accounts too, admiting that there won't be any Lollipop updates for the Galaxy Note 2 at all.
@KraljDario1 Hej igen. Det er nu bekræftet, at Note 2 ikke opdateres til Lollipop. Desværre.
