Samsung Announce Devices To Get ICS - Galaxy S Not Included

4 posts in this topic

Samsung have today announced which of their devices will be getting an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich and surprisingly the Galaxy S is not one of them. The upgrades will start with the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II in the first quarter of 2012. These will be followed soon after by:

  • GALAXY R
  • GALAXY Tab 10.1
  • GALAXY Tab 8.9
  • GALAXY Tab 7.7
  • GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus

Samsung will make separate announcements for these devices nearer to release time.

Based on the comments on the announcement page, there are sure to be a lot of disgruntled Galaxy S owners who are looking for a slice of the ICS goodness. Fortunately it looks like CyanogenMod 9 will allow Galaxy S users to get ICS - in fact there is already a very early build available from Teamhacksung over on the XDA forums.

Slightly surprised by the Galaxy S not being updated but I can understand that Samsung would rather sell nice new Galaxy S 2 phones to people.

No updates for ARM6 devices makes sense right now since AOSP doesn't support them and Code Aurora only has limited support for them. If ARM6 is ever fully supported by ICS then it won't be for another month or two.
