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.
Finally, after denying too many devices from the Lollipop update, Samsung Mobile Arabia has officially posted a list of the confirmed devices to get the Android 5.0 Lollipop update is in the Middle-East region, Here's the list:
