Samsung Galaxy S users were left in the dark earlier this year after they were told by Samsung that they would not be getting an official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. But thanks to consumer power, Samsung agreed to offer their Galaxy S a “Value Pack” that would bring Android 4.0 features to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It looks as if this update to now rolling out to users in its native Korea.
Some of the new features include:
- Face unlock with blink detection – to stop the phone being fooled by a photo of a person
- Ability to take photos while recording video
- A new photo editor
- Font size adjustments in some applications
- Improvements to how folders work and the launcher
- Smart Receipt installation icon
While it is already available to those in Korea it is unclear when (or even if) the Value Pack will make its way to Europe and the USA.
Kitguru says: Even though Samsung’s Nexus S smartphone with near identical hardware got an Android 4.0 update, it is good to see Samsung keeping their customer base satisfied.
