Israel Samsung Galaxy S II users getting Android 4.0 on March 15


As we keep waiting for manufacturers to update our devices, Samsung’s Israeli division has brought a little light to our darkness. The company has posted, on its official Facebook page, that Galaxy S II users would be getting an Ice Cream Sandwich update come March 15th.

The Android 4.0 upgrade is said to come to both carrier-locked and SIM-free versions. This is leading us to believe that there is a slight possibility that the update could be coming to the international version soon, as well. Details about the matter are scarce, though.

Regardless, this probably means that other countries will get it soon, as well. Except for the US, which has carrier-specific Galaxy S II versions. The process should take a bit longer for American Galaxy S II devices. Let’s just stay tuned and wait until we hear more about this. You can be sure that we will be here to tell you about it.

    how long do you guys think it’ll take for our american-version galaxies to get this? (Samsung Galaxy S II Epic Touch through Sprint)

      There are test builds that have already leaked with ICS on the GSII for Sprint, so it’s good to know they’re already working on it.  I’m guessing we’re probably going to get it no later than April (or hopefully this month instead)… but that’s no guarantee.  Other carriers will likely get theirs shortly after.
      Samsung has been slow on updates in the past, but it doesn’t mean they will continue to be slow at it.  Their phones are selling very well, and they’re not in a rush to deliver to the market unless there’s a patch needed to be delivered (which they’ve been very good at so far).

      Sprint probably by end of summer, At&t end of 2012, T-Mobile sometime in 2013 or never.

      Just my predictions.

    The more I hear about the pathetic treatment of carrier locked custom us and Canadian phones, the less I want to buy another one. It’s sounding like a better idea to but an unlocked international phone…

      it is very tempting but its still hard to justify spending 700 on a phone u could get for 70% less if u can just be patient and the Mod Community will get u updates sooner than the carriers
