    Even though the S3 is two years old, it's still one of the most popular phones in the world and Samsung hasn't even discontinued the S3 line yet! I recently bought a GS3 because of the price (scored one on eBay for $120!) and because the specs are still pretty good. Currently the S3 is running KitKat 4.4.2. Do you think Samsung will roll out a Lollipop update for the S3, or will it sadly end with KitKat?

    At least I'm rooted so I can use CyanogenMod to flash Lollipop myself if that becomes the case.

    No, Samsung has a terrible record when it comes to getting updates out to their phones. I have a feeling based on history that the oldest Sammy phone that is going to see an update is the S4.

    It's a shame too because the S3 is very capable of running Lollipop, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. You are better off getting it done with Cyanogen Mod anyway because it will have the AOSP material ui instead of that God awful touchwhiz.
