While most people hope their Android devices will get someday to see a Marshmallow update, there are those still stuck on KitKat. For example, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 released last year with Android 4.4 on board, and it has not seen any big OS updates.
An owner of this device (who’s so far been 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.
But, this tablet will never see an 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 interesting 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 will not be that lucky.
As a final advice, keep in mind that this info might only be valid for tablets sold in the UK, since it’s Samsung’s arm over there disseminating the news. Thoug we wouldn’t hope for an OS update for the Tab Pro coming to any other regions either.
