News about the update of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with Android 5.0 Lollipop

Android 5.0 Lollipop
The last May generated an intense debate about whether the Samsung Galaxy 2 Note would be updated with 5.0 Android Lollipop. The controversy generated by the information provided by different divisions of the company does not help to clarify the dilemma. However, since it has not come to appear information network that will allow us to know about the plans of the company in this respect. So far because news is foreseen. And it is that an internal source related to the manufacturer reveals that it is confirmed that there will be update with Lollipop for the second of the phablet of the Asian mark.

Update of Android terminals policy is all a choice. Although the own Google establishes a basic period of 18 months during which it is guaranteed that Nexus devices will have major upgrades, in the case of certain models and even the situation may vary, for the worse and for the better. And what can motivate a manufacturer to extend the update a model support in particular? Precisely this, that in the case of a model concrete, especially those more successful than, for its level of sales, is very widespread in the markup and to have a prominent presence. This could be the case of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which accumulated a respectable sales figure.

And it is the second phablet of the company is nearing three years on the market. Despite this situation – take into account the 18 months established by Google – manufacturer has updated the team on several occasions, from the native version that appeared in the market (Android 4.1 Jelly Bean) up to the most current version, Android 4.4.4 KitKat. However, the discomfort came to the users of the phablet earlier this year, when it began to sound with was the possibility of Samsung to abandon development and compilation of new versions of Android-based firmwares (alluding to Android 5.0 Lollipop). In fact, some of the divisions of Samsung Mobile confirmed in social networks that the model already not updated beyond KitKat.

Leaks that “confirms” the development project of Lollipop

However, practically in parallel, other divisions of the company, specifically those of Denmark and Spain, provided information indicating that Samsung was trying Lollipop on the device and that the future availability of the update was contingent upon the performance of the computer with this version of Android.

There froze the information given by the manufacturer since that has not become known novelty in this respect since last May. However, the portal SamMobile, closely linked to the current company and with important contacts around the same, has spoken again. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with 5.0 Android update has been through your profile on Twitter where you can read a message referring to which is confirmed Lollipop. However, there are no references to possible dates of release of the update OTA or details about the collection and possible performance on the hardware of the second Galaxy Note.

Do we have to pay attention to the message of SamMobile on Twitter? While the reason whereby portal has not given wider dissemination to the news through its portal header is intriguing, indeed that their predictions and seepage accumulate a very high percentage of hits and reliable information that finally ends to be confirmed. Is this a new case? Possibly, although we can hope for now only news in this regard, either a specific date in which there will be update, a possible change of plans at the last minute (cancellation of the upgrade), or in the best of cases, the filtration of a beta firmware that make the future availability of the change of version of Android for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
