Samsung Denmark says Samsung Galaxy Note II won't receive Android 5.0 in all markets

Samsung Denmark says Samsung Galaxy Note II won't receive Android 5.0 in all markets
The Denmark subsidiary of Samsung is the latest regional arm of the manufacturer to tweet about the Lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy Note II. Earlier this week, Samsung Gulf sent out a message from its Twitter account saying that the phablet would not be receiving the Android 5.0 update. That was countered by a tweet from Samsung Spain that said the Galaxy Note II would receive the update as long as there were no problems with it during the updating process.

Samsung Denmark has sent out multiple tweets stating that both the Samsung Galaxy Note II and Samsung Galaxy Note II 4G will be receiving Android 5.0 in its area. The Danish version of the update will have the CSC code of NEE. Both the Galaxy Note II (GT-N7100) and Galaxy Note II 4G (GT-N7105) will receive this update, but not at the same time.

As far as other countries are concerned, Samsung Denmark says that every region has its own policies on updates. This means that the decision on whether the Galaxy Note II will be updated varies from market to market. So far, it would appear that those in the Persian Gulf are the only ones being shut out from receiving Android 5.0 for their Galaxy Note II.

Thanks for the tip!

In my opinion Sony is not bad, they deliver them LATE, that is true.. but most of the time they update old devices (with the famous exception of the SP)... But if you look back they even brought Ice Cream Sandwich to the whole 2011 Sony Ericsson line... it was an optional update but it was possible. Right now they promised L to the whole Z line which is also great, considering that the Xperia Z is from early 2013... AND THEY ARE ALSO UPDATING NON-Z devices (which is logical, otherwise there will be blood) Ironically I am quite happy with my Z3 Compact on KitKat and I have that little Android L notification being ignored for the time being... I don't want to deal with possible resets, data restore, reinstalls, etc. in the meantime.

Note II is year 2012 product, it is not in the targeted update list anymore. Xperia Z is year 2013 product, that why it still under targeted update list product.

I am not criticising Samsung, in fact they do better than the rest when it comes to updates, but people tend to rant about other things they ignore

Rather one of the best. Note 2 got kitkat, no other phone from 2012 received it apart from the nexus line. I'm sure I'll be getting lollipop in my country cause it's already been officially confirmed, but it will take them a lot of time. Maybe in June?

Galaxy S3 also got kitkat (-: 4.4.2 Sprint variant.

No, they are pretty ahead of the pack but upgrade your note may leave a bad taste in your mouth - it may slow down to a crawl with TouchWiz on lollipop. Of it do get a taste of lollipop, it'll probably be the last time it would and you don't want to be left with a bug infested update, that's assuming you're not into rooting and flashing.

LOL a lot of companies are really bad in giving updates but Google is the one that shoulfd be blamed.

1. They don't hold any controlling stakes in all of Android's device OEMs, therefore no control over each' biz plans = how many phones/tablets to be produced per annum. 2. And Google certainly have 0 sway over manufacturers' skin/UI, apps and background services. Above all, how most OEMs leverage on their R&D for both software and firmware at what rollout timings definitely are not Google's prerogative due to the above mentioned.

Actually, every OEM takes time to update their phones. Also, the Note II is a pretty old device now. Might consider upgrading.

Note 2 arent suppose to get Lollipop at all. Its a big surprise the phone still get new android version update. So in which way is Samsung the worst company?
