Samsung is not too unexpectedly rethinking its earlier stance after dropping the rather shocking news that it would not be updating its top-selling Galaxy S family devices with Android 4.0 ICS. Samsung is a very popular brand for Android devices in the country, and we hope it finally reveals detailed and widespread update plans, like LG, Motorola, and Sony Ericsson already have.
As noted by our earlier report, Samsung had said the hardware and software of the Galaxy S devices would make it difficult to optimize the upgrade, but that hadn’t held it back from including the similarly-specced Nexus S in its list of Ice Cream Sandwich recipients.
The latest news, that Samsung is reviewing its upgrade process for the Galaxy S family and 7-inch Galaxy Tab, was spotted in a MSN Korea report. Samsung has yet to officially confirm the truth behind this however.
The first Android 4.0 ICS devices, the Huawei Honor and Galaxy Nexus, are expected to arrive in January next year.
