Samsung Galaxy Ace owners, here’s some good news! Samsung has started rolling out the Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread update for the popular Samsung Galaxy Ace mobile phone users around the globe. According to SamFirmware, the hub of latest firmware releases for Samsung mobile phones, Samsung has already rolled out the Gingerbread update in countries like Russia and Poland via Samsung Kies software. The source has also said that the update would soon be rolled out to other regions of the world.
We think some of you might have experienced the Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread on your Galaxy Ace when it was leaked in last April. But then, the leaked firmware had its share of bugs and problems which have been rectified in this upcoming official update. The Gingerbread update will bring improvements to the the interface, security patches, better battery life, enhanced Copy-Paste functionality and smoother animations etc. However, Android 2.3.3 isn’t the latest Android version that you could install on your Ace. There is a leaked version of the unofficial Android 2.3.4 ROM available to download for enthusiasts. However one needs to think twice before flashing these unofficial ROMs because they might void the phone’s warranty in case of unsuccessful flashings.
If you want to install the Android 2.3.3 update on your Samsung Galaxy Ace, keep checking the Samsung Kies desktop software in the next few weeks. If you are lucky enough to get the update early, feel free to leave a comment here.
