Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) for the Samsung Galaxy S2 may finally land tomorrow, a South Korean carrier has inadvertently revealed.

Earlier this morning SK Telecom announced via Twitter that it would be rolling out the new OS upgrade to S2 handsets starting 10AM local time tomorrow.

However, soon after it inexplicably deleted the tweet, which led some to suspect that Samsung may not be happy with a network announcing the hotly anticipated update before it does.

SK Telecom Galaxy S2 ICS update

This is not the first time an announcement about ICS on Galaxy S2 has been mysteriously pulled. Last week, a Samsung Israel employee posted on Facebook that update would be landing on March 15th, before it vanished without explanation.

Samsung has already confirmed that ICS will be available for the Galaxy S2 before the end of Q1, which means there’s still over two weeks left for that to happen.

In any case, we’ll find out tomorrow whether there’s real meat to SK Telecom’s tweet or was it all just smoke and mirrors.
