We all already know that the next version of Android OS, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will roll out by the end of 2011. We all also know that it is a mixture of the latest tablet-optimized version of Android, the Android Honeycomb, and the latest smartphone-optimized version of Android, the Android Gingerbread. Since it is a mixture of those two versions, you might want to ask what device that will run on it when it rolls out. Will it be a smartphone or a tablet. The most possible answer is a smartphone, because as you might have already known, rumors say that the upcoming Samsung Google Nexus Prime will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Those rumors are strong, since the Google Nexus phones are the smartphones chosen by Google itself to carry its latest versions of Android for the first times.
Well, aside from that, I think you read this because you want to know what will the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich bring. A couple of details have already been revealed at Google I/O. One of them is the new camera software that can do face tracking. As you might have known, the face tracking features always need a decent processing power to be done. So, I suggest that the requirements for the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be quite high. Then, what will happen to those low-end Android smartphones and tablets? This will be contrary to Google’s attempts to make its updates available to all of Android devices.
However, if those high requirements issue is right, only some Android smartphones and tablets such as the Samsung Galaxy S II, Motorola Droid Bionic, and HTC Evo 3D that will be safe to get the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
