Samsung Galaxy Note Android 4.0 Update Delayed?

Samsung promised to get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out to the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Note by the end of Q1. And while it has delivered on its promise for the Galaxy S II, it appears that it may have pushed back the Galaxy Note Android 4.0 update to sometime in Q2 as Samsung Norway is saying that its version of the Galaxy Note won’t see the update until Q2.

This could definitely just refer to Norwegian version of the device but we had heard that Norway was on tap to be one of the first, if not the first region to see the update and if true, that could mean that other regions are going to see a delay as well.

Unfortunately, Samsung Norway offered up no specific timetable for the update and because Q2 stretches from April to June, it could mean that Galaxy Note owners will be waiting several months for the update to arrive.

The delay could also spell lots of trouble for those on the Galaxy Note for AT&T.

Carriers, especially American carriers, almost always get the update after the global versions of devices and we’re assuming that the Galaxy Note’s update will be no different. So, if the global version isn’t getting the update until Q2, that could mean a summer release for the Galaxy Note’s update.

Or, gulp, even longer.

Say, Q3.

Obviously not the news that Galaxy Note owners wanted to hear but delays like this are common in the world of Android updates.

      I’ll say this. If you talk to Galaxy S II owners who got the update, the software definitely has issues and because issues have been discovered…there will probably be fixes which will then have to be tested, etc. I realize that we’re almost in Q2 but Samsung would be smart to take their time with the update. And that unfortunately means a longer wait.

    I want to ask : What actually we will get more with ICS?????? Everyone wants ICS . It must be something.
      Everything on my Note works fine.

    I don’t understand what all the fuss is about either. I did the update on my Transformer and … erm… is that it? Unexpected shut-downs, battery draining overnight? And from what I’ve seen on the Galaxy 2, you’d be hard pressed to notice any changes. My Note is running just fine, thanks.

    SAMFUCKINGSUNG!!!
    I’m one of the many who semi-bricked their Note for installing the Chinese ICS leak.  People went for the leak knowing the risks since it’s been ages and gingerbread is slow on the note. Who doesn’t want a new & better OS? A lot of devices had ICS since January and now SAMFUCKINGSUNG postpones the ICS to Q2? WTF?!!! 

    When my note gets repaired from the service center I will sell it FOR SURE. I will get a TF201 Prime. Asus is known to roll updates in awesome fashion so it’s tablet for me now.
