Samsung Galaxy S to get Android 2.2

Samsung has confirmed their recent Galaxy S smartphone will receive an update to the Google mobile OS 2.2 at the end of September, and to all networks as well.

The announcement was made over twitter, with the news of the update from 2.1 to Froyo only arriving a few short months after the Samsung Galaxy S went on sale with their TouchWiz 3.0 overlay to the Google platform.

The tweet came from Samsung's UK mobile team, which stated "We've seen a lot of Q's about the Froyo update; it's currently in development & will be released for all networks at the end of September".

Hopefully, this means there won't be a long qualifying time for the various networks that currently support the phone. There didn't appear to be a great deal of carrier bespoke software on the Samsung Galaxy S we reviewed, which is a positive sign for a short period of testing by the networks we believe.

Android 2.2 is scheduled to arrive on the Galaxy S only a few weeks away from the release of Android 3.0, which is said to make more improvements over Froyo.
