Users Asked to be Careful With All Galaxy Note Devices After Galaxy Note 2 Bursts Into Flames on Flight in India
Samsung UK today announced through Twitter that it will not be updating the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Up until now, we have heard conflicting reports about Samsung updating the Galaxy Note 2 to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
According to a page on Samsung’s Finland website, the Korean giant plans on updating quite a few of its older devices to Android 5.0 Lollipop, including the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S4.
Samsung has already updated devices like the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 to the latest and greatest version of Android, and now the company seems to have finally turned its attention to its 2012 flagships. According to SamMobile, the Android 4.4 KitKat update has begun rolling out to the international variant of the Galaxy Note 2 in France, via Samsung’s desktop PC suite Kies.
Samsung has so far been peculiarly quiet about how many Galaxy devices will get the impending Android 4.4 KitKat update and when, even with the OTA already rolling out to the Note 3. But the ominous silence is now behind us, as a list of 14, that’s right, 14 smartphones and tablets due for a chocolaty software bump has gone official.
Verizon’s Galaxy Note 2 update brings the latest version of Jelly Bean and Galaxy Gear compatibility
A couple of days ago, the Verizon’s Galaxy S3 started receiving its Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update. Joining it today is its bigger brother, the Galaxy Note 2. The Sprint and T-Mobile variant of the Note 2 have already received their fair share of Jelly Bean love, with the Verizon variant joining them today.
While Google may have released Android 4.4 KitKat, some OEMs are yet to update their device to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Samsung is one such company, busy working on the Jelly Bean update for the Note 2.
Samsung has just sent out a press release that confirms what a leaked update schedule suggested – an update for its “iconic Galaxy smartphones” with Galaxy Gear support in the coming weeks.
It is no secret that Samsung’s recently released smart watch – the Galaxy Gear – was a half-hearted product from the company. Apart from the poor battery life and limited functionality, the device suffers from major compatibility issues.
