Although Galaxy S owners in some countries should be able to update their smartphone to Froyo this month, it looks like Samsung isn’t ready to provide the update to all users.
For example, Samsung India and Samsung Spain say, via Twitter and Facebook, that they’ll be releasing Froyo updates to the Galaxy S in late October – or “by late October”, which is likely the same thing.
Update: Kamil Bakowski from Telix.pl says Poland is also included in the list of countries where Froyo is coming in October.
Meanwhile, Samsung UK still claims it’ll offer Android 2.2 for the Galaxy S this month.
I’m not sure why Samsung doesn’t provide an update to everyone at the same time, but this probably has a lot to do with local carriers and their willingness to make users happy.
Anyway, regardless of where you bought your Galaxy S from, Android 2.2 Froyo should be on it before the end of this year – even in the US, where the four major mobile carriers have different versions of the smartphone (Samsung Vibrant, Samsung Captivate, Samsung Epic 4G and Samsung Fascinate).
