Samsung may have but some of its customers on high alert when it announced a couple of days ago that the ICS update for the Galaxy S II GT-I9100 will begin making its way to devices starting March the 10th. Unfortunately for the eager customers it seems like the announcement was made a little bit too early.
Soon after the initial leak, Samsung announced on its official Twitter channel that the release date for this much awaited ICS update is not going to be on the 10th of March. This might sound like disappointing news for people who were waiting for the official update, but there is still hope as Samsung announced on its official Twitter channel that as soon as the update schedule is concrete, it will post the release date of the update.
While many of you might still be waiting for the official thing, those of you who have rooted their devices may find comfort in the vast world of home made ROM’s, which has had access to the tasty Ice Cream Sandwich since a while back.
If you are still not convinced of the necessity of the update hear this, this new software will come with Face Unlock, Android Beam and data usage included, plus some overall tweaks to multitasking and some essential apps. But it will also come with a big disadvantage in the form of the lack of support for Flash, that is until Adobe decides to release a version that supports Android 4.0.
After this recent leak we can’t help but think that the release date of the Samsung Galaxy S II GT-I9100 ICS update is coming closer and closer, and with HTC already updating its high end Sensation devices, it would only be fit for Samsung to follow up soon.
