Samsung is expected to release the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update within six-eight weeks from now. At the Samsung Galaxy Note launch event, an executive stated that the company plans to roll out Gingerbread update for its entire Galaxy series smartphones, which means it would include the ones that are yet to get Gingerbread update from India as well.
The delay in receiving updates is certainly frustrating for many Android smartphone users who are yet to enjoy the Android 2.3 Gingerbread which was announced almost a year ago. With the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the scene is going to be different and also not all devices would be getting the update.
Samsung is going to ensure that all Android 2.2 Froyo running smartphones — Galaxy Fit, Galaxy Pop, and Galaxy Mini will get the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update before the end of this year. Apparently Samsung aims that all Android smartphones in India should run Gingerbread update.
We hope that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update hits Galaxy smartphone soon before the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich roll out.
