Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab may get a “Value Pack” instead of a true Ice Cream Sandwich update

Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab may get a “Value Pack” instead of a true Ice Cream Sandwich upda
Are the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab getting updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich? “Yes, but not really” appears to be a possible answer to that question judging by a post on the Korean web portal Daum, which Google Translate was kind enough to interpret for us.

So, instead of a full-fledged Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade, Samsung may be working on a “Value Pack” software update for the Galaxy S and the Galaxy Tab. It is expected to bring as much of the benefits that ICS delivers without the need for installing Android 4.0 onto any of the two devices. It is said that improved multitasking and faster web surfing are on the list, as well as a new set of widgets and a number of camera improvements. Adding the Face Unlock feature in the pack is not out of the question.

Still, we would recommend taking the above information with a grain of salt for now. Also, crossing your fingers in hopes that Samsung finally makes up its mind probably won't hurt.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
