Now getting Android 4.0: Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket
The Android 4.0 update season is in full bloom. We have both the Global Samsung Galaxy S II and the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket getting Ice Cream Sandwich on Monday, while the Samsung GALAXY Note gets Android 4.0 and the Premium Suite update on Tuesday. The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket brought a larger screen version of the Samsung Galaxy S II to AT&T customers. Both Sprint and T-Mobile offered their customers a version of the Samsung Galaxy S II with a 4.52 inch screen while AT&T's variant offered the smaller 4.3 inch screen. All four have a rather disappointing 206-207ppi pixel density brought on by the large sized panel and a WVGA resolution.

Unlike the dual-core 1.2GHz Exynos processor under the hood of the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II, the Skyrocket offers up a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and native storage of 16GB. A 32GB capacity microSD slot is aboard along with an 8MP camera that captures video in 1080p at 30fps. The new software version to be looking for is i727UCLF6.

Because this is not an OTA update, you will have to connect through your computer using Kies to install the update. It's going to be a busy two days for AT&T customers using a couple of Sammy's finest. The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket today and the Samsung GALAXY Note on Tuesday. As usual, no need to be shy. After you've completed the update, let us know what you think by posting your comments in the box below!

My faith is now restored that we the people may see Jellybean on our GS3's in maybe two months.

Ha! I'd be surprised if jelly bean hits the s3 by November. Took 8 months to get it on my s2. I have little faith now... OF COURSE, i am speaking of us variants.

Disappointing pixel density? I always thought the screens on all the S2 variants looked really good.

Got ICS on my Note now. I was hoping for a bit more of a visual refresh, but the added features are extremely nice. Face unlock and multitasking will get a lot of use from me. :)
