Updates to 2011's Galaxy S2 and 5.3-inch Galaxy Note will stop with Android 4.2.2, SamMobile reports, meaning those two popular mobiles may not be enjoying all the treats found within Google's next version of Android, rumoured to be called 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
It's good news that those fresher phones are in line for spangly new updates, but -- if these rumours turn out to be true -- it would be sad to see the Galaxy S2 stop receiving new software, and bad news for the millions of people who own the once-mighty 4.3-inch smart phone.
It's common for phone makers to stop updating their devices after a while, as it takes time and effort to wrap a new version of Android around manufacturer-specific interfaces like Samsung's TouchWiz, or HTC's Sense.
Usually older, slower components are blamed for a lack of new software, though a video from last August showing Android Jelly Bean running on the first ever Android phone demonstrates that older mobiles can often handle new updates with aplomb.
Is it time to retire the Galaxy S2? Or should Samsung treat its famous phone to another round of Android updates? Let me know your thoughts in the comments, or on our Facebook wall.
