The pink fx-9860GII comes with OS 2.02.0201

The fx-9860GII s comes with OS 2.03.5300
PCB revision: 001V02 with Macronix MX29LV320EBTI-70G
Internal model type: GY498A (subtype 0x99)

OS 2.03 doesn't support natural output like "3pi" or "4sqrt(2)".
Also, the conversion menu is missing ([OPTN]/[F6]/[F1]).
But they added the Prizm OS 1.04 automatic parentheses feature: 2:2(2+2) -> 2:(2(2+2))

Now we know why there were updated Geometry and Physium add-ins in early 2013.

Let's update our list of country-specific OS versions:
xx.xx.yxxx
y = 0 : n/a
y = 1 : Australia
y = 2 : France
y = 3 : USA and Canada
y = 4 : China
y = 5 : Singapore

I could confirm that Prizm OS 1.04.4200 and 2.00.4200 are Chinese versions.
The internal model type is LY755E (subtype 0xA5) on fx-CG20 CN.

Btw, subtype 0x55 are French Prizm OSes: 1.04.2200 and 2.00.2200
Subtype 0x55 is not used by Casio. It seems France doesn't require special Graph keyboard layouts anymore (Asn, Acs, Atn, x10^x).

Why Singapore?
The edu.casio.com fx-9860G OS 2.01 update states:
"Not approved for Singapore A level"

Approved calculators:
fx-9860G Slim
fx-9860GII s
