Currently it is expected that Galaxy Note will receive an official stable update to Android 4.0 (ICS) near the end of April this year, but still there is no confirmation from Samsung. This year Samsung has remained quite secretive in disclosing their upcoming devices and firmware updates. Already there are rumors about the release date and specs of Samsung Galaxy S3.

Although developers at XDA are working hard to get the ICS working on many capable phones before the update is rolled out by the companies.
