Galaxy Note 2 Android update: latest news

Authored by: Loie Favre — 2 months ago

Despite the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Android Lollipop update having been ruled out by Samsung UK some time ago, there are still rumors that it will happen one day. At this point, the Galaxy Note 2 almost certainly will not receive the upgrade to Android Lollipop or Marshmallow, but does that mean all is lost? Find out the latest Galaxy Note 2 Android update news below.

Galaxy Note 2 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will almost certainly not get an official Android Marshmallow update. However, a custom ROM may become available in the near future, to provide features like the vertical scrolling app drawer and perhaps the new, white notification shade from the TouchWiz UI (which you can see in this leaked Android Marshmallow build for the Galaxy Note 5). 

We will update this page if and when we see such a ROM pop up online. 

Galaxy Note 2 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update

Though there is no official Android Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 2, you can flash the CyanogenMod 12.1 ROM for the N7100 variant. This ROM is based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, so if you're looking for a relatively simple way to extend the lifespan of your Note 2, this could be the way to do it.

It's a stable build, and most, if not all, of the main features work. Head over to XDA Developers to learn more. 

Are you desperate to upgrade your Galaxy Note 2? Or are you still happy with Android KitKat? Let us know in the comments below. 

Loie Favre found her way to her present passion for Android and smartphone technology after experiencing an epiphany when she held her Galaxy Note 2. 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.

  • This is one reason I am no longer on Android. Buying Samsung is basically flushing money down the toilet!

  • Yeah.. I am eagerly desperate to get Lollipop on my Galaxy Note 2.. it' s not that i couldn't buy new phones.. but i like this phone very much and if Samsung will release Android M for my phone then also i am willing to upgrade on that too. So please for the sake of Galaxy Note II lovers upgrade the firmware to lollipop 5.1.1 instead. Thank you very much.

  • I have been a loyal and long time Samsung customer, I own two Galaxy Note2'S. One is mine and the other was a gift for my mother.. I would very much like to receive the Lollipop update for these devices because I've had issues with them as of late.. if there isn't going to be an update for them I will change carriers and devices .. that's how upset this issue has made me...
