After a very long waiting period, Galaxy S2 owners have a sign of relief as Samsung has finally rolled out the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone. The official announcement was made via the company’s Samsung Tomorrow blog stating that the update will initially be available in Europe, with Poland, Hungary and Sweden mentioned specifically, as well as in Korea. This initial phase will make way for a wider roll out soon after.
The update to the latest version of the Android OS is done using Samsung’s Kies software. However, users who wish not to wait any longer can follow the instructions on the XDA developers forum to manually update their SG 2 smartphones.
JK Shin, President of Samsung’s IT and Mobile Communications Group, says -
We expect that our customers will enjoy an enhanced experience with their Galaxy device through this upgrade. Samsung is committed to satisfying our customer needs.
Samsung also made a public announcement on its Samsung Mobile’s Facebook page. Moments later, the announcement brought in over 700+ comments from fans and users of the Samsung Galaxy 2 smartphone.
Users of the Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II LTE or either the Tab 10.1 or Tab 8.9 tablets will have to wait a little longer. Samsung has promised an update to ICS “will follow soon” on these devices. Since the ICS update is now available on Samsung Galaxy s II, expect that these devices will get the updates very soon.
