Samsung announces Android 4.0 for Galaxy line

Samsung announces Android 4.0 for Galaxy line

Samsung’s blog has a post up today which outlines the various models expected to see an Android 4.0 update in the new year.  According to the device maker there are a number of handsets and tablets which will be treated to Ice Cream Sandwich, with some starting in the first quarter.  The list is not much of a surprise to us and is comprised mostly of 2011’s product line.

Samsung Electronics plan to provide the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for GALAXY devices. The platform update for GALAXY S II and GALAXY Note will start in the first quarter 2012, and other GALAXY devices will soon follow.

The ICS-upgradable devices are the GALAXY S II, GALAXY S II LTE, GALAXY Note, GALAXY R, GALAXY Tab 10.1, GALAXY Tab 8.9, GALAXY Tab 7.7, and GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus.

For upgradable models, Samsung will make separate announcements on details of OS updates schedule for each market according to market situation and carriers’ requirements.

Keep that last part of the quote in min as we head into 2012 as not all carriers will roll out their updates at the same time.  It would be unwise to assume that your Epic 4G Touch would see Android 4.0 at the same time as the standard Galaxy S II from across the pond.

    Samsung officially totally denies news on Android 4. When publishing such info it would be nice to quote the official or unofficial source otherwise it’s pure gossip or just plainly made up. I have an official mail by Samsung that denies this..folks, pls try to be more accurate or u wont have any credibility. tks
