No Android Lollipop for the UK Samsung Galaxy S3 or Note 2

Galaxy Note 2

Samsung has issued many an Android Lollipop update this year, but Samsung UK has stated that the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 smartphones in the UK will remain absent from the update list.

The news was issued via the Samsung Mobile UK’s Twitter account, but no reason has been given for the lack of an update. This news is even more curious as a Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 2 has already been confirmed for release in Poland, Denmark and Finland. Although last month Samsung Gulf announced that it won’t be releasing Lollipop for the Note 2.

It appears that regional branches have their own control over updates, at least when it comes to some of Samsung’s older handsets.

Back in late June, Samsung UK also declared that the Galaxy Ace 4 would be left out from any Lollipop updates. However, this was expected to have something to do with incompatible hardware.

Samsung was never likely to be able to bring Lollipop to all of its smartphones. Fortunately with updates scheduled for other regions, there’s always the possibility that custom ROMs could bring Samsung’s Android Lollipop to the UK Galaxy Note 2 and S3.
