If you’re a Galaxy E7 owner based in the United Kingdom who did not see Samsung UK’s tweet over the weekend, we, unfortunately, have some bad news for you. The South Korean manufacturer took to its official Twitter page to announce that the long-awaited Lollipop update will not be ported to the handset.
Naturally, this came as quite a shock to many owners of the E7 who are currently venting their frustration on Twitter, and we can totally understand why. It was only back in June that Samsung announced it would distribute the upgrade for the handset in Q3. Three months later, development has been dropped.
This complete turn around by Samsung is pretty strange considering that the Galaxy E5 has already received the Lollipop treatment, so it doesn’t make sense why the South Korean based company can’t roll it out for the E7, seeing as both devices feature almost identical specifications, with the exception of the latter’s souped-up RAM.
Fortunately for Galaxy E7 users elsewhere, there is a chance that the Lollipop update for the E7 is only canned for the UK.
