However, existing users will have to wait for an Over The Air (OTA) update.

If you’ve decided not to wait for the GALAXY S III , opting to settle for its predecessor instead, we’ve a good news for you. No, Samsung hasn’t slashed the prices, but it’s now shipping the GALAXY S II (GS2) pre-installed with Android 4.0 .

News started spreading, as a few buyers of GS2s expressed their delight on Twitter . Reportedly, only thedevices imported in April or later are offering ICS firmware out of the box. Sadly, those who already own a GS2 in India, will haveto wait further for the OTA ( Over The Air ) update to be made available.

Earlier we had reported about Samsung selling watered-down GALAXY S IIs with model number GT-9100G in India. Thankfully, the current crop of GS2 appears to have a model number GT-I9100 , which is the same as that of the original GS2. This means that in all probability, the handset is powered by the Exynos chipset.
