A pre-list reportedly obtained from Samsung reveals that the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2 will get the Android 5.0 update when it is released in the coming months. Android 5.0 or Key Lime Pie is yet to be announced, though its quite obvious that not a lot of older devices will be compatible with it. If this list turns out to be correct then only five Samsung devices will be updated to Android 5.0. These five devices include Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 2, Note 8.0 and Note 10.1.


The list also reveals that Galaxy S2 and the original Galaxy Note will received Android 4.2.2 update, though it is going to be the last update they ever get. Apart from these two devices, there are around fifteen other devices that won’t receive any updates after version 4.2.2. These include the following:

  • Galaxy Grand
  • Galaxy Grand DUOS
  • Galaxy Ace 2
  • Galaxy S III mini
  • Galaxy Beam
  • Galaxy Express
  • Galaxy S Advance
  • Galaxy S II
  • Galaxy S II Plus
  • Galaxy Premier
  • Galaxy Note
  • Galaxy Young
  • Galaxy Young DUOS
  • Galaxy Fame
  • Galaxy X Cover 2

The mid-range Android devices that Samsung released last year and in Q1 2013 will receive a value pack update, this according to the same source. This list is obviously not confirmed by the Korean manufacturer, and it remains to be seen what the final list turns out to be.
