We have posted few days ago that SamsungSpain and SamsungDenmark has confirmed the Galaxy Note 2 official Android 5.0 Lollipop Update, few days back SamsungGulf denied it on twitter... so which is right ?
Today, SamsungGulf has confirmed and clarified on its official twitter account that the Middle-eastern variant of the Galaxy Note 2 will NOT be getting Android 5.0 Lollipop update in the Arab Gulf Region (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, UAE.. etc). Other regions won't be affected by this.
@KamilSabry أهلاً بك ، نأسف لن يتم إصدار تحديث Lollipop للجهاز Note 2 في دول الخليج شكراً لك— Samsung Gulf (@SamsungGulf) May 6, 2015
Tweet Translation from Arabic to English:
"Welcome, we will not be issuing the Lollipop update for the Note 2 devices in the Gulf States, thank you"
This means that not all regions will get the Note 2 Lollipop 5.0 update, this is bad news for Galaxy Note 2 users in the Middle-east. Stay tuned and we will keep you updated with the latest news on this.
The list of the Samsung devices that won't be getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update in the Gulf states is getting ridiculously long...
SamsungGulf just added a new device to that list, as it announced via its official twitter account that the Galaxy E7 won't be getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, which also means that the Galaxy E5 will not get the update too.
@morewickedjared Hi, unfortunately the device you have mentioned wont get the Lollipop update. We will keep you posted for any updates— Samsung Gulf (@SamsungGulf) May 7, 2015
The Arabian firm didn't give any reason regarding this cancellation. However, this decision will only affect the users in the Gulf states. The Galaxy E7 and E5 may get updated in the other markets.
