The Samsung Galaxy S II may have seen the popular update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich already in various markets in the world and the international version, but not the unlocked models here in the USA. By unlocked we mean the global (with the home button) international SGSII that some may have here in the US, are finally being updated this morning thanks to Samsung.
The update has already rolled out for many, and most recently for Vodafone UK, but today we are getting the same fate as the folks from Engadget got the update this morning. It appears to be a pretty hefty update coming in at 216MB in size, so might take a few minutes to download but will surely be worth it for the frozen Ice Cream Sandwich.
Almost all of the Galaxy S II phones have now been updated to Android 4.0 ICS, except for those carrier branded and tweaked models here in the US. Those rocking the T-Mobile SGSII, or the Epic 4G Touch will have to wait a little longer for something official. AT&T’s Galaxy S II Skyrocket recently received a second Gingerbread update earlier this month, so ICS for that phone still seems a few weeks off at best.
Hopefully the carrier branded SGSII’s get updated soon, but for now all of those with the international version should be enjoying the latest from Google.
