Samsung Galaxy S Value Pack gives Android 4-like features

Galaxy S gets Value Pack in Korea

Samsung started giving Galaxy S owners a consolation for the lack of a true Android 4.0 update with a Value Pack update in its native Korea. The addition provides some 4.0-like features on top of Android 2.3, including Face Unlock and a photo editor. More unique are the ability to take still photos in mid-video, improvements to the app launcher and folders, and the ability to change the font size for some apps.

A Smart Receipt setup icon is also available, although explanations of what that entailed weren't available.

It's not known if the Value Pack will reach other countries and carriers, although the upgrade is probable for at least Galaxy S models in other countries running Samsung's stock interface. US phones may be some of the last to get the update as they usually have customize hardware and firmware that requires extra testing. [via Samsung Tomorrow]
