Samsung Will Update Galaxy S II And Note To 4.2.2, S III And Others To 5.0

Most phones are never updated more than once, if that. The fact that my Samsung Galaxy S II received updates from Gingerbread all the way up to Jelly Bean 4.1 made me really respect Samsung, and the fact that the newest update contained the Nature UX introduced on the Galaxy S III just made it all the better. Two major updates is further than most companies go, and just yesterday I had a discussion with a friend about how the Galaxy S II has probably reached its end of life after almost two years on the market.

But if this information is correct, the Galaxy S II and original Galaxy Note, along with many other devices, will be getting an update to Android 4.2.2. This will be their final update, but that’s some amazing support. Updates beyond two years? Truly amazing. Then there is a list of devices that will get Android 5.0, which hasn’t even been announced yet.

End at Android 4.2.2 update.

Not only is this information unofficial, but it’s also subject to change at any time. Don’t start getting excited (though it’s too late for me as an S II owner). However, we would love to know your thoughts. What do you think of Samsung updating their old flagship for so long? Leave a comment!
