Samsung’s Tegra 2-powered Galaxy R is set to start receiving its update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich today. According to reports from SamMobile, the Galaxy R (GT-i9103), which aside form its CPU is almost identical to the Galaxy S2, will begin rolling out ICS-based firmware today over-the-air and through Kies, starting with phones sold in Sweden.
The Galaxy R ICS update should follow the same pattern as updates for other TouchWiz 4 devices, upgrading the underlying OS to Android 4.0, but leaving users on the same version of Samsung’s own user interface.
If you’ve in Europe and have a Samsung Galaxy R, head to Settings > About phone > Software updates, or fire up Samsung’s Kies desktop software to see if your ICS upgrade is ready.
