Today seems to be the day of companies deciding not to update handsets to Android 5.0 Lollipop. After HTC's shock news that it will not upgrade the barely year old HTC One Mini 2, Samsung is apparently not going to update the Galaxy Note 2. Samsung Gulf (the Persian Gulf wing of the company) said on Facebook said in no uncertain terms that the phablet handset will not be getting Android Lollipop.Sure, this is not quite as shocking as HTC's decision as the Galaxy Note 2 nearly three years old, well beyond the standard two year support period. If Samsung does not feel the need to update the device to the new full Android build then it is understandable, but we sure would be sad for G Note 2 users. Of course, this is coming from a non-central wing of Samsung so the word from Korea could be very different. It was widely thought the S Pen packing Note 2 would get Lollipop, so we hope that Samsung Gulf has got it wrong on this occasion (unlikely).
