As you probably know, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was launched back in 2013, making it almost 2-years old. The company is certainly keeping up to its promise of offering long-term software support.

India is amongst the few countries where the phablet has received the update to Lollipop and this only shows how important of a market it is for the company.
