The AT&T version of the highly hyped and often talked about Samsung Galaxy Note seem to be on its way to an impending upgrade to Google's latest operating system, the Android 4.0 ICS or Ice Cream Sandwich. But, that is not something that can be said about the Galaxy S2 of the Korean electronics giant.
If the set of new reports become real, the soon to happen CTIA event in the United States is the best time for the official announcement of the update to the Ice Cream Sandwich.
According to the people behind the speculations, AT&T's 4G LTE version of the Galaxy Note has been seen with a fully stable and built Android 4.0 ICS. But, with the way the OS has been running behind the TouchWiz interface of Samsung, those that claim to have experienced the Galaxy Note's update first-hand claim that there is a remarkable difference.
However, the difference may only be at first look and with the short testing, the Android 4.0 ICS OS will provide a wide set of features which include Android's Google Chrome, enhanced management system utilized for multitasking, a set of new settings for the purpose of managing data and a stronger support for important applications such as YouTube and Gmail.
Now that the Galaxy Note gets it upgrade, it seems that the Galaxy S2 has been left behind in the update. Although there will surely be an update, it seems to be a huge absence from the original Galaxy S2 and the 4G LTE Galaxy S2 Skyrocket even if AT&T keeps on selling the two devices very well. Moreover, the ICS upgrade is not just notably absent, no schedule has been given for that very essential facelift.
Rumors have been coming out since the early parts of April about the Android upgrade rollout for the Samsung Galaxy S2 even if no official schedule has been announced thus far. In fact, AT&T has not made mention of the Galaxy S2 so it seems that everyone should keep on guessing when the second Galaxy smartphone will be given the attention it deserves when it comes to the ICS upgrade.
