5 Samsung Phones including Galaxy S and Ace getting Android Gingerbread

The official Android 2.3 Gingerbread update is going to be available for a wide range of Samsung devices from mid-May. The phones which will receive this update include the Samsung Galaxy S, Ace, Fit, Gio, Mini/Pop and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. All these phones and the tab currently run on Android 2.2 Froyo.

A few of these phones such as Galaxy Ace/Fit/Gio/Pop were launched in India just last month.

The upgrade to Android 2.3 will start with Galaxy S in the UK and Nordic countries from mid-May, and then be gradually rolled out to other European markets, North America, Southeast Asia, the Middle East Asia, Africa and rest of the world.

Samsung Gingerbread update

Features of Gingerbread over Froyo:

  • Faster Performance: The CPU consumption rate for Multimedia content will be much lower and it will also support better 3D graphics thereby making mobile gaming much more enjoyable.
  • Better User Interface: Improve usability through faster access and improved copy-and-paste functionality.

The update will be available through Samsung Kies software from the computer.

Once this update is available in India, even entry-level phones like Samsung Galaxy Pop and Fit will also be having Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

[Editor’s note: Because of some personal problems, we could not keep the blog updated for about a month. Now onwards, you can expect some Mobile ‘Gyaan’ on a daily basis.]
