As of now, Samsung is the only smartphone manufacturer who can boast that one of their handsets feature Android’s latest OS version i.e. Ice Cream Sandwich. Samsung and Google announced the Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich alongside each other in the latter half of October. Since the announcement of Google’s latest OS, many manufacturers are trying to get the new update rolled out on to their handsets as well. But as of today, Samsung is the only manufacturer who has the official build running. In what seems like a push to further cement themselves as the leading Android manufacturers, Samsung has announced that the Galaxy S II is also geared up to receive Ice Cream Sandwich update.
Android 4.0 coming to Samsung Galaxy S II
According to a post by Samsung UK on Twitter, the smartphone manufacturer says - Hi, good news - the Galaxy S II will be receiving ICS, but there are no dates confirmed as yet. We will keep you posted. It is no surprise that the Galaxy S II will receive an upgrade considering its high-end specifications. Even though this is Samsung UK that has confirmed that the handset will receive the update, it is expected that other countries that sell the Galaxy S II would also be getting the update, but as the post states, there are no specific dates set just yet, but perhaps Christams might just come early for S II users. You never can tell. Stay tuned to this space for more news on the Galaxy S II update to ICS.
