Android 2.3 is definitely on its way to the Galaxy S, Samsung has confirmed.
Last week, Samsung appeared somewhat cagey as to plans for its best-selling Android smartphone. Asked by Pocket-Lint whether Gingerbread is on its way to the Galaxy S, it said simply that it will “review the possibility”.
However, in news that’ll console Galaxy S owners the company’s Indian division has revealed that the update is now a certainty via a Twitter posting, spotted by Unwired View.
Responding to an enquiry from a follower, Samsung stated: “Gingerbread will be available for Galaxy S users.”
Upgrading your Nexus S to Android 2.3 will bring a host of new features, include a slicker touchscreen keyboard for efficient text entry, better gaming via performance enhancements and support for gyroscope sensors.
You’ll also get support for new audio and video formats and a new power management system for longer battery life.
Last week, LG appeared to suggest that the Optimus One wouldn’t be getting Gingberbread because the update requires a processor of 1GHz or above.
But soon after the South Korean phone maker backtracked on its remarks and removed the offending Facebook update.
