Samsung Galaxy Note 2 might be an old device but the phone still looks good. That could probably be the reason why the device is now getting Android 5.0 Lollipop update.
Samsung has finally confirmed that the Android 5.0 Lollipop update will arrive on the Galaxy Note 2. The information comes via Samsung Poland (via SamMobile), though the user handling the company's Twitter account did not share any details on the timings. This likely means that the roll out is several days away at best.
In other words, an Android 5.0 Lollipop release for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is just around the corner. The confirmation is important because the Galaxy Note 2 is one of the bestselling smartphone.
It's still not clear if this will be the last update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Google recommends just 18 months of software support though Samsung typically offers 24 months of support for its flagship devices. So, the Note 2, which recently turned two, could be the oldest Samsung smartphone to get the Android 5.0 Lollipop update.
