Samsung has begun rolling out Android 2.2, AKA Froyo, to five million Galaxy S smartphones worldwide, raising hopes that it’ll be landing on UK owners’ mobiles over the next few weeks.
A release from Samsung reveals that the update has already been sent out in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland and Denmark, with our corner of Europe next in line.
After that, it’s apparently heading to “Southeast Asia, the Middle East Asia, North America, Africa and rest of the world”.
Samsung stated: “The Android 2.2 upgrade offers voice-controlled GPS through Google MapsTM with Navigation, faster performance by JIT(Just in Time) compiler.
“Additionally, further functionalities including Search in-browser, Adobe Flash Player 10.1, improved customization options will be provided with OS upgrade.”
Froyo was first unveiled back in May. However, as with previous Android updates, phone makers have faced an uphill battle making it compatibile with custom user interfaces laid over the top of Google’s operating system.
