XDA-Devs have manged to shoehorn Android 10 on these Samsung flagships from way back when Android phones were still flagships when they could hit the 480p display and dual-core processor mark.That's right, the enterprising folks over at
That happened with the Android 10-based LineageOS 17.1, albeit still as an experimental phase, akin to what developers were doing with the immortal HTC HD2 for years on end. The Note 3's Android 10 edition even has its Radio Interface Layer updated, so you can use it as a phone, too.
While the S II enjoys no such luck on its Android 10 build, sitting pretty mainly as a proof of concept, you can finally brag about your 8-year-old phone getting the latest when your iPhone-laden friends boast with their five years of continuous iOS updates. Bazinga!
