A couple of weeks ago, Samsung had announced that after it starts rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy S II, it will also roll-out a new firmware update for the Galaxy S. The new firmware update will not bring Ice Cream Sandwich update, but instead is a ‘value pack’ upgrade which contains some Ice Cream Sandwich.
This includes Face Unlock, an improved TouchWIZ launcher, a new lock screen, faster performance and the ability to click pictures while shooting a video. The Photo editor found in the Galaxy S II, is also bundled in this update. At the moment, this ‘value pack’ firmware update is only available for the Galaxy S owners in Korea.
Samsung will hopefully start rolling out the update to other regions of the world soon. To install the firmware on their handset, users need to use Samsung’s KIES 2.0 software. Sammy will also be releasing the ‘value pack’ firmware update for other Android powered Galaxy handsets including the Galaxy M, Galaxy Tab and Galaxy K/U.
