Yet another rumor claiming that the Samsung Galaxy S2 will get Android 4.0 update this month.
While more rumors about the mythical Galaxy S3 appear online, Samsung’s older but still cool Galaxy S2 has its own piece of the mill’s pie. This week, a new rumor lavishly claimed that the much-anticipated Android Ice Cream Sandwich ver. 4.0 is due to hit company’s best-selling phone yet, reportedly starting on March 14.
The source of the new rumor is none other than Samsung Israel through the branch’sFacebook account. After using Google Translate, tech news websites discover that Israel’s Samsung office was aware of the March 15th software update presumably covering the country’s own Galaxy S2 smartphone, if true, then expect to see ROMs leaking to web for S2 phones of other countries including United Kingdom (crossed fingers for the AT&T Galaxy S2).
“You waited patiently,” says the translated post of Samsung Israel’s Facebook account, adding that they’re excited to launch the Android 4.0 update that will invade “tens of thousands” of Galaxy S2 phones.
The current version of Android running on the S2 is the Android 2.3 Gingerbread with custom Samsung skin called “TouchWiz.” Again if true, then the ICS-based S2 will now support new features like data management built-in settings, better multitasking with swipe-to-dismiss, Chrome for Android support (because Google said its web browser supports Android 4.0 only), new YouTube user interface, new camera interface with almost zero shutter lag, and enhanced Google Talk and Contacts application or the so-called “People App.”
Data say the Samsung Galaxy S2 is one of the most popular Android handsets last year, and arguably the most popular based on the sales number since January of this year.
