Samsung Galaxy S II for SK Telecom reportedly receiving Ice Cream Sandwich beginning March 13

While there’s been a bit of a debacle when it comes to the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the international version of the Galaxy S II by Samsung, it looks like SK Telecom in Korea is getting ready to update their devices here shortly. A tweet, courtesy of SK Telecom’s official Twitter account, “confirmed” that the update was being readied to get pushed out beginning tomorrow, March 13th. Of course, as these things usually do, the tweet was subsequently pulled, and therefore it never happened, right?

Probably not. Either way, Samsung hasn’t come forward to denounce the update’s validity as they have in the past. At least not yet. The Verge did some digging within SK Telecom’s internal website, and has independently confirmed that the wireless carrier is indeed getting ready to release the update. It is said to begin at 10AM local time tomorrow.

It seems pretty clear why Samsung would remove the tweet by SK Telecom’s official account. More than likely, Samsung wants to be the identity that announces the much anticipated update, and not the carrier, or carriers. Will there be an announcement later today? It’s certainly possible. And, does that mean the phones in other countries are close to receiving the update? One could certainly think that.

We’ll just have to wait for Samsung to officially announce something.
