Users of Samsung’s flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S II in the United Kingdom are now able to get the device’s latest software update.
Korean electronics giant Samsung has started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update to Galaxy S II smartphone users who are signed up to the Three network. The provider has made the update available through Samsung Kies.
Sadly, if you are one of those people who got their phones on a contract, you will have to wait a litlle loner since software testing can be a very lengthy process.
The company confirmed that the Ice Cream Sandwich for Galaxy S II has been released in the country, but networks will take a little longer to update. “Samsung UK can confirm that the roll out of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on Galaxy S II will be available from week commencing 19 March, however the availability of software upgrades in the UK will be dependent upon each network’s own software approvals process,” said Samsung in a statement.
Other devices from the company will receive an Ice Cream Sandwich update in the coming months or weeks. Samsung said last week that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades for the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 will “follow soon.”
It hasn’t been revealed by Three if there will be an over-the-air upgrade option.
