Samsung Galaxy S Might Get Android Value Pack

12/31/2011

Recently we reported that we have seen a Samsung Galaxy S running an Ice Cream Sandwich, which got our hopes high for the smartphone to receive the update. However, it seems that this isn't going to happen as we thought it would...

Even though Samsung Galaxy S isn't scheduled for Android Ice Cream Sandwich update, Samsung is offering it's users the next best thing. We are talking here about Android Value Pack, that will bring some features from Ice Cream Sandwich to the famous smartphone.

 

We have seen Android 4.0 running on this handset and all we can say is that it's running quite nice, so the update could be done. It seems that Samsung actually intends to port some Ice Cream Sandwich features to a current Android 2.3 ROM, which could seem as something in the middle between Gingerbread and ICS.  We are hoping to find features such as multitasking, better web surfing, camera tweaks and new widgets.

 

According to SammyHub, this isn't the first time Samsung is does something like this, they also offered a Value Pack upgrade to the Wave 533 and 522 devices instead of offering a Bada 2.0 upgrade.

Last week Samsung detailed the reasons for making such decisions, pointing to the memory issues that Galaxy S has, but at least Galaxy S users got some good news!
