HTC was the first to update a phone to Android 4.0, but not by much. Samsung has started pushing out its Android 4.0 update for the Samsung Galaxy S II in Korea, Poland, Hungary and Sweden with a UK release scheduled for the week of March 19. Naturally, the Android 4.0 rollout “will be dependent upon each network’s own software approvals process.”

The upgrade will begin in European countries including Poland, Hungary, Sweden, as well as Korea today and gradually roll out to other markets,Samsung

Samsung notes that the Android 4.0 upgrade for the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 will be available soon, along with a new Android 2.3 update for the Galaxy S, Galaxy Tab 7”, Galaxy S Plus, Galaxy S SCL and Galaxy W. This update will start hitting devices by the end of March and includes features like Face Unlock, Photo Editor and Snapshot.

Samsung made no mention as to when the Android 4.0 or Android 2.3 update will be available for the Galaxy S and S II variants in the US market. For now, all we can do is wait.

How long do you think it will be before we see Samsung’s Android 4.0 update for the Galaxy S II hit our shores?
