The Samsung Galaxy S has only just hit the shelves and notched up a phenomenal five stars in our Samsung Galaxy S review but it looks like it’s about to get even better. While the Super-AMOLED smartie is currently packing Android 2.1, Samsung has confirmed that it’s set for an Android 2.2 Froyo upgrade.
On Twitter, Samsung announced: “Galaxy S phones will come with Android 2.1 and be upgradeable to Android 2.2 which will support Adobe Flash 10.1.” That short but sweet announcement refers not only to the Samsung Galaxy S we’ve nabbed on these shores but the Samsung Epic (the smartphone formerly known as the Samsung Galaxy S Pro) which is only landing Stateside.
While Google announced a Nexus One Android 2.2 update yesterday, the Samsung Galaxy S, with its TouchWiz UI resting gracefully on top of Android, is in the same boat as HTC which needs to tweak Sense before it can slap Android 2.2 onto its phones.
The HTC Android 2.2 update for the HTC Desire, HTC Legend and HTC Wildfire is promised in the next few weeks. Samsung hasn’t revealed a precise date for the Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 update but hopefully we won’t have to wait too long. Check out Samsung Galaxy S review: Android 2.1 for our verdict on the current OS.
