No Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy Note II? Samsung Gulf believes so
While the claim leaves little room for interpretation, we should mention that it's not clear whether Samsung Gulf is referring to the version of the device that was sold locally or one of the international versions of the device (as a reminder, the Note II was available in both an LTE version and a 3G-only one).
We reached out to Samsung Gulf for further details, but we had received no answer at the time of writing. Thus, we'd take this statement with a grain of salt. Hopefully, the Note II won't become yet another popular Samsung device from the old days that won't receive the freshest Android variation - the 3G-only Samsung Galaxy S III model, for example, didn't receive Android 4.4.x KitKat.
Fortunately, you can always resort to custom Android ROMs.
