The upgrade will begin initially in the European countries including Poland, Hungary, and Sweden, as well as in Korea, and will gradually roll out to other markets. The Android 4.0 OS upgrade for GALAXY Note, GALAXY SII LTE, GALAXY R, GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus, 7.7, 8.9 and 10.1 will come thereafter.

The Korean handset manufacturer completed upgrading the GALAXY devices to Gingerbread last year by providing software upgrades to both Froyo and Gingerbread.

The company will also offer Android 2.3 Gingerbread firmware upgrades for GALAXY S, GALAXY Tab 7'', GALAXY S Plus, GALAXY S SCL(Super Clear LCD), and GALAXY W by the ending of March.

The availability and scheduling of the software upgrade and specific models upgradable to Android 4.0 will vary by market and wireless carriers’ requirements.
