Rumors about Google's plans to roll out the new Android 4.0.5 Ice Cream Sandwich for Samsung Nexus S users soar on the Internet.
Google is quietly planning to release a new Android 4.0.5 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Nexus S smartphone. Engadget quoting sources said that the Android 4.0.5 ICS update would be released in coming few weeks.

In mid-December 2011, Google had started rolling out the Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich for Samsung Nexus S GT-i9020/GT-i9023. After several complaints about faster battery drainage and heavy processor usage, Google froze the update roll out and ceased any information on the update.
