Is this device getting Android 12. Note photo taken from official Samsung members app. It states July. But 4 months have passed since. December would be the last possible month they could update it. All other devices have gotten Android 12 or 13.
Actually, December is indeed the last month they could honor their promise to update this phone. See come January 2023 the device will be 2 years old. Officially outside the support timeline for updating it. Then they can drop the phone without giving a single thing. That is a fact. As stated in their own update policies. They can just say 'It's too old', or some other nonsense, and we will just have to accept it. Because no one asked, they just sat accepting that Samsung will keep the promise they made. But if you look, they are busy updating old J models, the S6 and other old and ancient models. Don't you think they should update the models from 2019 and up first? After all those were the ones that had priority? Then the others that are outside that range. Look for the A02 on the official site, when you finally find it (buried on the site). Tell me they intend to update it.
So let me get this right. The A03, A03S, A02S,A01,S6, and quite a few J models and the rest of the device line ups that came before and after get Android 12, and still Samsung hasn't bothered wirh the A02. Something is fundamentally wrong. Just to be constantly passed over.
Ok so Samsung finally took down the Android 12 update list on the official members app. Which means they have updated every device or have started updating every device that they promised to Android 12. Except the Galaxy A02 SM-A022F/G/M. Which means all us owners of the device are stuck on Android 11. I just wish I had known this was how I was going to be treated by Samsung in the first place. I would have bought the A02S or A12 instead. But this is not the first time Samsung has done this. They have made claims of 2 updates before. This time was the last time for me actually 3rd time to be precise. I am just tired of being played by Samsung. Every few years they make the very same promise to sell a few extra devices. Then dump the customer. Plus the worst is the fact that an older A01 got Android 12. While my newer better A02 is destined for the trash heap. Just like Samsungs' name and reputation if they keep treating the customer like this.
Well 10 days to go before years end. No Android 12 update for the A02. No update in sight. Cryptic messages from Samsung. I hate to say this but I told you so. Samsung is nothing but bold faced liars. All they did was run a deceiving advertising campaign. Then lied to every A02 owner about an update that they never were going to give for over a year. Most A02 owners bought into it, I was not misguided, they have lied before and will continue to lie.
