Good news for all Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note users: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update will be available in the first quarter of 2012.
This is not a rumor, not a supposition, it is the real deal! Samsung announced that Samsung Galaxy Note and Samsung Galaxy S II will receive the update while other devices will soon follow.
“Samsung Electronics plan to provide the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for GALAXY devices. The platform update for GALAXY S II and GALAXY Note will start in the first quarter 2012, and other GALAXY devices will soon follow.”
Now, if they say it, it must be true! If you do not own a Galaxy S II or Galaxy Note, don’t panic! The other devices that will get the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update are the Galaxy R, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Tab 7.7 and 7.0 plus. Great way to start the year!
Samsung UK has officially announced on Twitter that the Galaxy S II will receive the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update.
As Google officially unveiled the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Android device makers have started to tell us which of the products will receive the ICS update. Of course, we also wonder when the new version of the operating system will be available for the handsets. But that’s another story!
Anyway, I bet Samsung users were pretty happy to hear that they would be among the lucky ones. However, up until now, this was an unofficial statement. But the company was prompt and confirmed that the Galaxy S II will indeed get the Android 4.0 update. The thing is they didn’t mention when it would happen just that it definitely will. All we have to do now is to see how much time we’ll have to wait for the update to be available.
