ICS to come soon to Telus' Samsung Galaxy S2 X

April 5, 2012

News about the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy S2 and its many variants is one topic that we’d relentlessly report to our readers. We know how hard it can be to feel left out from the ICS party, particularly if you have an insatiable sweet tooth. You’d think that since the user guide has been published and the ICS source code has been shared, things would move along at a faster speed. But obviously, there’s something that’s holding back the update from reaching your phone.

If you happen to have a Samsung Galaxy S2 X on Telus, you’re in for an ICS surprise. A quick check on the Canadian carrier’s  website reveals that the expected ICS upgrade date for Samsung Galaxy S2 X phone has been changed from a vague “Available in 2012” to a more acceptable “coming soon”.

We don’t know what the new announcement implies, but it’s decidedly better than the former. After all, there are still eight more months left in the calendar year. Taking the glass is half-full approach; there is a good possibility that your phone will receive the ICS update this month.

For our Canadian readers on Bell Mobility who may have missed the announcement, the carrier has released a timeline of when your Android devices will receive Ice Cream Sandwich. Here’s the complete list:

  • April 2012: Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy Note
  • May 2012: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
  • June 2012: Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE, HTC Sensation, HTC Raider
  • July 2012: LG Optimus LTE
