Here we go again... After denying many mid-range devices Lollipop updates, Now, Samsung Gulf announced via its official twitter account that the Galaxy A5 (SM-A500) will NOT be getting its official Android 5.0 Lollipop update in the Gulf states only, which is more bad News for middle-east users.


The samsung Galaxy A5 is a very new device, This may also mean that the whole Galaxy A series (A3, A5 and A7) may not get updated in that region too which is a very bad news for the users in the Middle-east region.




Tweet Translation from Arabic to English:
"Welcome, We are sorry that the device you mentioned ["Galaxy A5"] won't be getting the Lollipop update, we will keep you updated, thank you."


However, this decision won't affect other Galaxy A users in other Regions as Samsung has already released the official Android 5.0.2 lollipop update for the Galaxy A3 (SM-A300) while other variants A3 (SM-A300) and A5 (SM-A500) are awaiting the same update in the upcoming few weeks.


This is not the first time that Samsung Gulf or Samsung Mobile Arabia cancels or denies a Lollipop for a mid-range device, the list is long (including Grand Prime, Core Prime, Note 8.0, Note 3 Neo and Tab 4).
