Just as we were getting ready to get it on March 15, we got even better news. Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II will be receiving an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on March 10 – less than 48 hours from now.

The globally available I9100 will be the only version, which will receive the update at the moment. The TouchWiz-ed firmware will be available both on Kies and OTA.

As you can see in the screenshot above, Face Unlock, Android Beam, and mobile data usage are among the major improvements which will come with the update. In a rather interesting fashion, flash support and Bluetooth 3.0 HS will not be supported due to an “ICS OS feature.”

Samsung also warn against updating your device while running a customized or unofficial firmware on it. Apparently, unexpected problems might arise during installation.

It is needless to tell you that we will be checking regularly our office I9100 for the update. In case you upgrade your own handset, feel free to drop us a line with your impressions in the comments section.

Thanks to everyone, who sent this in!
