Galaxy SII ICS release seemingly dated

Many users of the Android platform are currently keeping their fingers crossed in the hope that their handset will be receiving the latest Android operating system, especially for devices that are a bit older. One of the leading handsets on the platform in recent times is the Samsung Galaxy S2, and it seems that the ICS release was been dated for the device.

Earlier today we told you about the unofficial Android 4.0.4 being available for the Galaxy Nexus, and before that has been released officially it seems another version is already in existence. According to Pocket Now French cell phone carrier, SFR has published a table that can be seen below regarding versions of the operating system and release dates for various handsets.

The table shows both the HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy S II will be getting Android 4.0 in March, which falls in with Samsung previous announcements of a quarter one release. It shows the HTC Sensation will also feature Sense 3.5, and the company has already revealed that ICS will come in the white version of the Sensation.

Both the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus smartphones will also be getting the unknown Android 4.0.5 version, and with the same March timeframe. Currently there is no information about any enhancements or extras with Android 4.0.5.

It also has to be remembered that the rollout for software updates can vary between the different carries and for unlocked versions. The table also shows both the HTC Desire HD and Desire S are only down for Android 2.3.5 updates. This will leave Desire HD owners wondering if they will be stuck on Gingerbread along with owners Desire S.
