Official Samsung Android 4.0 update list – April


Many are waiting to see what Samsung will unveil on May 5th, but those who currently own a Samsung phone are probably just as interested to know when their current phone will be updated to Android 4.0. Fortunately for U.S. customers, Samsung has just updated a support page on its site, revealing a comprehensive list of handsets which will be updated to Android 4.0 “as quickly and smoothly as possible.”

Samsung is in close communication with both Google and our carrier partners to upgrade devices to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as quickly and as smoothly as possible.Samsung

Samsung’s list includes handsets and tablets from all major U.S. carriers – except for T-Mobile. Samsung’s support page claims that they are “in close communication with T-Mobile to ensure that eligible devices are upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the coming months”  and will update us once more details are available. While the majority of Samsung’s most recent devices were named, Samsung failed give us specific dates as to when the Android 4.0 updates will be rolled out.

Will my device be updated?

As you are no doubt aware, Samsung was first out of the gate with Android 4.0 on first the Galaxy Nexus and then the Nexus S, but those are Nexus devices and that was to be expected. They have, in my opinion, been slightly less forthcoming than some of the other major manufacturers about their plans for the rest of their lineup.

The sheer number of devices they have released is no doubt at least partially to blame and despite often releasing the same line of phones (e.g., Galaxy S II) across many carriers, there are minor hardware variations in each that render the shared name less meaningful.
