With the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S III rumoured to be not too far around the corner, yesterday, the firm’s branch in Israel announced on facebook, with the post subsequently removed, that the Galaxy S II will receive a full roll out to Android 4.0 ICS on March 15th.
The rollout will begin for device owners with a number of European countries including Poland, Hungary and Sweden and it will also include those in Samsungs native Korea.
There is no confirmed date as the final details are in the hands of the local carriers, who will review the upgrade and make any necessary tweaks, as the company explains:The availability and scheduling of the software update and specific models upgradable to Android 4.0 will vary by market and wireless carriers’ requirements.
The update comes with a rather generic, but happy sounding, quote from JK Shin, President of Samsungs IT and Mobile Communications Group, who says:We expect that our customers will enjoy an enhanced experience with their Galaxy device through this upgrade.
Earlier today, we learned the release date of one of T Mobiles upcoming HSPA+ 42 smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G.
The promised update to the latest Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) OS will be available tomorrow (March 10).
