Samsung has rolled out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) update for UK-based Galaxy Note owners.
The upgrade was originally announced for March, but it was then pushed back to the second quarter. "Samsung UK can confirm that the [Android 4.0] Ice Cream Sandwich update for Galaxy Note has been released and will be available when approved across the networks," Samsung explained, according to The Inquirer.
The latest Android 4.0 update was rolled out in the Netherlands and Germany in May. The update is available over-the-air, as well as via Kies desktop application for Mac and PC. As promised, the update comes with the Premium Suite which includes S Note app and S Memo. The S Note app will allow users to scribble on pictures and web pages and the S Memo lets users record thier ideas and thoughts. In addition, it enables the face unlock security feature.
The update is around 349MB in size and runs the latest version of TouchWiz. It is reported that the update is available only for users who have bought the phone SIM free. Users who have a network locked device need to wait for the carrier's approval.
The smartphone's sales have topped seven million units globally. Back in March, the South Korean giant made an announcement that it made sales of more than five million Notes and hoping to sell at least 10 million Notes this year.
The Samsung Galaxy Note features a large 5.3in Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 800 x 1,280 pixels. It features a dual-core processor, running at 1.4GHz, paired with 1GB of RAM and comes with either 16GB or 32GB of storage.
