Samsung officially deploys Android 4.0 to Galaxy S II

Samsung has officially begun sending out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update to the European Galaxy S II handset. Confirmed in a Facebook post yesterday, the update is also hitting Korea, Poland, Hungary, and Sweden and will “gradually roll out” to other markets in short order. Pocket-Lint advises that new countries will see their update on March 19th.

In addition, we’ll also offer Android 2.3 Gingerbread firmware upgrades for GALAXY S, GALAXY Tab 7″, GALAXY S Plus, GALAXY S SCL (Super Clear LCD) and GALAXY W from end March. The firmware upgrades for GALAXY S, for example, include Face Unlock, Snapshot, Photo Editor, and others.

Keep in mind that this 4.0 update is not intended for the handset you picked up from T-Mobile, Sprint, or AT&T. Those carrier-branded U.S. editions will have to wait a bit before any hard news surfaces. Up next for Samsung are the Android 4.0 for the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy Tab 8.9, and Galaxy Tab 10.1.
