Original Galaxy S gets Face Unlock

While some Galaxy S II users are waiting with baited breath for their Android 4.0 update, Samsung has surprised us with a software upgrade for the original Galaxy S. We found out last year that a lack of space on the handset's ROM meant it wasn't being considered for the Ice Cream Sandwich OS but it appears that Samsung hasn't abandoned it altogether.

Although only available in Korea so far, what it's calling a 'Value Pack' introduces some of the salient features of ICS, including Face Unlock and the ability to take pictures during video capture. The update also makes some Launcher tweaks, so while not going the whole hog it's good to see Samsung still committing to some of its older models.


If you're using the Samsung Galaxy S, keep checking your Kies software to ensure you're running the latest firmware.
