good news! Samsung release ICS 4.0.3 for Galaxy S2 i9100
Samsung has finally announced its plans to upgrade the Galaxy S II line of smartphones to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. As expected, the announcement was made through the company's official Twitter account. The roll-out of the update will begin in South Korea and Europe before heading to other markets.
The upgrade will be offered to South Korean users beginning on March 13, 2012. It will also be available to users in other countries, including Poland, Hungary, and Sweden, before arriving in other markets like the UK. Galaxy S II owners in the U.S. will have to wait until their respective carriers approve the upgrade before it will be made available to them.
Samsung also says that it plans to upgrade the various other versions of the Galaxy S II to Ice Cream Sandwich, including the Galaxy S II LTE and the Galaxy Note, as well as the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1. The upgrade will include the Face Unlock feature as well as some new image editing tools. Users will likely have to use Samsung's Kies software to perform the upgrade once it is available to them.
Unfortunately, Samsung reiterated its message that the original Galaxy S smartphone line and the Galaxy Tab tablet will remain on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and will not be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
