The Galaxy Note II is more than 2 years old but it isn’t forgotten by Samsung when it comes to software updates. Based on Samsung Finland’s website, it appears that both the Galaxy Note II and last year’s Galaxy S4 will be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Other models receiving the new OS update also include Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy S5 mini, Galaxy Note II (4G version), Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 4. Surprisingly the Galaxy S5 isn’t listed with Android 5.0 coming soon considering it has started rolling out in Poland. Like any software update, the roll out times will vary depending on region and hopefully Malaysian users should be getting in within the first quarter of 2015.
The Android 5.0 Lollipop update delivers new features along with a fresh Material Design approach. Apart from that, performance is expected to be improved as Lollipop uses Android RunTime (ART) instead of the usual Dalvik runtime.
