Here’s a turn up for the books; the original Samsung Galaxy S will be getting an upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. You know, the phone that took ages to get involved with Froyo after many many delays.
According to Samsung Romania’s Facebook page, upgrades will start rolling out on Sunday 20th of March til the end of the month.
The translation from the page reads: “Here are some news about the upcoming upgrades to your Android running smartphones. The 2.2.1 upgrade for the Galaxy S will be available until March 20 and the Gingerbread update will roll out until the end of March.”
This comes after news that HTC promised 2.3 upgrades for last year’s Desire and Desire HD Android phones. Galaxy S owners will be pleased to hear that they’re getting the same Gingerbread love and attention too.
We’ve contacted Samsung to find out when the Android 2.3 upgrade will be coming to the UK, and whether you’ll need to update via Samsung Kies or get the upgrade over the air; we’re waiting to hear back.
Update: We’ve heard back from Samsung who said that there’s no further info on a UK update just yet. Any updates that do reach these shores are likely to be made available via Samsung Kies.
