Samsung Electronics has announced the local availability of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) software upgrade for the GALAXY S II, with other models to follow soon.
Samsung Electronics completed upgrading the GALAXY devices to Gingerbread last year by providing software upgrades to both Froyo and Gingerbread. With the ICS upgrade, Samsung Electronics continues to solidify its position as the leader of Android devices.
‚This upgrade has been highly anticipated locally and we expect that our South African customers will enjoy an enhanced experience with their GALAXY device through this upgrade,‚ says Craige Fleischer, Head of Mobile Communications at Samsung Electronics SA.
The software upgrade and specific models upgradable to Android 4.0 via KIES PC client (by downloading the firmware via the KIES application) is immediately available across: Open (XFA) and Vodacom (XFV) and will be available tomorrow on MTN (XFM) and Cell C (XFC). Similarly, the upgrade via FOTA (by downloading the firmware upgrade over the air directly from your mobile phone) is in the roll out process and will be available by the end of today.
