The Samsung Galaxy S2 will be getting an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on March 15th, according to Samsung Mobile Israel.
This means within two weeks, some owners of the hugely successful Samsung Galaxy S2 smartphone will be able to update their handset from Android Gingerbread to Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
A post on the Samsung Mobile Israel Facebook page, translated by Android Central reads: We promised we were working on it. You waited patiently. And on 15 March it’ll arrive: Android version 4, ICS, to tens of thousands of GALAXY S II devices purchased from cellular companies in the country or directly from us. We are very excited for the launch, hope you are too 🙂‘
This backs up information released on the Samsung Norway Facebook page revealing the update would be arriving by the end of March. Since then various builds of the phone running Android 4.0 (ICS) have appeared online.
Of course, it’s not clear when the update will be coming to other territories – such as the UK – but hopefully we won’t be far behind.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 will be the first mobile phone from Samsung to get the update to Ice Cream Sandwich, which Samsung confirmed as far back as November 2011. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus launched was of course the first phone to launch with ICS.
We’ll update you with more information as soon as we get it, but Samsung Galaxy S2 fans shouldn’t have too long to wait now.
