When Samsung announced that some of their devices will not be getting the much awaited Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, they announced that those devices will instead be getting a “Value Pack” upgrade instead. The “Value Pack” upgrade will bring owners of the devices some features of Android 4.0 while not actually being a full Android 4.0 update but we guess something is better than nothing, right? Not to mention with the strong Android community out there, it shouldn’t be too hard to find Android 4.0 ROMs for the affected devices.
In any case one of Samsung’s tablets that will not receive the Android 3.2 or Android 4.0 update is the original 7” Galaxy Tab. The tablet is currently running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and the Value Pack is expected to bring features such as Face Unlock, a Photo Editor app along with the ability to snap photos while recording video. At the moment the Value Pack upgrade is headed for Galaxy Tab devices in Korea but we expect the international version to be made available soon.
