Luckily for some, this story is just a rumor for now and is subject to change. According to unconfirmed insider sources, a slew of Samsung devices will be getting the upgrade to Google's Android 5.0/Key Lime Pie, and several won't. Google's next Android 5.0 is expected to launch at Google I/O in May, and Samsung is supposedly already working on a list of devices they plan to upgrade. We will share the list below, but it comes with the caveat that it is not confirmed and could easily be subject to change without notice. Here's the scoop,

Android 5.0 is expected to come to:
  • GT-I9300 – Samsung Galaxy S III
  • GT-I9305 – Samsung Galaxy S III LTE
  • GT-I9500 – Samsung Galaxy S 4
  • GT-I9505 – Samsung Galaxy S 4 LTE
  • GT-N5100 – Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0
  • GT-N5105 – Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 LTE
  • GT-N5110 – Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Wi-Fi
  • GT-N7100 – Samsung Galaxy Note II
  • GT-N7105 – Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE
  • GT-N8000 – Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
  • GT-N8005 – Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE
  • GT-N8010 – Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Wi-Fi
The following devices will likely not get updated past Android 4.2.2
  • GT-I9080 – Samsung Galaxy Grand
  • GT-I9082 – Samsung Galaxy Grand DUOS
  • GT-I8160 – Samsung Galaxy Ace 2
  • GT-I8190 – Samsung Galaxy S III mini
  • GT-I8350 – Samsung Galaxy Beam
  • GT-I8730 – Samsung Galaxy Express
  • GT-I9070 – Samsung Galaxy S Advance
  • GT-I9100 – Samsung Galaxy S II
  • GT-I9105 – Samsung Galaxy S II Plus
  • GT-I9260 – Samsung Galaxy Premier
  • GT-N7000 – Samsung Galaxy Note
  • GT-S6310 – Samsung Galaxy Young
  • GT-S6312 – Samsung Galaxy Young DUOS
  • GT-S6810 – Samsung Galaxy Fame
  • GT-S7710 – Samsung Galaxy X Cover 2
As you can see, the most disappointing aspect of this list is that some of Samsung's most prolific devices, like the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy S II are on the "will not upgrade" list. Of course, when actually verified lists from Samsung come out, we will share them, but this supposedly comes from a reputable source. On the bright side, it looks like several exciting devices will be getting the new version of Android.
