Samsung has released the official Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Update for the Galaxy E5 (SM-E500) mid-range device just few weeks ago already and it's available in India and Russia. Now, it's his big brother's turn, the Galaxy E7 (SM-E700). The update packs lots of performance improvements, bug fixes and many new features for the E family.
However, SamsungUK has confirmed via its official account that the Galaxy E7 WILL NOT get updated to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Even Though that both devices (E5 and E7) packs very similar specs.
@benediktus_snd We don’t like disappointing our customers, but have had it confirmed that the E7 is not going to move to Lollipop.
There was no reason mentioned but we reached out for the company for an explanation and they replied that only the UK region E7 users will not get the lollipop update without clarifying the reason. So, this only applied to the UK region and carriers only.
