After fears of its bypassing the U.S. and after Hurricane Irene pushed back its unveiling event one day later, the world-famous Samsung Galaxy S II was officially announced today and will be arriving on mobile…
It’s been a long time a-coming, but owners of the Samsung Galaxy S2 on T-Mobile can stop daydreaming about Ice Cream Sandwich and start preparing for a scoop. T-Mobile has announced on their Twitter account that the Android 4.0 upgrade for the device is “coming via Samsung Kies” starting June 6. Sadly, the carrier hasn’t mentioned anything else, except that more details will be posted soon. Let’s just hope and assume that we’ll hear more from them this week.
Back in April, Samsung released a list of all its devices in the US that will be getting ICS – a list that oddly excludes T-Mobile devices. “We are in close communication with T-Mobile to ensure that eligible devices are upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the coming months and will provide updates as we have additional details to share,” Samsung said at the time.
So if T-Mobile sticks with its June 6 date to roll out the ICS upgrade, owners of T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S2 will get to have the last laugh. As of now, there’s still no specific date as to when AT&T and Sprint subscribers will receive ICS on their Galaxy S2 phones.
Still looking forward to the ICS upgrade on your T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S2?
