going off samsungs update record......6-8 months after ics is released.
right, it's far enough that we shouldn't even be worrying about it at this point. Enjoy what you got...
Should be a bit sooner if you want to use ROM's, but yeah, there's a long time ahead.
The new devices will get ICS first as it is a great tool to sell new devices. Longs after they wear it out with sales, they will give it to existing users. You will already be hearing about the next greatest OS after ICS when we SG2 users get it.
Samsung Galaxy S II will chomp into Ice Cream Sandwich | TG Daily
They are talking about the UK version of the SGS2. Ours still have to pass through At&t.
I bought this phone expecting never to see ICS, so if we ever get it, great. If not, this phone running gingerbread is a-ok with me.
Ice Cream Sandwich ported to a Galaxy S II... and the people rejoice -- Engadget
So, based on this ICS rom the soft key buttons are going to be on the phone as well as the capacitive buttons? I hope that is not the case when we eventually get ICS, otherwise that is fkn ******ed.
But, I guess if the plan is to disable the on screen buttons this will add to the delay.
UK version released means a ROM ported over to the i777. Better than stock FW.
If your phone has capacitive buttons, the on screen buttons are not drawn in ICS. Only the new phones like the Galaxy Nexus without capacitive buttons will show the on screen buttons.
What about all the people who aren't rooted? They will still have go wait for ATT.
All the more reason to root! If I could do it, anyone can.
I read on another forum that SGS2/SR will get it Q1 2012 (Jan-Mar)
Is there any way to decline the update so that the reminder doesn't keep recurring?
I have a big hunch that it's these OS updates that eventually bog down the phone. I went through a bunch of Eclair/Froyo updates on my OG Droid, and eventually the thing slowed to a crawl. I like Gingerbread, I like how fast my phone is now, I see no reason to upgrade to ICS.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 release date was April 2011. Features and Specs include a 4.3" inch screen, 8MP camera, 1GB RAM, Exynos 4210 Dual processor, and 1650mAh battery.
