Last month we got news from Samsung that the roll-out for the Samsung Galaxy Note Ice Cream Sandwich update, in Canada, has begun (on select devices). Despite all that, we haven’t heard reports from Galaxy Note owners indicating that update has indeed hit the waves and everyone was starting to wonder whether or not the update has actually been deployed as Samsung stated.
Samsung Galaxy Note Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4 ICS)
All that aside, at the beginning of June Telus was able to give us a timeslot on when the Galaxy Note owners should be able to install the update: early-July. Now it appears that the Canadian carrier has modified their upgrade schedule and we finally have an exact roll out date.
As the screenshot above suggests, the Android 4 update for the Telus Samsung Galaxy Note will roll-out starting with July 13th, placing us roughly three weeks away from the launch date.
That’s quite a lot to wait to be honest, but it not necessarily a bad thing because, apparently, the Ice Cream Sandwich update on the International version brought along loads of bugs that made the device unstable and slower. That being said, perhaps Samsung will sort things out in the following weeks and Telus will be able to deliver the update once all these undesired “features” have been dealt with.
AT&T might be in the same boat as well and we’ve speculated that the reason why the US carrier has not launched the update thus far might be simply because the official Android 4 build seems to cause lots of problems.
Fortunately for those residing in Canada, Telus was able to pinpoint an exact launch date, which cannot be said the same about AT&T.
We’ll keep an eye out on how the story develops and we’ll keep you up to date, so stay tuned.
Thanks AndroidCentral for the heads-up regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note Ice Cream Sandwich update at Telus.
