Europe: Android 4.0 ICS update for Samsung Galaxy S II rolling-out now. Original Galaxy S i9000 will get a Gingerbread firmware upgrade
It’s finally happening: Samsung has officially announced that the Galaxy S II is getting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich starting today in some European markets (including Sweden, Poland, and Hungary), as well as in South Korea (yeah, we told you about Korea yesterday).
The ICS update will be gradually rolled-out to other unspecified markets this month. As for the Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1, these will obviously also get the latest version of Android (as previously announced), but there’s no specific timeframe for this – Samsung only says it will happen “soon.”
Samsung didn’t forget its older devices, either, namely the original Galaxy S i9000, the Galaxy S SCL (Super Clear LCD), Galaxy S Plus, Galaxy Tab P1000, and Galaxy W. While these aren’t getting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, they will receive Gingerbread firmware upgrades that include ICS-like features (Face Unlock, Photo Editor, Snapshot and others). Samsung says the firmware upgrades will be available starting the end of March.
