Today is a good day for fans and owners of the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone. Samsung has officially confirmed that the smartphone will be getting the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. Samsung confirmed the update would be hitting the Galaxy S II via a tweet from Samsung UK. The tweet does leave out some important details.

For instance, there is no mention of the time frame that the update will come for the S II. At least we know the update is coming. With many of the high-end devices getting the update early in 2012, perhaps the S II will as well. It’s worth noting that since the tweet was from Samsung UK that other markets might not be getting the update at the same time.

Samsung UK notes that it will update fans with more details on the official availability when it can. What’s your guess on the time frame for the update? I would think Q1 2012 along with the other popular Android devices.
