O2 Confirms Galaxy S II ICS Update for Mid April, Vodafone ‘As Quickly As Possible’

The Samsung Galaxy S II and its update to Android 4.0 has been all over the interwebs recently. We watched yesterday as Samsung released the official update to the international version of the device, shortly after Korea’s SK Telecom had to pull their tweet confirming the update for March 13th. This was all fine and dandy for those who own a SIM-free Galaxy S II, but the question still remains, when will carrier branded GSII’s receive the update? Well, according to a few recent carrier statements, we can pinpoint their release a little bit more accurately.

Vodafone has gone on record as saying the update will be pushed out “as quickly as possible” and O2 decided to get a bit more specific. According to an O2 spokesman, the ICS update should hit Vodafone GSII’s in mid-April. That’s not exactly a precise date, but it’s better than a vague ‘coming soon’ announcement we’ve grown accustom to. As far as U.S. carriers go, well, they have taken the more uninformative route and have decided to not mention their update plans at all. Based on how long it’s taken them to push out OS updates in the past, you can predict a release sometime in the summer unfortunately. Here’s hoping they prove me wrong and deliver much sooner rather than later.
