Samsung confirms ICS update for Galaxy S II, Note in Q1

If you own a Samsung smartphone or tablet and are wondering about an upgrade to Android 4.0 ICS for your device, Samsung is offering up details. Samsung has officially confirmed the OCD upgrade schedule for its Android devices so you now know how long you have to wait. Perhaps two of the most important devices getting the update will be the GSII and the Note in Q1.

With these two new and popular devices set for the first quarter of next year, Samsung listed eight devices total that will all be getting the ISC update. The other devices include the LTE versions of the S II, Galaxy R, the Tab 10.1, 8.9, and the 7.7. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is also listed. Samsung has said officially the updates are coming, but the firm didn’t offer a timeline.

One popular smartphone that you might notice is missing from the ICS update line is the original Galaxy S. That won't be good news for the users rocking that smartphone. The updates could take a while; Samsung will need to work with the carriers to get the updates to them specifically tweaked for their networks.
