According to a Facebook posting by Samsung Mobile Israel’s page, Galaxy S II devices in that country will be seeing the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update hit their devices on March 15th. As expected, the posting has since been removed from Facebook, as Samsung is none too keen on things being announced outside of their official channels.

No official announcements have been made regarding the full rollout schedule for Android 4.0 on the various Galaxy S II models out there. The Verge speculates that if Android 4 does indeed come to Israel on the 15th, it will also likely launch in Europe on the same day. As tends to be the case with Android phones in the U.S., our update will likely come a bit later than the 15th as the carriers continue to ensure the update works well with their networks.

Regardless, we hope to see Android 4 hitting 2011′s most popular Android headset later this month, even if it does still feature the Touchwiz custom UI overlay. We’ll bring you the goods of a U.S. release once we know more.
