Samsung to update Galaxy S II to Ice Cream Sandwich on March 10th [Updated]


I don't think I need to tell you that Samsung's Galaxy S II line of smartphones is among the best and most popular of Android handsets. Heck, I'd even argue that all of the company's phones are among the best Android devices, period. But the one thing that has always bugged me quite a bit about Samsung is its update patterns. Granted, it's gotten better over the years, but there is still a lot of software that the company's customers are missing out on. 

For example, Galaxy S II owners have been anxiously awaiting Ice Cream Sandwich since the update's inception. Luckily for them, though, Samsung has finally let the world know when the update will be rolled out to devices: March 10th. That's a little off from a rumor that we had previously heard, which pegged the update on March 1st.

So, if you own a Galaxy S II, just wait until Saturday for your update to the latest version of Android. Who's excited?

Update: As pointed out in the comments, this isn't true. Ouch.

  • hey caleb, any word on whether Sprint will be rolling ICS out to the Epic 4g Touch around the same time? or does Samsung supercede Sprint here? (sorry if an ignorant question)

  • nevermind. i see now that Samsung tweeted that even the 3/10 date was bogus and was only going to be for the international versions.

  • I’d assume that the entire Galaxy S II line (including the Epic 4G Touch) will be upgraded at the same time.
