Confirmed: Samsung Galaxy S II will get Android 4.0 Although it was never really a question, Samsung has confirmed today that its popular Galaxy S II smartphone will be getting the Android 4.0 (ICS) update.
The tweet from Samsung UK says: "Hi, yes it will be released but no confirmed date yet. We will keep you updated." Out of context that makes no sense, but the tweet was in response to the question "ICS on GSII?"

Google showed off the operating system update last month to praise, and the first device to use the OS, the Galaxy Nexus has launched this week. Google also released the source code for 4.0 on Monday.

The Galaxy S II has a 4.27-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen, Android 2.3.4, a 1.2GHz Samsung dual-core processor, an 8.49mm thin chassis (at lowest), an 8MP camera with autofocus and 1080p recording, NFC support, 4G, a 2MP front-side camera and HSPA+, WiFi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0+HS.

It would be nice if my Telco would just update to 2.3.4 let alone ICS. My S2 came out with 2.3.3 on it. The phone is on a contract so it needs upgrading through the Telco or I'd put 2.3.5 on it myself.
