Samsung is due to push an official firmware upgrade which includes Android 4.0.x for their flagship Galaxy S II smartphone pretty soon (end of the first quarter), and Norwegian’s seems to be among the first customers to receive it, according to a message posted by Samsung Norway on its Facebook page on Sunday.
But unofficially speaking you can get Ice Cream Sandwich today with a little experience (know how) into flashing Android ROM’s. Because a new build stable enough for daily use dated January 29th leaked out a few days ago.
According to our friends at SamMobile the new build I9100XXLPB is pretty stable for a daily use and it brings Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich to the SGS II.
SamMobile took it for a spin and tested it against the last firmware build XXLP6 and found the following changes:
Changes we found so far:
- Interface: Kind of 3D effect when scrolling.
- Battery: Lots better than early ones.
- Faster: Feels the same as LP6
- Touch: Same as LP6.
- Overall: Better score in our eyes than LP6 .
- Facelock: Same as LP6 working fine.
- Task: Same as version LP6.
