March release for Samsung Galaxy S II Android 4.0 update

Ice Cream Sarnie inbound

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Samsung said in November 2011 that Android 4.0 - aka Ice Cream Sandwich - will be coming to its Galaxy S II smartphone some time in 2012. It has yet to narrow that window, but industry leak merchant Eldar Murtazin has now said ICS will hit the S II in March.

Unsurprisingly, operator-tied handsets may have to wait a little longer for the upgrade, but Samsung's Kies software will begin flashing up the availability of the new OS on 1 March, Murtazin claimed in a Tweet today.

March seems to be the month for ICS updates: HTC will begin updating its smartphones that month. Sony Ericsson has always said it wouldn't update its phones to ICS before then.

Google released its ICS code to phone and tablet makers in November 2011. ®
