Samsung to Start Galaxy Tab Android 4.0 ICS Updates Next Month
Although it hasn’t finished updating its Galaxy smartphone range to Android 4.0, Samsung will be moving on to make a start with its range of Galaxy Tabs next month, an insider report reveals.
The all-knowing Samsung fansite Sammobile reports that Samsung will be updating most of its Galaxy Tab models during August, although a select few will kick things off in July. It states an insider as the source of the information, which is pretty comprehensive.
According to the source the update will be similar to that of the Galaxy Note – although hopefully without the problems – and will add the usual ICS theme and features along with improvements to the battery life and overall speed of each device.
The following models will be getting the upgrade to Android 4.0 over the course of the next few months:
- GT-P6210 Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0 WIFI
- GT-P6200 Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0 WIFI + 3G
- GT-P6810 Galaxy Tab 7.7 WIFI
- GT-P6800 Galaxy Tab 7.7 WIFI + 3G
- GT-P7310 Galaxy Tab 8.9 WIFI
- GT-P7300 Galaxy Tab 8.9 WIFI + 3G
- GT-P7510 Galaxy Tab 10.1 WIFI
- GT-P7500 Galaxy Tab 10.1 WIFI + 3G
So that’s the Galaxy Tab 7.7, 8.9 and 10.1 in both the Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi and 3G versions, along with the 7-inch Galaxy Tab Plus. There’s no indication as to which will get the update first, so we’d recommend to keep checking back in the Software Update section of your tablet, within the Settings app.
All models currently run on Android Honeycomb, along with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface, so the Android Ice Cream Sandwich will be their first major update.
