South Korean mobile phone giant, Samsung, is voiced on rolling out a new Operating System upgrade to its Galaxy S devices, as soon as next month. Android Community reported on the update via the German Android site SmartDroid.de, on Samsung making an update to the status of the Galaxy S devices to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Moreover, Samsung itself has confirmed on the device being upgraded to Gingerbread with the update ported on the device as soon as March. If this info turns out to be true, Samsung would become the first-ever smartphone maker in the market to release the Android 2.3 OS upgrade.
Furthermore, we also have a word on the Taiwanese handset vendor, HTC, with plans on upgrading a series of handset in the near future, including the whole Desire family of smartphones, but no sooner than the second quarter of the year.
According to many, Samsung would be the first company to port Android 2.3 Gingerbread over the wide range of devices, due to the reason that it has been the first to launch Gingerbread based Nexus S, but does this give an edge to the smartphone maker?
Although there is a great chance that the mobile phone maker would become the very first, chances still exist on others such as the HTC to roll out the upgrade first.
