gGadget > ICS Update Possibly Headed to Galaxy S II on March 1
Just yesterday, we reported that the highly anticipated ICS update would be coming to select HTC phones. Today there’s news that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS may be coming to the Samsung Galaxy S II on March 1. This would mean that Galaxy S II owners would get a taste of Android’s newest OS a few weeks before HTC owners. Since the Galaxy S II is one of Samsung’s most popular and technologically advanced phones, it makes sense that the Ice Cream Sandwich update is on the horizon. Before today, we only had a vague idea of when Samsung might get the ball rolling.
This rumor about a possible Android 4.0 update on March 1 originated on the Twitter page of Eldar Murtazin, a well-known and controversial tech insider. Samsung has not made any official announcements confirming or disproving the early March update. On December 20, Samsung publicly announced that the Galaxy S II would receive access to the Android 4.0 OS sometime in the first quarter of 2012. Samsung also publicly stated that the Galaxy Note tablet would receive the update in the first quarter.
If there’s truth to Eldar Murtazin’s tweet, Samsung Galaxy S II owners are just a few weeks away from Ice Cream Sandwich!
