Samsung to upgrade Galaxy Android smartphones to 2.0

The Samsung Galaxy and the Galaxy Lite should be getting an update which takes the mobile phones' version of Android up to 2.0 in February according to reports.

The Galaxy Lite, which could be called the Spica when it arrives in the UK, should be relatively simple to upgrade as Samsung has not fitted it with a custom user interface or software package of any kind.

On paper, the Spica is technically gifted enough to perform under Android 2.0, so it could soon be joining the Galaxy on our shores.

With the Mobile World Congress drawing nearer, many experts expect the Spica to be announced for the UK market in the run up to the event, but Samsung is staying tight-lipped regarding its entry-level Android smartphone.

When the update does arrive it will add in support for push email clients such as Exchange amongst other things, although it is worth bearing in mind that Android 2.0 has already been superseded by 2.1, which is exclusive to the Nexus One for the time being.
