A new report citing reputable information from an insider indicates that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 may not be receiving an update to the Android 5.0 operating system.

Samsung has been very busy recently. In addition to releasing its new flagship smartphone duo, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, it has also been feverishly releasing operating system updates in conjunction with its affiliated carriers. The Samsung Galaxy S5, S4, Galaxy S5 Sport, Galaxy S5 Active and Galaxy Alpha have already received Android 5.0 Lollipop updates in many regions on various carriers.

The company's Galaxy Note phablet series has also received Lollipop updates on the latest editions, the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge. Their predecessor, the Galaxy Note 3, has also gotten the update.

When Android 5.0 Lollipop was announced, it was unclear whether the aging former flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 2, would be receiving an update. However, Nordic European regional arms of Samsung recently confirmed the update to the delight of Note 2 owners around the world.

Now, however, it appears that the update is once again up in the air as a report from an insider indicates that no Lollipop build is currently being developed for the Note 2. That doesn't mean that one will not be developed eventually, but it calls into question the earlier confirmation from the regional arms of Samsung that the Note 2 would be receiving Lollipop. Regional arms have put out wrong information in the past, so now the eventual emergence of a Note 2 update is unclear.

Samsung is reportedly working hard on the Galaxy Note 5, which has an expected September 2015 launch date, and would render the Note 2 three generations old, which is a long time in smartphone years. Anxious Note 2 users will just have to continue playing the waiting game for now, although users with the international LTE version can upgrade now to 5.1 at their own risk, using unofficial software developed via the Android Open Source Project.
