Having prompted consternation among Galaxy S owners earlier with its UK division’s reluctance to confirm an Android 2.3 Gingerbread update would be released for the Super AMOLED smartphone, Samsung has changed tune. The Samsung India Twitter account is busy reassuring concerned Galaxy S owners that the handset will indeed be getting Gingerbread, though right now there’s no timeline for the update’s release.
That timeline is what will be worrying most Galaxy S owners, considering the delays involved in Samsung getting Android 2.2 Froyo out of the door. Still, given the Nexus S is practically identical in terms of core hardware, it would’ve been strange for Samsung to claim the Galaxy S couldn’t manage Gingerbread where the new Google phone can.
