The release of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will bring Android 4.0 to the masses, but what about the vast majority of users already dining on Gingerbread and Honeycomb?
According to AndroidHD based in Italy, a select number of current-gen, Samsung Android devices will be receiving the upgrade to Android 4.0. If you haven’t yet been informed on what the latest update brings to the Android platform, it’s quite a doozy. The latest update for Google’s mobile OS builds on the features that people love most about Android including its efficient multitasking, customizable notifications, configurable home screens and resizeable widgets. Ice Cream Sandwich will also unify the tablet and smartphone operating systems into one family.
Here is a list of the devices that are supposed to be updated to Android 4.0:
- Galaxy S 2
- Galaxy Note
- Galaxy Tab 10.1
- Galaxy Tab 8.9
- Galaxy Tab 7.7
- Galaxy Tab 7 Plus
As you can see there is no mention of the original Galaxy S I9000 or even the Nexus S. Since this list is not official, we are taking it with a grain of salt–although we agree that the devices listed will most likely be upgraded to Android 4.0, it’s a farily conserative list and likely doesn’t include all the phones that are eligible for the bump up. We will have to wait and see if single-core processors can handle the delicious Ice Cream sandwich.
