Ice Cream Sandwich to Arrive on Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note on March 1st

The most recent version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) has been set to rollout to Samsung’s Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note models from March 1, reports Eldar Murtazin (a controversial mobile insider).

According a tweet posted by Murtazin, the official update would begin to rollout earlier next month, eventually conveying stable builds of earlier released, which had reportedly leaked from the South Korean electronics giant:

“Android 4 aka ics for sgs2 will be officially available from march 1(depends from country/operator). Update over the air or using kies.”

A public announcement was made by Samsung on December 20, 2011, confirming that the Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab range would get official ICS or Android 4.0 update. It was said earlier by the Samsung that both Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note will get Ice Cream Sandwich updates in the first quarter of 2012, with updates for other smartphones and tablets will be rolled out later.


We have also heard about rumblings claiming that Samsung was up to announce an Android ‘Value Pack’ for the Galaxy S users, after confirming that the Galaxy S and original Galaxy Tab won’t receive any update because of lower specs. However, the hopes shattered when Samsung said that these are mere speculations and company wasn’t announcing any such compensatory ‘Value Pack’ for Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab users.

It is also important to note here that the South Korean company has not yet confirmed the official date of release. So, all these reports are nothing but rumblings at the moment. If these reports are true, then the update rollout is only three weeks away from making its way to Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab.
