LG And Samsung Yet To Decide On The Gingerbread Upgrade For Optimus One And Galaxy S

By 02:16 Sun, 11 Jul 2021 Comments

Android v2.3 Gingerbread is out and the update mess has returned once again. LG was the first to confutilize its users about the update, while Samsung is yet to decide the fate of the Galaxy S firmware. All this has already become quite irritating.

It was only yesterday when LG announced on its Facebook page that Optimus One won't be updated to Gingerbread. The reported reason was its lowly 600Mega Hertz (MHz) processor.

Today LG posted a message on their official website that yesterday's info was premature and the fate of the Optimus series is yet to be decided. LG is waiting for the official Gingerbread Compatibility Definition Document and assumed they will announce their upgrade plans afterwards.

Samsung feels the same way about its best-selling Galaxy S lineup. The company will wait for the official requirements, will do some research how it will affect the overall performance and experience and then will decide to update or not.

In the same time, Samsung India posted a message on its official Twitter account that Galaxy S will acquire the Gingerbread update. Go figure!

As we assumed in the beginning - it's a mess - the same one as it was with the Froyo, may be even worse. The final outcome of that buzz is still unknown. But we find it hard to believer that LG and Samsung didn't acquire all the technical information and preliminary Gingerbread builds in advance. Especially Samsung - after all, it's the manufacturer of Nexus S.
