Samsung has finally announced its plans to upgrade the Samsung Galaxy S II to Android 4.0 ICS. The update is starting now in Korea, Poland, Sweden and Hungary and will be available via KIES 2.0.
The upgrade includes a great deal of improvements with Android 4.0. These include enhancements to the UI, an updated version of Android system apps, and a much more advanced camera app, among other things. The update will also include a much improved battery life.
Samsung also says that it plans to upgrade the various other versions of the Galaxy S II to Ice Cream Sandwich, including the Galaxy S II LTE and the Galaxy Note. We should also be hearing more about the carrier-specific updates soon.
