Samsung unveils Galaxy S II Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update

Samsung (Hi Res)

More just desserts

Consumer electronics giant Samsung has announced that its flagship Samsung Galaxy S II mobile phone will be gaining an update to the newest version of the Google mobile OS, known as Ice Cream Sandwich.

Samsung brought out this news over Twitter, in a tweet from the @samsunguk account and in a message that reads: ‘ Hi, good news – the Galaxy S II will be receiving ICS, but there are no dates confirmed as yet. We will keep you posted.’

This is the first time Samsung has made public any information relating to Android 4.0, or which of its mobile phones will be gaining an upgrade at a later stage.

The news follows both HTC and LG releasing details of their own intentions and plans, as to which of their own handsets will be seeing Ice Cream Sandwich deployed within due course.

The High Tech Computer Corporation has controversially noted the HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE and HTC EVO 3D will be seeing the newest Google mobile OS.

This leaves out a number of their 2011 line-up of handsets, such as the Wildfire S, Desire S and HTC Rhythm.
