Samsung Galaxy S: Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update Hopes

We have just told you about potential Gingerbread update plans for HTC’s collection of Android handsets, but now we have some details regarding one of Samsung’s most popular handsets, the Galaxy S.

We’re sure there are tons of users out there who are praying that the Galaxy S – still considered a new handset to many, gets an update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread at some point next year.

However, it doesn’t look too promising at the moment, especially since Samsung has really struggled to get Android 2.2 Froyo out to stock and carrier versions of the Galaxy S – and lets face it, they have really struggled haven’t they?

Without revealing any solid information, Samsung may have offered a slight glimmer of hope to Galaxy S regarding a Gingerbread update, as this recent quote picked up by Pocket-Lint explains:

When asked if the Samsung Galaxy S would be getting Gingerbread, the company had this to say:

“Such a review will be based on various factors including, without limitation, the overall effect of such Update to Samsung products, the system requirements, the structural limitations, and the level of cooperation from the component suppliers and the software licensors”. If Samsung decides to make the Update available to the users after such consideration, Samsung will use its efforts to develop such Update, which may be released to the users upon successful completion of such development”.

What do you make of that following statement? It is pretty disappointing that rather than give their users a solid answer, they are choosing to cut corners and keep users waiting – how do you feel about this? If you are a Galaxy S owner reading this, hoping to get the update – we’d love to hear what you have to say on this matter.

As always, we’ll update you when we hear any further updates on this topic.
