Samsung Galaxy S NOT To Get Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update In March (Officially)
By on February 26th, 2011

Rumors are floating around on the Internet that the Samsung Galaxy S will get Android 2.3 Gingerbread update sometime in March. The rumor of this source is this tweet from @m4gic. Apparently, the guy went to the Sammy’s European headquarter in Frankfurt where he got this piece of news.

Now, I know rumors spread like fire on the Internet but this is a bit too much. I own a Samsung Galaxy S and am a more than frequent visitor of the Galaxy S sub-forum over at XDA. Now, firmware leaks are a very common thing over the Galaxy S forum on XDA. In fact, the first Android 2.2 based firmware for the Galaxy S leaked nearly 8 weeks before the official’ firmware was released by Samsung.

If Samsung does intent to roll out the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Galaxy S by March then at least one Gingerbread based firmware for the handset must have already leaked. Sadly, that is not the case here! Many people may argue that firmware leaks are no big deal and it may happen that a Gingerbread based firmware for the Galaxy S won’t leak.

However, I personally feel that Samsung does intentionally leak some of these firmwares so that it can get the feedback of the modding community about the firmware. Samsung has in fact incorporated some of the changes which the modding community suggested it!

So according to me, the Samsung Galaxy S won’t get the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update in March. If by any means it does, it will be either via CM7 (unofficial), which is progressing very nicely and can be easily used on day-to-day basis, or via a leaked Gingerbread firmware.
