Those with a Galaxy S II that are still patiently (or impatiently) awaiting the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich we have some good news. After a few reports that the Vodafone UK SGSII would be getting the update soon, Vodafone themselves have confirmed the update has been approved and all systems are a go, the update will be available this week.

Starting on April 12th the Vodafone Galaxy S II can update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as usual by accepting the over the air (OTA) update on their handsets. I’d be checking tomorrow at midnight if I were you. As usual the update will be pushed and available online using Samsung Kies for those opting to take that route.

Vodafone announced the update today, yet mentions this is a provisional date that could change at any time, but with the OTA set to start in just two days most likely everything will move forward as planned. The update to ICS brings all the new changes to Android but has the standard Samsung TouchWiz user interface overlay to keep things familiar, and simple for Samsung users. Enjoy the update and let us know if you have any issues come April 12th.
