Android 5.0 Lollipop update on Galaxy Note 2? Device will not be supported, Samsung says


It is an exciting year for the smartphone community as many companies outdo each other introducing new Android products into the marketplace.

It would be a good idea to compare two devices running the Android OS LG’s G Flex 2 and Samsung’s upcoming Note 5 Edge.

The LG G Flex 2 is a smaller version of its predecessor, Android Headlines said. While the original G Flex had a 6-inch screen, the G Flex 2 sports a 5.5-inch screen instead. It does improve on the G Flex’s display, as the G Flex 2’s screen has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and a depth of 403 pixels per inch.

The device is powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor that runs on a speed of 2.0 GHz, and backed up by 3GB of RAM. The G Flex 2 also has 32GB of onboard storage that can be expanded to 128GB.

Android Headlines also said that the LG G Flex 2 has a 13MP rear-facing camera with Laser Autofocus, Optical Image Stabilization and a Dual-Tone LED Flash. Its front facing camera has a resolution of 2.1 megapixels.

The G Flex 2 is NFC compatible, and has connectivity options of Wi-Fi, GPS, and BlueTooth. It also uses a microUSB port for charging the 3000 mAh battery and for transferring files.

The G Flex 2 runs on an Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, Android Origin reported.

While there has been no official announcement on the Galaxy Note 5 Edge’s specifications, Ecumenical News reported that the upcoming Samsung tablet will possibly have a 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display screen. In addition, the Note 5 Edge will be installed with a Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor and will have an internal storage capacity of 16GB.

Donklephant said that the Note 5 Edge will reportedly not feature the S Pen Stylus common in the Note series of gadgets.

The Galaxy Note 5 Edge will be released this autumn during the IFA 2015 event, Ecumenical News added.
