Samsung Galaxy ICS

Finally a good news for Samsung Galaxy SII owners, Samsung has recently released official Android 4.0 (Ice-cream Sandwich) update for SGS2. The ICS firmware is dated 9th March 2012. Although Samsung has taken a little bit of time for releasing the ICS update still this firmware has no bluish ICS interface and is very much similar to Android 2.3.6. Galaxy SII owners must be expected something better, I, myself being a Samsung Galaxy S2 user, wanted a little more from them. Right now we can only wait for another update with few new features.

The firmware is based on I9100XXLPQ (4.0.3) with modem XXLPQ and CSC OXALPQ, while the kernel build is 3.0.15. Although the update has not taken place worldwide and is limited to certain countries, but still if you want to try this ICS final build from Samsung, then you can have a look at XDA Forum or SAM Mobile, from where you can download this firmware along with the instructions for flashing/updating your Samsung Galaxy S2.

Samsung Galaxy S4

Now this is quite interesting, everyone is waiting for the release of Samsung Galaxy SIII and there is a rumor that Samsung is planning to go for Samsung Galaxy S IV (S4) as well. Though it seems to be quite unbelievable and unreliable. Recently I was in a tour with my friends and I met with a guy who is currently working in Samsung. We had a conversation about Samsung Galaxy SII and upcoming device SIII. I was totally amazed when he told that Samsung is also planning to launch Samsung Galaxy S4 in near future. Although he was not at all interested to provide any information about Galaxy SIII or S4, but when I doubted on him regarding Samsung Galaxy S4, he told that a team of his senior officers are working on the specs and model of Samsung Galaxy S4 and he also showed me few projected models for Samsung Galaxy S4, which he had in his laptop. One of the most considered model is below.

On promising that I will not disclose his name, he let me know that Samsung Galaxy S4 might have 3D display and 3D camera. The device will have only one physical button on the right hand side, which is a POWER BUTTON along with one sensor touch button for camera. Left side of the device has sensor touch buttons for volume up and volume down. Again there are four sensor touch buttons at the bottom of the screen.

After seeing the above image, it seems that front camera and proximity sensor has been shifted to right for better management. The screen size is still undecided. He did not provided any information about CPU, RAM, memory, etc. The knowledge he had about this device makes me feel that this rumor is quite promising. I have taken that person in my circle so that we can get more information about Samsung Galaxy S4. I will update this post if I will get some more info.

Although, the knowledgebase and projected model pics he had shown me in his laptop about Samsung Galaxy S4 seems quite promising but still we cant confirm that this is trustable at this stage.

Google has given the Android.com website a complete makeover to make it look a little bit nicer for everyday consumers. In true Google fashion the website makes good use of HTML5-based animations on the screens of the generic looking Ice Cream Sandwich tablet and Galaxy Nexus. There is now a whole section based around what’s new in Ice Cream Sandwich for the average user along with what great apps are available on the Android Market and direct links to the Android Market web-store. There’s plenty more reading material there, so go check it out now!

The latest step in bringing Google-based unification has arrived. The Chrome browser is here on Android. This beta version is currently only available for that elite crowd of ICS phones and tablets and like its desktop progenitor, the synced settings and bookmarks are all in tow. Expect to see a new, more natural mobile view of the tab system. It’ll also remember what you were last looking at on your desktop Chrome browser, and sync it across to your mobile device — it’s like Kindle or iBook’s bookmarking system, but for the web. Your autocorrect content from the desktop is similarly synced. Expect to see the reappearance of link previews, something you may recall from the results of any Google searches, offering a brief thumbnail of a link’s destination. We’re giving it a good play-around right now, but while we get our first impression up, check the quick intro video after the break.

Update: Here’s our hands-on. With video, naturally. Another more in-depth video from Google can also be found after the break.
