Samsung Galaxy S II Finally Receives Android Ice Cream Sandwich Upgrade
Samsung has finally released Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) upgrade to the Galaxy S II’s around the world. According to an announcement on the official Samsung Tomorrow blog, the Korean consumer electronics giant will push upgrade first in the European countries including Poland, Hungary, Sweden, as well as in Korea today. Samsung will gradually roll out the upgrade to other markets.
The upgrade is meant for international specification, Galaxy S II (GT-I9100), so if you have any other variant of Galaxy S II, like the AT&T/T-Mobile Galaxy S II or a Sprint Epic 4G Touch, you won’t be able to upgrade to ICS just yet.
The consumer electronics giant further clarified that Android 4.0 ICS software upgrade for GALAXY Note, GALAXY S II LTE, GALAXY Tab 8.9 and 10.1 will be available soon. On top of that, if you’re an owner of Galaxy S, Samsung has not forgotten about you. Galaxy S (and its Super Clear LCD variant) including Galaxy Tab 7, Galaxy S Plus, and the Galaxy W will soon receive a new update that will bring features like Face Unlock, Snapshot, a revamped Photo Editor and more.
The consumer electronics giant has clarified that the availability and scheduling of the software update and specific models upgradable to Android 4.0 will vary by market and wireless carriers’ requirements.
