Samsung UK doesn't plan to roll out Android 5.0 Lollipop to Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 owners in the region, according to a tweet published by the official Samsung UK Twitter account. While the company doesn't enjoy bearing bad news for consumers, it's a downer for those rocking the somewhat dated hardware who were eagerly awaiting the update.
@WesoLabeshnai We don't like to give out bad news Rohan but the Note 2 and the Galaxy S3 won't be receiving the Lollipop update.— Samsung Mobile UK (@SamsungMobileUK) July 4, 2015
This tweet doesn't cover other markets, and shouldn't be taken as confirmation should you reside outside the UK. Samsung in Finland and Poland have revealed that owners of the Note 2 would indeed receive the sweet-flavored update at some point. You'll have to check with the manufacturer's local subsidiary for more details.
