After rolling out Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates for all its top-tier devices, Samsung has turned its attention to its mid-range and forgotten devices. Starting from last week, Samsung has started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy R.
Yes, Samsung did launch a handset named Galaxy R in certain markets of the world. The R looked similar to the Galaxy S2, but packed in a slightly smaller 4.2-inch SLCD screen, a Tegra 2 processor and 1GB of RAM. As of now, the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy R is being rolled out in Korea, but should soon be available in other regions including India.
The Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy R will bring with it performance and stability improvements, updated UI, Face Unlock, better speech recognition, inbuilt data monitoring tool, usability improvements, updated Google apps and much more.
The Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy R is not available via OTA. Instead, users will need to make use of Samsung’s KIES software to install the ICS update on their handset.
