We reported before that SamsungGulf has officially confirmed that the Galaxy Note 2 won't be getting the Lollipop update in the Arab Gulf states (Kuwait, UAE, Qatar... etc). Well, this doesn't affect other regions.
Today, SamsungDanmark has officially confirmed multiple times via its twitter account that the Galaxy Note 2 will get the Official Android 5.0 Lollipop update, Furthermore, the Denmark firm even confirmed that the Note 2 Danish variant with CSC code: "NEE" will get the update and NOT all Regions will get it as it vary from market to market.
@Kamil_Sabry Hi! Each market has their own updates so it can vary from market to market. Danish Note 2s (CSC code: NEE) will get Lollipop.— Samsung Danmark (@SamsungDK) May 8, 2015
In another tweet SamsungDanmark, confirmed that both Note 2 (GT-N7100) and Note 2 4G (GT-N7105) variants will get the Update but not in the same time, so the Note 2 4G users should rest assured that their devices will get updated as well same as the original variant.
What if my Region didn't get Lollipop?

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.
The Galaxy J7 (2016) just started to receive the Android security patch for the month of April in India. The OTA package is quite slim at only 25.78MB and has the build number MMB29K.J710FXXU3AQD4. Along with the 49 CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) fixes included in all Android SMR releases for the month of April, Samsung also includes 16 of its own fixes that are unique to the manufacturer's smartphones only. If you own a J7 (2016) in India, you should be prompted for the update anytime now.
The S7 and the S7 Edge has also started to receive the same Android SMR update but this report is apparently coming in from Europe instead of Asia. The OTA update includes the same fixes from Google and Samsung as the ones mentioned above. It might be a while though before you get to see the update pop up on your phone. How much you will need to wait will depend largely on your location.
Head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones.
