Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate Android 4.0 ICS Update Now Available

It looks like that official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for device will continue to come till the year end. While the customers have shifted their attention to Jelly Bean, there are many devices which still haven’t received the love of Ice Cream Sandwich. This is something a sad part and neither the manufacturers nor Google should be blamed for this delay. It’s so because Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich itself is the biggest Android update that requires a rigorous testing.Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate

Does anyone remember Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate smart phone? Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate was first announced in CES 2011 and it was launched in June last year. It didn’t make a much impression as it was low on specs and features thus this is priced at $ 50. Back in December 2011 as Android 4.0 was newly announced, Samsung included this device in the list of device to be upgraded to the Ice Cream Sandwich but didn’t said of any tentative dates of its availability.

The 4G LTE powered device has just received an unexpected surprise waiting for the customers. I am sure by seeing this, Galaxy Exhilarate users would be very much excited to update their device as soon as possible. Starting from today, AT & T will be able to push their device for the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update from Android 2.3 Gingerbread directly. Surprisingly this update isn’t available via the Over the Air and this is launched via the Samsung KIES the PC connectivity tool. Assuming that you have Samsung KIES, the latest version ofcourse on your device you should be able to update your device once when you connect your device to the PC using the original USB Cable.

The Andorid 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update includes the following features and improvements –

  • Face Unlock : Face unlock is the best feature been introduced in the Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Includes the resizable widgets
  • Camera application is improved with panoramic picture capture and capture photos while you record videos
  • Easily respond to calls with a direct text if you want to don’t attend the call
  • Improved and better web browsing
  • Includes virtual buttons in the system bar allowing navigation to Back, Home and Recent Apps
  • Swipe to dismiss notifications, tasks and browser tabs
  • Includes improved text input and spell checker
  • You have control over the network data

The eco friendly phone once after the update will see the change in baseband version from the I577UCLH3 from I577UCLB8 or I577UCLD2.

    A text from ATT about getting Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate from Android 2.3 to 4.0, made my day! The steps for installation are very simple and clear. I had problems installing Kies initially, but then after a reboot, it got installed smoothly. The whole process took a bit more than couple of hours. The new installed version is smoother, smarter and more handy. The only complaint I would have is, it still doesn’t slide the top menu horizontally to view more options viz. to enable Packet Network, shortcut to settings et al., and is still has the static one with WiFi, GPS Bluetooth.

    I had always wanted to have Android 4.0 and knowing it wouldn’t be that soon on this phone, the morning text from ATT was complete surprise. Overall, I am Happy to have Ice-cream sandwich on my phone now! 🙂
