Samsung Galaxy S Might Get Android Value Pack as ICS Replacement

Although Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab aren’t scheduled for an Android Ice cream Sandwich update, Samsung might offer the public the next best thing. I’m talking about an Android Value Pack, that will bring a couple of the ICS features to the famous smartphone and tablet from last year. The info came out of Korea courtesy of a Daum report.

We’ve recently seen Android 4.0 running on the Samsung Galaxy S and I have to say that I was behaving decently, to say the least, so a full update can be done. It appears that Samsung actually intends to port some Android Ice Cream Sandwich features to a current Android 2.3 ROM, maybe as a middle way between Gingerbread and ICS. Features such as multitasking, better web surfing, new widgets and camera tweaks are expected in this value pack.

SammyHub is saying that this is not the first time Samsung does something like this, since they chose to offer a Value Pack upgrade to the Wave 525 and Wave 533 devices instead of offering a Bada 2.0 update. Samsung detailed last week the reasons for not getting Android 4.0 to the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S, because of memory issues, but now we finally get some good news…
