According to Samsung Mobile’s Romanian Facebook page, it appears that Galaxy S devices will be graced with the Gingerbread update by the end of March, and possibly along with European Galaxy S devices too. This coincides with our earlier post about Samsung announcing several updates. After translating the comment, our boys over at Android Central state that the post reads:
“The update to version 2.2.1 for Galaxy S will be available until 20 March, and Gingerbread (2.3) until the end of the month.”
I’d like to double check that translation, but I haven’t spoken Romanian in about….never. So we’ll just take their word for it or check it out with Google Translate, later. So, according to the comment it’s possible that Galaxy S devices could see the update on or by the end of that date. I hate to say it, but if this pans out, we’ll have to retract some of our previous statements about Sammy and their update shenanigans. Here’s to hoping the update does in fact arrive, as Samsung could use a little positive feedback for a change in the update department. In addition to the Galaxy S, Samsung Romania has stated that two of their budget phones should also be receiving an update (2.2). The i5500 Galaxy 5 and the i5800 Galaxy 3 will respectively receive the update on Mar 20th and Mar 31st. Feel free to leave us your thoughts in the comments below.
