Owners of the Samsung Galaxy may have to wait until the end of October to get Froyo on their phones, a Facebook update from Samsung’s Spanish division suggests.
ndroid 2.2 was originally thought to be due to be rolled out to handsets this month, with a Finnish Samsung worker recently identifying the 23rd as the most likely date for the latest iteration to arrive.
However, a post on Samsung's Spanish Facebook fanpage suggests otherwise. According to the profile update, which was posted on Monday, Froyo won’t land on the handset in Spain until the end of October.
How far overseas launch dates are a reliable indicator of a UK rollout are a moot point. However, widespread problems with getting Android updates out to Britons suggests that we could be in for an even longer wait.
Launched earlier this year, the Galaxy S packs a four-inch SUPER AMOLED touchscreen display, a five-megapixel camera and expandable memory of up to 32GB.
Running Android 2.1 out of the box, the handset, which has been one of the best-received Android phones so far, also houses a 1GHz processor and Samsung’s TouchWiz custom skin.
