It seems that the plucky little Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 will be receiving a healthy serving of Android Ice Cream Sandwich. The successor to one of the most popular affordable Android devices around, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, (which became available on Three today), is set to take the step up to ICS in the near future.
SammyHub picked up a video ad highlighting the key features of the Ace 2 and the video references that the phone will be upgradable to ICS. Of course there’s no time or date to pair with this information so how long users will have to wait is uncertain.
As SammyHub points out, the hardware underpinnings of the Ace 2 also feature in the Samsung Galaxy Beam and Samsung Galaxy S Advance, so although there’s no official word on ICS for either of these devices, it’s worth keeping an eye out there too.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is available right now from Three for £229.00 on PAYG or as a free handset on a £22 a month tariff. For your money, the Ace 2 is a highly capable device, complete with a 3.8-inch WVGA display, an 800MHz dual-core processor, a 5-megapixel camera and 3G connectivity. Of course out of the box you’ll be running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but if this pretty complete video trailer is any indication, you shouldn’t have to wait long for that to change.
