The Samsung Galaxy Note is an Android handest with a 5.3 inch display, a 1.4 GHz dual core processor, and a stylus for writing or drawing on the screen. It’s one of the most powerful Android phones available… but it runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread instead of the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Samsung has promised to release a software update for the Galaxy Note… but if you don’t want to wait for the official release you can head over to RootzWiki for a leaked build of Android 4.0 for the Galaxy Note.

The update doesn’t just bring Android 4.0 to the 5.3 inch handset. It also includes updated versions of Samsung’s own Android apps including the Calendar and Memo apps.

RootzWiki reports that users may experience a few crashes, but most of the Galaxy Note’s features including audio, GPS, phone, and wireless work with the new software. The Google Android 4.0 Face Unlock feature has also been added, allowing you to unlock your device by looking at the phone’s camera.
