Android 3.0 "Gingerbread" Coming In October, Bringing Revamped UI and Minimum Requirements

Labels: , ,

There's a pretty juicy rumour going around about the upcoming Android 3.0 "Gingerbread" update. Take it with a grain of salt though, considering that this is coming from Mobile-Review's Eldar Murtazin. Everything you really need to know is below, courtesy of Unwired View. They're basically all great news. Google is looking to implement minimum hardware requirements for Android 3.0 including a display of at least 3.5-inches, a 1GHz CPU, and 512MB of RAM. The UI is said to be revamped seeing how they did hire the key guy in the WebOS development. We could also see a bunch of Android tablets later this year because there'll be a new 1,280 a 760 resolution which will support devices with "displays of 4" and higher." Like I said, check it all out below.

  • Android 3.0 Gingerbread will be released in mid- October (around 15 -16th), 2010. First handsets shipping in November/December – for the Holiday Season.
  • Minimum hardware requirements for Android 3.0 devices are: 1GHZ CPU, 512MB or RAM, displays from 3.5” and higher.  (We all, of course, heard that Android handsets with 2GHz CPU’s are coming)
  • New 1280×760 resolution available for the devices with displays of 4” and higher. (Anyone thinking about Android tablets now? )
  • Completely revamped user interface. If you want to get a feeling of what Android 3.0 Gingerbread UX is like, check out the Gallery  App on Nexus One. The same overall feel, light animated transitions,etc. Natively, through all the UI.
  • Android’s split into 2 branches becomes official. 3.0 for top of the line/high end devices. Cheap, low-end mass market handsets will keep Android 2.1/2.2
