Samsung Galaxy Note Reaching EOL – Jelly Bean Still Coming Though

by Mihai Matei on April 16, 2013


The Samsung Galaxy Note is quite an iconic device, and as such, we must give credit where is due. The original Note has pretty much established the foundation of a successful line of so called “phablets”, a concept that seemed rather idiotic at first. Now the Note 2 is one of the most successful Android smartphones out there, the mid-range Galaxy Mega series is getting ready for launch and the inevitable Galaxy Note 3 might wow us more than its predecessors, if rumors regarding its premium build and Exynos 5 Octa CPU are going to become a reality.

But, getting back to our good old Galaxy Note, it seems that after an eventful journey, the handset is closing in on its EOL (end-of-life). More details after the break.

Samsung Galaxy Note – EOL

According to a recent Rogers document that popped-up on the blogosphere, the carrier in question has taken the Note off  of its shelves and moved it in the “end-of-life” bin. In other words, the Note is not going to be retailed by Rogers any longer, as the carrier is making room for newer smartphones to come and try their luck on the market.


But, if you are a Note owner and you’re worried about the lack of future updates then you need to relax. Simply because some (pretty soon, all of them) carriers are considering the Note to have reached EOL, it doesn’t mean Samsung will discontinue supporting the device in terms of software updates.

Rumor has it that the manufacturer will launch Android 4.2.2 in the future, and then, well … it’s pretty much end of the line for the OG Note, for good.

It had a good run, but everything comes to an end sooner or later.

Thanks Mobile Syrup for the heads-up regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note reaching EOL.
