This could be bad news for Samsung Galaxy Note users like me. Samsung promised to release the official ICS update for Galaxy Note by 1st Quarter of this year. Unfortunately, Sammy’s pushing it a little bit later within April to June 2012.
The good news is that it won’t be a very simply upgrade from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich. The official update will feature a mega-update, which they call “Premium Suite” to Galaxy Note’s most celebrated program, the “S-Memo”. The update will also include enhancements and tools that could put its most famous appendage “S-pen” to further use. Check out the video below for more information.
Samsung promises “an entirely new look and feel to Android on Galaxy Note, with a more intuitive user interface that includes a redesigned App menu for easier multi-tasking. The upgrade also introduces innovations such as Face Unlock, Snapshot, Android Beam and others” with the update.
Currently, I’m testing the leaked Chinese version of the ICS for Samsung since January 2012. Unfortunately, I will have to push my review further to April 2012 if Samsung releases the official update within that month.
