Samsung U.K.: No Lollipop for Samsung Galaxy Note II or Samsung Galaxy S III

Samsung U.K.: No Lollipop for Samsung Galaxy Note II or Samsung Galaxy S III
In a series of tweets sent out by Samsung U.K., the manufacturer said that the Android 5.0 update will not be coming to the Samsung Galaxy Note II or the Samsung Galaxy S III (3G only model, GT-I9300). The tweets did not list any reasons why Android 5.0 cannot be installed on the two models.

Back in May, Samsung Gulf also sent out a tweet stating that in its region, the Galaxy Note II would end up stuck at Android 4.4. The tweet came from the division of Samsung that covers device sales in the Persian Gulf. Besides the Galaxy Note II, the Samsung Galaxy S III (again, the 3G only model) will also be passed over for Android 5.0 by Samsung Gulf.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is powered by an Exynos 4412 SoC featuring a quad-core 1.6GHz CPU and the Mali-400 MP 4 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside. The Samsung Galaxy S III features the same chipset with the clock speed of the quad-core CPU reduced to 1.4GHz. 1GB of RAM is included.

Obviously, Samsung is leaving the decision whether to update a particular handset up to each region. For example, both Samsung Finland and Samsung Poland have said that they will be updating the Samsung Galaxy Note II in their respective region.
