Samsung Announces Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Upgrade for Galaxy Devices

Samsung has officially announced the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade schedule for its range of Galaxy devices. Today, it stated in a press release that it will upgrade the Samsung Galaxy S 2 and the Galaxy Note to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in Q1 2012, and will upgrade other Galaxy Devices after that.

It also released a list of Galaxy devices which will be eligible for Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades:

“The ICS-upgradable devices are the GALAXY S II, GALAXY S II LTE, GALAXY Note, GALAXY R, GALAXY Tab 10.1, GALAXY Tab 8.9, GALAXY Tab 7.7, and GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus.”

Samsung will be announcing the schedules for each upgradeable model separately. The update availability may vary depending on market and carrier requirements.

Currently, only the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus S support Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich officially. Developers are working to bring ICS to most smartphones unofficially, but most phones don’t have a stable ICS build yet.

Being the best Android smartphone of 2011, the Samsung Galaxy S 2 was expected to be one of the first devices to receive the ICS upgrade.

Samsung UK had already announced an ICS upgrade for the Galaxy S 2 on Twitter, but today it announced it officially.

Stay tuned for further updates, we will let you know as soon as we receive more information regarding the ICS roll-out.
