Samsung confirms that Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab will not get Android ICS 4.0 update. The manufacturer clarifies that hardware limitations are the reasons as to why the phones are not being updated. It is disappointing as the Galaxy S is still being sold across various regions. Samsung states that the RAM and ROM size on these models do not adhere to work with “TouchWiz” and “experience enhancing software” streamlined for the ICS.
The statement seems to be contradictive as the Nexus S accompanies a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and same memory specifications to that of a Galaxy S. Nexus S users although are getting the update for Android ICS 4.0 via OTA. This seems really unfair on the company’s part as the first announcement for ICS upgradeable Galaxy Smartphones included the aforesaid devices.
