T-Mobile Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich Update Coming June 11th

The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich update will be rolling out on June 11th.

T-Mobile confirmed the fantastic news through Twitter and while it hasn’t provided any of the specific details in regards to the update, it did confirm the software’s release date which should put Galaxy S II owners minds at ease.

The update doesn’t look like it will be rolling out Over-the-Air like the updates for the HTC Sensation 4G and HTC Amaze 4G. Instead, T-mobile says that it will be available through Samsung’s Kies software.

Update: The Galaxy S II update will roll out tonight.

This has been a long time coming for Galaxy S II owners who have been waiting patiently for the update to arrive. And, as it turns out, T-Mobile looks like it will be the first major U.S. carrier to roll out Android 4.0 to its Galaxy S II device.

AT&T and Sprint have yet to do so.

The roll out comes shortly before T-Mobile is expected to launch its next major Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S II. The carrier has been rumored to be rolling out the next Galaxy smartphone sometime during the month of June, possibly on June 20th.

In addition, T-Mobile is rumored to be getting another popular Samsung smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note, at some point in July.

July 11th has been rumored as a release date.

As for Galaxy S II owners, June 11th probably couldn’t come soon enough.

Enjoy your Ice Cream Sandwich, folks.

    Hey Adam,

    Seems no one proof read your article:

    “The roll out comes shortly before T-Mobile is expected to launch its next major Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S II. The carrier has been rumored to be rolling out the next Galaxy smartphone sometime during the month of June, possibly on June 20th.”

    Hugh error in a short article and since its now June 11th and no release of Ice Cream Sandwich is available what information did you provide?

      I agree that the part of the article you highlighted is wrong but he is correct in saying the the update is today. I haven’t received my update yet which I find highly disappointing. However on twitter Tmobile USA did announce that they would offer the update today by Kies air. However with it already being 3:20 pm and no update I wont hold my breath and in fact I wouldn’t be surprised if it wasn’t available until 11:50 pm or so.

    Got ICS this morning when I plugged in my phone (T989) to my laptop, Kies fired up just fine.
    Whole process took no more than 20minutes.
    I like the added feature of being able to “restart” the phone on the power button rather than the previous version that makes you turn it off.

    Did noticed some lag or delay now on my apps. Not really sure if it’s because I may have a lot of apps or for whatever reason.
    All is good so far.
