The update list clearly reveals no Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and it is unknown why the device's name suddenly disappeared. In addition, owners of the Samsung Galaxy S3 are also asking when they will get the update according to their feedbacks on the comment boxes.
Telstra didn't comment about the mysterious disappearance of Galaxy Note 2 in the list and added more anxiety on the future of the device. However, there is a possibility that Telstra simply doesn't have any news regarding the planned software upgrade from Samsung.
