Samsung Galaxy S2 Gets Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

European owners of the Samsung Galaxy S2 (aka the I9100) have finally started to get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich over the air.

Samsung Mobile issued a tweet saying that the update would be available from the 13th in Poland, Hungary, Sweden and the rest of Europe (as well as Korea) and would gradually roll out to other markets.

The latter phase would be highly dependent on the whims of mobile phone operators though. Samsung has already confirmed that Ice Cream Sandwich would come to the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy SII LTE, the Galaxy Tab 8.9, 7.0 Plus, 7.7 and the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

In addition, the company has announced that official Gingerbread updates would be available for the Galaxy S, Galaxy Tab 7, Galaxy S Plus, Galaxy S SCL(Super Clear LCD), and Galaxy W from the end of March.

The upgrades will bring a photo editor, face unlock, snapshot as well as other improvements to the handsets. It looks likely that the latter batch won't get Ice Cream Sandwich anytime soon although all of them would comply to its hardware requirements.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
