Galaxy S II ICS update delayed by Samsung

Posted on Mar 13 2012 - 6:06am by Julius

Samsung Galaxy S II owners have been waiting very long for March 10, the day set by Samsung to release the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade to users of its flagship smartphone. What’s disappointing was, the day came and there was no upgrade.

According to a report by tech website Engadget, Samsung has informed users of its Galaxy S II smartphone that the latest Android upgrade will not happen on the 10th, but will happen at a later date. The company has even said that the date given was a mistake by them.

Now, it seems that the first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update will begin rolling out for the Galaxy S II smartphone on South Korean mobile carrier SK Telecom. With this, users from the United Kingdom and the United States will get their hands on the update very soon.

Unfortunately, the announcement was deleted immediately, so we’re still not sure when they are going to roll this one out.

For those who are eagerly waiting for the software’s international version update, it seems like they are listening t a broken record. The Korean branch of Samsung said that the latest Android version will be released on March 10th or 15th, while some say that it could be as early as today.

Samsung said that the delay is due to a number of additional testing, to ensure that users will not experience problems with the Ice Cream Sandwich update. The company also said that users should watch out for further announcements on their Facebook page and Twitter feeds.

    So if OS X upgrades are the same as a Windows Service Packs then version 10.7 must be exactly the same as version 10.1 except with a bunch of bug fixes.
