Samsung Galaxy S II Android 4.0 update coming March 10

News has just hit the wires from Samsung themselves that they'll officially be updating the Galaxy S II to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Saturday. This will be for the international version most know as the GT-i9100 and not the US versions on T-Mobile AT&T and others. In just two days you international Galaxy S II owners will be enjoying some Android 4.0 ICS.

We are unsure if the update will be rolled out over the air for all International carrier versions but the details direct from Samsung confirm that it will be here on the 10th, and will be available on KIES to download should you choose. Obviously this is the latest and greatest from Google and ICS is awesome so we'd strongly recommend it.

Sadly those with the T-Mobile or AT&T carrier branded Galaxy S II's you'll have to wait a little longer. Most likely these updates are also coming very shortly considering they all run similar versions of Gingerbread with TouchWiz and aren't too carrier specific. We should be hearing more about the US versions shortly. Also we can expect the official release to be ported to US models immediately after hitting download wires thanks to those awesome Android Community developers.

Users can enjoy plenty of Samsung's own improvements plus the awesome features in Ice Cream Sandwich to make a great overall experience. Check the FAQ if you have questions. Hit the links below for more details on the Galaxy S II or Ice Cream Sandwich. Let us know how the update goes come Saturday you lucky buggers!

    I’ve got the Galacy S, and if im being honest its a terrible phone. I’m still debating whether to go for an S3 or maybe a HTC.

    Android….Which version are you waiting for?
    I’m done with Google. 
    Not because of their privacy issues, as if anything is private anymore.
    Not because of their ability to close down an email address whenever they feel like it,
    Not because their Nexus phones suck ass, honestly!
    Not because they don’t honor their word when it comes to updates, (pick a version)
    but because they don’t say a damn thing, EVER! No communication at all.
    KMA Google.

    You sound like a total retard, congrats on such an awesome commentary. Troll 2/10

  • trollkiller

    Samsung has better hardware and more custom devs than HTC. Throw away Samsung’s stock rom and install custom roms and see your device fly.

  • in2android

    Fuck off moron! Wtf is a troll? I don’t agree with the common consensus so you nerds make up a name to catagorize us? Get a life idiot, my comment is made to express my point of view with a little humor….. what are you…. about 12? Respect your elders son!

  • in2android

    A troll? Not a single word funnier to me? When I was young we thought up some very creative, extremely foul names to call each other ! Kid…. I think its past your bedtime, but we’ll brief you on the news first thing in the morning…. nighty night!

  • in2android

    Of course I tried that, neither the T-Mobile gs2 nor, the skyrocket rooms were at all enticing…. I was very disappointed. I like to tinker, & to me those devices both lacked development….

  • lololol

    aawww the “elder” guy just got pissed, again you sound like the ignorant blatant retard you are. You shouldn’t use such advanced devices, stick to your old nokia 3310, fits more to your knowledge, “grandpa”

  • hefnig

     what a pair of no-life, the last girl u 2 saw was when u were playing second life

  • in2android

    Easy kid, I employ ppl like your parents so your fathers able to pay support to your mother, & your mother has her tax refund to purchase you subsidized devices like this. I’m not he bad guy…. Im the one who took the tax spikes so that they idntg have to! EASY KID!!!!

  • in2android

    See ya guys later…. you can’t have a descent commentary on any of these sites until the parents start using some sort of web guard & enforce a reasonable bedtime!!!

  • lololol

    You’re a hero, you save my parents. The worlds needs more people like you.

    Also, I don’t know why is so hard for you to have proper grammar? Also a little of coherency on your sentences wouldn’t be bad.

    Oh, and as trollkiller said, Samsung has much better hardware and vastly more custom developers and more roms than HTC, your opinion is based on the UI, i.e. Touchwiz and because it doesn’t fit your taste (which it seems a bit to advanced for your age perhaps?) you criticize all the features of the device? Seems legit.So, in other words, you’re an ignorant blatant for throw away a phone because of the UI when you have a lot of cutoms roms out there that are way better than the stock rom. Try harder next time.

    Hey, I’ve been on these forums for years, and it seems as of late you can’t have an opinion without a child spouting off! I’m 43 yrs old, & they get on my god damn wires!

  • Androidess

    I barely understood what all the spouting off was about outside of that one doesn’t seem to care much for the Galaxy S II. That’s cool-just as I wasn’t impressed with the HTC Sensation I had prior to that. If unhappy, root it, get a different brand or get the iCrap (-That’s sarcasm.) I just had a friend, that I now see in a totally, different light, that is basically, amazed with his recent switch to the iFoney 4S. Considering that he’s been without a cell phone for about a year, the phone he had last was the Moment on Sprint (what was that, like the 2nd or 3rd US Android after the G1, so circa 2009??) lastly, he has the iCrap on VZW-so, there should be a significant increase in bandwidth compared to his previous Sprint, it being several years later & the fact that he lives in super rural Indiana-where even, God has to be on VZW to communicate! Seriously, the bottom line is that he’s a moron to not see the tremendous advances of ICS or Gingerbread to what was then, around, 1.2 on the Moment -That’s roughly, when Android started to truly take off with the other carriers & gain recognition. All I can say to him, is welcome to the herd & point his lost self to the village that’s been without him. (My opinion.)
