Samsung has confirmed today that Galaxy S II owners in the U.K. will get Google’s latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. The Korean electronics giant confirmed the news in a message posted to Twitter, but didn’t give any indication when the update might go live.
While we knew the update was set for selected smartphones in the U.S., Samsung hasn’t previously confirmed that those across the Atlantic would get the same treatment. A short message posted to Twitter, however, gives Galaxy S II owners something awesome to look forward to:
Hi, good news – the Galaxy S II will be receiving ICS, but there are no dates confirmed as yet. We will keep you posted.
Unfortunately the company is yet to give any news regarding its other smartphones and tablets, but it has previously confirmed that those with the new Galaxy Note would also get the update, along with those who own a Galaxy Tab 7.0, Galaxy Tab 7.7, Galaxy Tab 8.9, and Galaxy Tab 10.1.
Those who can’t wait for the update to launch can get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich today from the Samsung Galaxy Nexus — the world’s first handset to ship with Android 4.0. However, the two devices aren’t all that different when it comes to specs, and with an 8-megapixel camera as opposed the 5-megapixel camera on the Galaxy Nexus, many would argue that the Galaxy S II will be a better handset with the Ice Cream Sandwich update.
Which handset would you prefer?
