The comparatively older Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which has not received Google's Android 5.0 (Lollipop) operating system yet, might never receive the firmware upgrading software. So, users will have to stay put on the Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS which was also seeded not too long ago, or install unofficial custom ROMs to enjoy Lollipop.
Originally, Samsung's Galaxy Note 2 ran the now legacy and outdated Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system, out of the box.
Now, a SamMobile report based on a Facebook posting by Samsung Gulf, estimates that Samsung's Galaxy Note 2 will not get the Lollipop update.
The Facebook post quoted by SamMobile clearly displays Samsung Gulf answering a query by a Galaxy Note 2 user regarding the rollout of Android 5.0.
"The Lollipop update won't be released on the Note 2. Have a great day," states Samsung Gulf, in its reply to the Galaxy Note 2 user.
The latest report adds meat to earlier apprehensions regarding the rollout of Android 5.0 to Samsung's Galaxy Note 2 smartphones across the world.
Also, it seems that the only way for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 users to enjoy Android 5.0, is through unofficial custom ROMs. Existing Galaxy Note 2 users can click here to update their smartphones with CyanogenMod 12.1 unofficial ROM.
