Samsung Galaxy S to get ICS like features

Samsung Galaxy S premium updates

Samsung Galaxy S premium updatesSamsung Galaxy S will get some value afterall, this comes after the long history of user complaints that they were actually ignored by Samsung when the mobile giant was considering which ones of the Galaxies are going to get Android 4.0 ICS upgrade. Samsung Galaxy S II has already started receiving the updates depending on the markets and carriers. SSangHyuck Nam, one of the developers responsible for the Samsung Galaxy S firmware upgrade says the firmware upgrade that Galaxy S will get, though still Android Gingerbread, will satisfy users as they will provide very intuitive features.

“In terms of the firmware, five additional functions were added. We expect people will be happy with the upgrade since we tried to make the functions as similar to those found in ICS as possible,” SSangHyuck said in an interview.

The firmware upgrade will include features such as Face unlock and blinking for added security on the device, Photo editor and Beta Font for font size control and Snapshot, an app that allows a user to take photos while recording video. Also to be included in the upgrade is ‘S Go Launcher Pro’ which allows users change the main screen and the icons, for a personalized smartphone. Gingerbread firmware Upgrades to the Galaxy S, Galaxy K, Galaxy U, Galaxy tab 7inch, Galaxy M Style and Galaxy S Hoppin are coming very soon, time not fixed, could be in Q2 together with the Galaxy Note premium apps update.
