samsung galaxy s II and galaxy note ice cream sandwich android 4.0 update

Curious about when will your Super-smart Samsung Galaxy S 2 or hybrid Galaxy Note will receive a Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Update ?

Don't get worried because Samsung has already announced their plan about future updates of their existing android devices. However, they have not provided with proper time table specifying the exact day when they will be releasing their updates for devices like Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note, or Phones like Galaxy R will be also receive updates. apart from these three phones Samsung will be coming out with updates of Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Tab 7.7, and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. Samsung declared that all the phones will be getting updates in first quarter of 2012.

Meanwhile, SlashGear reports that Samsung has held back Android 4.0 updates for Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus. It further says that the company was holding the update to “monitor feedback”, after several users complained about the high battery drain. The reported glitch can also be associated with a recent update to Android 4.0 Galaxy Nexus. The Galaxy Nexus users had earlier complained about similar problems.

Earlier this month, Motorola said that it would announce next month which of its devices would be getting the upgrade and when. Back in November, LG had announced that the ICS update would be available for the Optimus 2X, the Optimus Black, the Optimus 3D and the Optimus LTE, but did not reveal exactly when that would take place. Huawei Honor is also arriving in February with the ICS OS.

It appears that all the smartphone players are pushing for most of their top handsets to get the ICS. It will be interesting to see which of the manufacturers make most of the ICS update in near future.
