Samsung has been reasonably quick at bringing Android Lollipop to the Galaxy Note 3 and Note 4 and also looks set to bring the update to its two year old Galaxy Note 2, according to a tweet from Samsung Poland.

When asked about a leaked screenshot of the Note 2 running Android 5.0, Samsung Poland confirmed that the Galaxy Note 2 would indeed be receiving the update. However, no other information about dates or regional rollouts was given, so there could be a bit of a wait, if the update doesn’t fall through beforehand.

@immichal Tak, nasz rzecznik potwierdził dziś podczas #GZR, że GALAXY Note 2 otrzyma aktualizację. Nie mamy jednak dodatkowych informacji.

Samsung has already managed to start pushing out Lollipop updates for the Galaxy S5, S4, S4 LTE-A, Note 3 and the Note 4. Given that Samsung doesn’t typically offer updates for handsets older than 18 months, it is a bit of a surprise to see the latest Android OS set for release on the Note 2.

Hopefully this is a sign that Samsung is really ramping up support for its older handsets, a practice that will hopefully catch on with other OEMs too.
