Samsung Galaxy SII Ice Cream Sandwich update coming to Orange and T-Mobile phones April 22nd

The long ordeal that is the Samsung Galaxy SII Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update is looking set to come to an end for Orange and T-Mobile customers as the joint network has announced that they will finally be rolling out the long awaited update from the 22nd of April onwards.

Customers with the Samsung Galaxy S2 handsets have been slowly getting the updates network by network and the actual update of the handsets has been a bit of a laborious mission for fans of Samsung’s Flagship phone.

The ICS update has previously landed on the other major networks as Three, O2 and Vodafone have all had the update rolling out for a month but the Everything Everywhere group consisting of T-Mobile and Orange has been continuously delayed.

Some of the issues that delayed the ICS updates on the Samsung handset was due to Samsung TouchWiz user interface that accompanies all Samsung Android Smartphones and issues integrating the two, add to this the additional software for network branded handsets then you get a lot of variables.

A spokesperson for T-Mobile has confirmed to Techradar that “We’ve been working closely with Samsung on this, and we can confirm that we will be rolling out the ICS update for Samsung Galaxy S2 from 22nd April”

ICS itself will bring a new look to the Android OS layout as well as features such as a data usage monitor, new camera, face unlock and many under the hood changes to speed and performance.

Rumours are abound that Samsung soon to be released range of Android Smartphones (the Galaxy S3) and Tablet (Galaxy Tab 2 10.1) have all been delayed also to fine tune the functionality between the TouchWiz UI and the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update.

However it would seem the end is in sight for Orange and T-Mobile customers, so you should all check your phones on the 22nd of April for the long awaited update.
