Few months ago, SamsungUK has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo (SM-N750) will get the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, However, in these past few months we didn't see any Lollipop firmware entering the testing or development process so far.
Now, SamsungUK is still confirming that the Note 3 Neo is indeed getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update as soon as it is ready... which will take a long time since the firmware has NOT entered the "In-Development" stage yet.
@Abhishek5990400 The Note 3 Neo will be receiving the Lollipop update. As soon as it's ready, we'll be sure to let you know! ^ES

It's not clear whether the device will receive an Android 5.0.2 or 5.1.1 firmware build, we will keep you updated regarding this matter so stay tuned and keep your eyes on the official Samsung Updates Page.
We have already reported before that Samsung has confirmed the Android Lollipop update for the Galaxy S5 mini (SM-G800) on its website, but until now the update hasn't been released for this variant yet.
Today, SamsungUK has confirmed via its official twitter account that Galaxy S5 mini Lollipop update is "Coming Soon".
@kristoffera90 Lollipop is coming soon to the S5 Mini, Kris. We'll let you know as soon as we can.

However, we still have no confirmation whether the upcoming update will pack Android build 5.0.2 or build 5.1.1 release, you can check the latest status of the S5 mini update on Samsung Official Updates Page. Stay tuned for more info!
Samsung has released the official Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Update for the Galaxy E5 (SM-E500) mid-range device just few weeks ago already and it's available in India and Russia. Now, it's his big brother's turn, the Galaxy E7 (SM-E700). The update packs lots of performance improvements, bug fixes and many new features for the E family.
However, SamsungUK has confirmed via its official account that the Galaxy E7 WILL NOT get updated to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Even Though that both devices (E5 and E7) packs very similar specs.
@benediktus_snd We don’t like disappointing our customers, but have had it confirmed that the E7 is not going to move to Lollipop.

There was no reason mentioned but we reached out for the company for an explanation and they replied that only the UK region E7 users will not get the lollipop update without clarifying the reason. So, this only applied to the UK region and carriers only.
Stay tuned for more info or changes on this!
