April 27th, 2012, 10:14 P.M. — Verizon’s Motorola Droid Razr on the verge of getting ICS? Plus, Samsung Galaxy S2 variants in United States still stuck with Android Gingerbread operating system.
Android, the most popular mobile platform in the world, is heading to a more unified ecosystem and Android Ice Cream Sandwich, or Android 4.0, could be the start of the revolution. However, some smartphones are not yet running the new operating system, including the high-end devices of Samsung, Motorola, LG and HTC.
This week, surprisingly, a leak confirms that one of the most popular Android phones of Verizon is next in line to get Android ICS update, the Motorola Droid RAZR. According to Droid Life, Motorola and Verizon are already testing the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system for the Droid Razr, with build number 6.14.84 and has a build date of April 26, 2012.
The Android-centric blog site thinks the new build may be the “official” build, or the final operating system version that will run on the high-end Motorola smartphone.
If true, then the Motorola Droid Razr might get the Android ICS update over the air by the end of this quarter (maximum), or as early as May — surpassing Samsung’s Galaxy S2 devices, apparently.
But a leak also posted this week suggests that Sprint’s own Samsung Galaxy S2, the Epic 4G Touch, is also on the verge of getting Android 4.0 ICS. The leak, described in XDA forum as “near official,” was posted on Wednesday. For starters, rooted Epic 4G Touch owners can now manually install the operating system using a third-party Windows application called “Odin.”
