Once again we turn our attention towards the Motorola Droid RAZR, RAZR MAXX and the Ice Cream Sandwich update. As a brief recap, while other handsets currently on the market got their Android 4 update in the past few months, including the Samsung Galaxy S2, the HTC Sensation and the HTC Amaze just to name a few, we were still wondering about whether or not we’ll get to see the two RAZR handsets updated in the near future, or at all.
Motorola Droid RAZR, RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4 ICS)
Well, things got clearer a few days ago when Motorola updated its ICS timeline and to our surprise the Droid RAZR and MAXX are now set to get their Android 4 update sometime during Q2. Well, the good news don’t end here and now it seems that the update will come with a feature which some of you will find quite welcomed.
According to those who got their hands on the latest leaked ICS version for the Droid RAZR, it appears that the upcoming update will enable global capabilities, and as you can see by the screenshot above we will get to choose between GSM/UMTS, LTE/CDMA and Global network mode.
I suppose this would make up for the long time we’ve waited for the update, as long as the manufacturer keeps its promise and we’ll not have to deal with another delay.
Nevertheless, by the looks of it things are looking quite well for the RAZR / RAZR MAXX, the update has been successfully tested so all that remains now is to wait for Motorola to make the next big step and announce a more definitive roll-out date of the update.
Until then, we’ll keep an eye on the RAZR and RAZR MAXX and we’ll keep you posted. Stay tuned.
Thanks DroidLife for the heads-up regarding the Motorola Droid RAZR, RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich to bring Global Roaming.
