Samsung Galaxy SII Ice Cream Sandwich roll-out begins

But it's Hungary, Poland and Sweden, and not the UK getting first invite

UK Galaxy SII users continued to wait for Android 4.0, but Samsung has at least begun the roll-out process with a few European countries now able to download the update

Samsung has finally begun fitting Galaxy SII smartphones with Android 4.0, with users in Korea, Hungary, Poland and Sweden the first to get their hands on that tasty Ice Cream Sandwich.

Following widespread, but eventually unfounded, speculation that the blockbusting Android phone would be updated on March 10th, Samsung waited another two days before unleashing features like Face Unlock, along with the heavily-refined UI and improved homescreen widgets.

In a post on the official Samung Tomorrow blog, the company announced the update, along with the 'gradual roll out' for the rest of the territories, which means we're still unsure when it will be arriving in the UK.

"Samsung Electronics announced the availability of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) software upgrade for GALAXY SII. The upgrade will begin in European countries including Poland, Hungary, Sweden, as well as Korea today and gradually roll out to other markets," the company announced.

The post also noted that Android 4.0 will also be coming to the Galaxy Note, Galaxy SII LTE and Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 soon. Again, there was no mention of a concrete release date.
