The wait is over! The long-overdue Android 4.0 update for the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II will be available on June 11th. While HTC, Motorola and most other Android OEMs typically push out OTA (over the air) updates, Samsung’s Android 4.0 update for the Galaxy S II will be available for manual downloads through Samsung’s Kies.
Over the past few months, there have been multiple Android 4.0 leaks and previews for various Samsung phones, giving us a pretty good idea of what to expect. The Android 4.0 update should incorporate the majority of the new features Google introduced with Ice Cream Sandwich, but users will have to dig to find them since TouchWiz on it will not look much different than previous versions.
Now that we have a release date for T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II’s update, it’s only a matter of time before Sprint and AT&T announce their plans for rolling out Android 4.0 for their version of the handset. How long do you think it’ll be before Samsung is able to update all U.S. versions of the SGSII?
