If you’re somehow still using a Samsung Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2 in the UK, the branch of Samsung there has just given you some bad news: the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 will not be getting Android Lollipop. That means your devices are going to be staying on the old Android KitKat build which you undoubtedly are running right now. This seems perplexing to us as other branches of Samsung, such as Poland, Finland, and Denmark, have announced that Android Lollipop will be coming to their devices, whereas Samsung UK joins Samsung Gulf as regions that won’t be getting it – you’d think one variant would translate easily to another, but what do we know.
While this news is probably disappointing to Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 owners, we can’t exactly say that we’re surprised – Samsung was aiming for 18 months of support for its flagship devices and has clearly exceeded this for at least some of its portfolio, so it was only a matter of time before its 2012 flagships started to make their way out.
