Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note ICS update to be released in March?

Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note ICS update to be released in March?

It seems that Samsung is working on Ice Cream Sandwich for the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note, as Eldar Murtazin is saying that Sammy will launch the update for both devices on March 1st. Eldar also told us about the Galaxy S II Plus, which is rumored to be arriving in April.

If we go back in the past, Eldar has always been true and accurate about his words, so hopefully we can expect the update for both Galaxy Note and S II soon. Of course, an official statement from Samsung wouldn’t hurt. As always with rumors of this type, we’re not making any bets on it until we get confirmation.

So, we want to hear from you! Are any Galaxy Note or Galaxy S II users out there getting excited for March 1st? Do you think Samsung will deliver on this rumored release? Drop a comment below!

    We’ve been patient up to now. Now I just want it! I don’t want to have to go back to a Odin’d ROM to improve my battery life so I hope this fixes the issue.

    It might be march 1st for the international gs2, but I wouldn’t hold my breath for the US variants.

    I’ve been waiting but I don’t think that the update won’t be out for the US because of so many variances of the SGS2. Plus we haven’t heard anything from Samsung.

    I too have a Samsung Galaxy S II, and I can’t wait for this update to hit my device. I think ICS will be the same as the Android 2.3.6 for those who have this device. Cross your fingers.
