Is Android 4.2.2 the end of the line for the Samsung Galaxy S II and Samsung GALAXY Note?

Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy S III LTE (GT-I9300, GT-I9305). No surprise here. Also not a surprise is the inclusion of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE (GT-I9500, GT-I9505). Three variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (GT-N5100) are in line to receive Key Lime Pie including the LTE and Wi-Fi model (GT-N5105, GT-N5110). Also on the list is the Samsung GALAXY Note II (GT-N7100) and the Samsung GALAXY Note II LTE (GT-N7105). Lastly, Android 5.0 is supposedly coming to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Wi-Fi (GT-N8000, GT-N8005, GT-N8010).
Those devices that will be coming to the end of the line with Android 4.2.2 include the Samsung Galaxy S II and Samsung Galaxy S II Plus (GT-I9100, GT-I9105), Samsung Galaxy Grand and Samsung Galaxy Grand DUOS (GT-I9080, GT-I9082), Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 (GT-I8160), Samsung Galaxy S III mini, (GT-I8190), Samsung Galaxy Beam (GT-I8350), Samsung Galaxy Express (GT-I8730), Samsung GALAXY S Advance (GT-I9070), Samsung Galaxy Premier (GT-I9260), Samsung GALAXY Note (GT-N7000), Samsung Galaxy Young and Samsung Galaxy Young DUOS (GT-S6310 and GT-S6312), Samsung Galaxy Fame (GT-S6810) and the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 (GT-S7710).
Keep in mind that this is a leaked pre-list and is not written in stone. Stranger things have happened than seeing the Samsung Galaxy S II get a last second reprieve.
which phone with a custom ui has come this far officially?

None. Samsung is killing it right now. The S2 & Note will end up going from 2.3 to 4.0 to 4.1 to 4.2. There have been Nexus devices that haven't seen that many updates. I expect the S3 & Note 2 will see the same number of updates or more. Kudos to Samsung.

If 4.2.2 is the end of the line it is already pretty damn good! Think about, 2.3 to 4.0 to 4.1 to 4.2 that's 3 major firmware updates, i will have to take my hat off to Samsung because that is what i call support. Good job Samsung. From a supposedly HTC fanboy according to some trolls.

And yet the Xperia S is still stuck at 4.0.4 while the 4.1 upgrade is nowhere to be seen. Gotta admit, Sammy is the best when it comes down to updates.

The North American version of the OG Note still is on 4.0.4 wich it should have shipped with when it was released there is no sign of it getting updated to JB any time soon so Samsung really dropped the ball on that one.

Sorry to bust your bubble @ACCTDADDY, but if your Note haven't received updates... It's not Samsung's fault, it's your carrier that's holding things up! That's the only fear i have about leaving Europe is the "carrier" delays on updates.

Well considering that most people buy their phones on 24 month plans, most people would have bought the galaxy s2, 2 years ago and now most of them would probably be jumping to the galaxy s4. I dont really see much point in continuing to update the phones because the galaxy s2 will have less users in the coming months

I cannot wait to get all the features on the Galaxy S4 on my galaxy note 2. The galaxy note 3 will be the best phone this year.
