“We are passionate about providing the best possible mobile experience to Canadians and the upgrade to Android 4.0 will offer an improved user experience for Samsung GALAXY devices,” said Paul Brannen, Vice President Mobile Communications at Samsung Canada, in a statement. “We expect that our customers will enjoy an enhanced experience with their GALAXY device through this upgrade and we remain committed, alongside our carrier partners, to satisfy our customer needs”.
Samsung says Ice Cream Sandwich brings a fresh look and feel to its Galaxy devices.
The upgraded OS sports a new user interface with improved multi-tasking, notifications, Wi-Fi hotspot, a full Web browsing experience and innovations such as Face Unlock, which uses the front facing camera for facial recognition to unlock the smartphone.
The availability and scheduling of the software upgrade and specific models upgradable to Android 4.0 will vary slightly by market and wireless carriers’ requirements.
