Samsung posted a news release on its website yesterday to announce that its popular Galaxy S II handset will be graced with the Android Ice Cream Sandwich update on March 10. But today, a day before its release, the Korean company has stated that the release was “not true.”
In a message posted to its official Twitter feed, Samsung said the new story was “wrong,” and that it will announce the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade schedule on Twitter once it has been confirmed. The full tweet — translated rather badly — read:
[Let you know that the upgrade from 10 Galaxy S2 ICS Samsung Electronics website Filipino ascended to the post wrong article are not true. Once the upgrade schedule is confirmed through Twitter let me.
The news will undoubtedly be a huge disappointment to Galaxy S II owners, who may have cleared their schedule on Saturday night to prepare for the long-awaited upgrade. However, it shouldn’t be too long before the software does arrive.
A Samsung spokesperson confirmed to The Next Web that the update would begin its rollout “soon,” and that “specific models upgradable to ICS will vary by market.”
As soon as Samsung makes that announcement on Twitter, we’ll be sure to let you know.
Are you disappointed that the company got it wrong?
