Galaxy Note 2 Android 5.0 Lollipop update: has it been cancelled?

Authored by: Loie Favre — 4 months ago

Android 5.0 Lollipop might not make its way to the Galaxy Note 2 at all, the latest speculation suggests. Samsung Poland confirmed that Lollipop would arrive on the Note 2 in February. However, the latest information suggests that this is not the case any more. Find out all of the latest Galaxy Note 2 Android update news below.  

Update, 05/05/2015: Samsung Spain has now Tweeted to say that Lollipop will arrive to the Note 2 (at least in Spain). At this point we don't know what to believe -- we've reached out to Samsung for comment and will update this story when we learn more. Head below for the original story.

Samsung Poland confirmed that the Galaxy Note 2 would receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, despite that the device is more than two years old. This was several months ago, and now SamMobile is speculating that the update won't arrive after all.

The Samsung news site highlighted that no Lollipop builds for the Note 2 have landed on Samsung's servers -- something which is likely to have happened if the update was in progress -- and also that Samsung Gulf has confirmed that it won't be released in a Facebook conversation.

We were skeptical about the initial Twitter comment from Samsung Poland, given that we were still yet to hear confirmation from any other source, and so we must be equally critical of Samsung Gulf's comments. That being said, if you were to ask us right now whether we expect the Galaxy Note 2 Android Lollipop update to be released, the answer would likely be no.  

We'll update the list below if and when the Note 2 update hits the US. For now, it's looking bare.

From that point onwards, you can find her with her nose buried in countless Android apps and different smartphone models, and thanking her lucky stars that she gets to work at something she loves.
