Samsung Says The Galaxy Tab Pro Won't Ever Get Lollipop Or Marshmallow

While most people are hoping their Android devices will at some point see a Marshmallow update, there are those still stuck on KitKat. For example, Samsung's Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 launched last year with Android 4.4 on board, and so far it hasn't seen any gigantic Operating System (OS) updates.

So, an owner of this tablet (who's so far been extremely patient, it has to be said) took to Twitter to ask Samsung's arm in the UK about a Lollipop or Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4.

The answer? Well, in short: no. This tablet will never see an Operating System (OS) version bump. Not to Android 5.0, not to 5.1, not to 6.0. This pretty much means support for this device has ended from Samsung's point of view. It's an fascinating development, especially considering that the not much newer Galaxy Tab S 8.4 at least got Lollipop. And that was all the way back in April. But the Tab Pro won't be so lucky.

As a final word of advice, haged in mind that this information might only be valid for tablets srecent in the UK, since it's Samsung's arm over there disseminating the poor news. Though we wouldn't hope for an Operating System (OS) update for the Tab Pro coming to any other regions either.
