Samsung skipping Lollipop and Marshmallow updates for the Galaxy Tab Pro series

Galaxy Tab Pro

Just as we heard about the #Samsung #GalaxyTabPro 8.4 getting Android 6.0 via CyanogenMod 13, Samsung has now officially confirmed that the series will not be updated to Android Lollipop or Marshmallow. The tablets were launched in February 2014 and they run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.

Since then, the devices haven’t been updated to Lollipop, which is over a year old now. This rules out the possibility of the Marshmallow update as well, leaving the users high and dry. For now, the only ray of hope for global customers is that the bad news was offered by Samsung UK’s Twitter page, so the news might only be limited to the tablets in the UK.

In any case, we urge you to not get your hopes up as far as the update is concerned. Samsung is currently taking its time for update rollouts with a majority of its devices getting the Marshmallow update on or after January 2016.

Do you own a Galaxy Tab Pro series device? What do you make of this news?

  1. It sux! We pay more money for them Tab Pro tablets than the Nexus ones yet we get the shaft. I own both the Nexus 7 and the Samsung Tab 8.4, so I know what I’m talking about. I will never buy a Samsung tablet again. Just a genuine Google product.
