Picking up the Galaxy Ace 2? You may be in luck, as Samsung’s latest mid-range Android kit looks to be Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) upgradable, if an official promotional clip is anything to go by.

The successor to the huge-selling original Galaxy Ace lands this month, but to our disappointment runs on the creaky Gingerbread edition of Google’s platform. However, a video posted on the Samsung Hub YouTube channel suggests this won’t always be the case, with ICS supposedly on its way.

The Ace 2 is powered by an 800MHz dual-core processor, meaning it’s brawnier than the recently unveiled HTC Desire C, which sports a 600MHz single-core CPU and runs on ICS out of the box. Naturally, a few of us wondered why the Ace 2 didn’t do the same. Well, it appears that it will do, eventually.

Features the latest OS refresh brings include numerous performance and UI tweaks, enhanced multitasking, a new face detection-enabled screen unlock mechanism and Android Beam, which uses Near Field Communications (NFC) technology (available on the Ace 2) to enable fast payments for low-ticket items.

In addition to a dual-core chippy, Galaxy Ace 2 packs a five-megapixel snapper, 3.8-inch WVGA display and a range of extras.

Oh, and here’s the video, in case you were looking:
