Samsung has reportedly confirmed that mid-range phablet Galaxy Note 3 Neo would get the Android 5.0 Lollipop update in 2015.

French arm of Samsung confirmed the news via Twitter. A user going by the moniker, Badreddine Teffahi (@barteffahioff), without expecting any reply simply posted a question on Samsung France's Twitter wall whether his phone Galaxy Note 3 Neo would get Android Lollipop or not.

To that, Samsung France replied in affirmative that Note 3 Neo will indeed get the update later this year.

This is really a pleasant surprise to many, as Samsung or any other Android OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) partners for that matter usually focus on flagship devices, never usually provide updates to mid-range handsets.

This is a welcome move by Samsung. To remind people, Samsung during the Galaxy S6 unveiling, company executives had said that they listen to their loyal consumers to build brand-loyalty. In that order, Samsung brought positive changes in the sixth generation device like encasing airplane-grade metallic cover, simplified TouchWiz UI and it has also given option to remove almost all pre-loaded apps in the phone. Now, the company announcing that 2013 based model Note 3 Neo to get Lollipop update, will certainly cheer loyal fans also sway in more consumers into its fold.
