The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first smartphone to run on the latest iteration of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich. If you’re wondering what other Samsung-made devices will be getting the update, we’re happy to report that the Galaxy Note and the S2 will get the ICS update.
The news has been confirmed by Samsung Italy. They have previously announced that the Galaxy S2 would get the update. This was followed by another announcement that the Galaxy Note would receive the Android 4.0 update as well. Furthermore, Ice Cream Sandwich will be rolling out to Samsung’s tablets as well. These include the Tab 7.0 Plus, the 7.7 (unreleased), the 8.9, and of course the 10.1.
Unfortunately, if you have one of Samsung’s older models such as the Galaxy S and the first Galaxy Tab, the Korean tech giant has not announced whether these older devices would be getting the update or not. Well, if Samsung doesn’t issue the ICS update to these older devices, we’re pretty sure ROM communities will.
According to HDBlog, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be rolling out to these devices sometime in the 2nd quarter of 2012. This will be quite a long wait, but it’s better to get the update late than never at all.
