Samsung has finally started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for its Galaxy Note GT-N7000 smartphones in India. While the Galaxy S II GT-I9100 owners continue to rub their hands, the Galaxy Note users get lucky with this massive update. The new Android 4.0 ICS update also brings slightly tweaked TouchWiz layer.
Earlier this month, The Mobile Indian reported about the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update bring rolled out for the USA and Europe based Samsung Galaxy Note owners. Now, Samsung has quietly made the Android 4.0.3 ICS update build IML74K available for Indian Galaxy Note GT-N7000 owners through Samsung Kies software.
India based Galaxy Note users need to connect their smartphone to the Samsung Kies desktop manager and check for the update. Jonas Bashige, user based in Bangalore, shared a screenshot of the Galaxy Note updated with Android 4.0.3 ICS over Twitter.
Apart from the other usual improvements, the new update brings a new series of S Pen supporting widgets which are clubbed together to form a Premium Suite.
For those who haven’t received over-the-air notification about the software update on their Galaxy Note can try connecting it to Samsung Kies desktop software. If the update doesn’t show up then the users need to try may be later.
Surprising part is that despite of the fact that Android 4.0.3 ICS update is available for Galaxy S II GT-I9100, the Indian users continue to wait for the update. Hopefully in coming weeks, these Galaxy S II users will start receiving the Android 4.0 ICS update.
