Sprint Samsung Epic 4G Touch Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update now rolling out too

Sprint’s HTC Evo 3D isn’t the only smartphone to be receiving an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich these days. It’s apparently been joined by the Samsung Epic 4G Touch, Sprint’s version of the Galaxy S II from last year.

According to reports filed with Phandroid, the rollout of this update is ongoing. It will come over-the-air, and your Epic handset will notify you when it’s time. After updating, you’ll be running Android 4.0.4 and software version FF18.

Of course, this update brings along the many improvements that Google has added to Android under the hood for the ICS release, alongside Samsung’s love-it-or-hate-it TouchWiz UI overlay atop. So most of the aesthetic changes in ICS won’t be very noticeable, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t update. After all, not even ICS is the latest version of Android anymore.

Speaking of that, you probably should not get your hopes up about the Epic 4G Touch receiving an update to Jelly Bean.
