Friends with the Android 4.4 KitKat-based Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 who were hoping to get another treat to taste in the near future will be saddened to learn that they’ll be stuck on that firmware forever. Samsung UK has announced, via a post on Twitter, that last year’s Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 will not be updated past Android 4.4 KitKat.
When a Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 owner contacted Samsung through their official Twitter account in the UK regarding an update to Lollipop or Marshmallow for this particular tablet, he got this response: “We really don’t like bringing you news you don’t want to hear, but the TabPRO 8.4 will not be getting Lollipop”.
With that said, we are interested in hearing your reactions. Has Samsung created an unfortunate new precedent by terminating support so soon after release? Or was the TabPRO 8.4 overshadowed by the Tab S 8.4 that was announced shortly after? Leave us your comments below and let us know!
