Sprint's Galaxy S II, Epic 4G Touch to get ICS on July 12

Sprint's Galaxy S II, Epic 4G Touch to get ICS on July 12
We simply hate it when a perfectly capable (from hardware standpoint) phone is left to die with a dated software version. We. Hate. It. But, it seems this won't be the case with the phone that actually has not one, but two names - the Samsung Galaxy S II, Epic 4G Touch for Sprint.

We don't know if it's because of its larger than life name or something else, but the fact is that an internal document has leaked, indicating July 12 (that is tomorrow) as the launch date for the handset's OTA update to Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Actually, if you are an Epic 4G Touch owner and you don't get the update tomorrow - don't freak out. According to the info, users will be sent the update gradually, with the whole process expected to be completed on July 20. If you haven't received the new piece of software until July 20, then you can start thinking about freaking out.

We can't be any happier for those of you who're sporting this model, as ICS is a tremendous update of the OS, bringing a new UI (that you will not see much of), new Google apps, much better browser, lots of system improvements, new features and so on.

Now, excuse us, but we have to check if that Jelly Bean update has finally installed on our Galaxy Nexus...
