Samsung recently said that the original Galaxy S i9000 and the Galaxy Tab P1000 would not be updated to Android 4.0. However, a few days later, it stated that it’s still investigating the possibility of bringing ICS to the two devices.
Now a new report from Korea is claiming that the Galaxy S i9000 will almost certainly not get Android ICS. Instead, it looks like Samsung is readying a Value Pack update for the smartphone, which should bring enhancements to make the Gingerbread experience similar to what you get with ICS (new widgets, camera improvements, improved web browsing and so on).
Of course, we still have to wait for Samsung to officially confirm this.
It wouldn’t be the first time when Samsung wants to offer a Value Pack instead of a proper OS update – it’s doing the same with the Wave 525 and Wave 533 smartphones, which can’t be updated to Bada 2.0 because of hardware limitations.
