It appears that Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy Note II won’t receive an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop in the United Kingdom. Samsung Mobile UK delivered the news via a reply to a follower on Twitter.
@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
It is worth noting that Samsung UK’s decision to not update the 2013 flagship duo does not apply to all global markets. Samsung Galaxy Note II has been confirmed to receive Android Lollipop in Poland, Denmark, and Finland.
In addition to the United Kingdom, the Note II won’t receive Android Lollipop in the Gulf region. Overall, each global branch of the Korean giant appears to handle the update decision for the device differently.
I own a Galaxy S3 and I don't even have the official kitkat. I'll never buy a Samsung anymore.
Apple is seriously better than this , atleast they bother to update their low end device .....samsung u suck
In the end all markets will deny update for S3/Note 2.
