The Samsung Galaxy Apollo is getting an update to Android 2.2, AKA Froyo, it has been claimed, bringing the handset up to speed with rival budget blower the HTC Wildfire.
According to the unofficial Samsung Firmware Twitter feed, a bump to Android 2.2 is landing initially on T-Mobile in the Low Countries at the end of February/early March. Thereafter it’ll be rolled out to the likes of us in Blighty via Samsung’s proprietary download solution Kies, the site reports.
The new functions that an update will bring to the Galaxy Apollo are as yet unconfirmed. But other phones have benefitted from the addition of tethering – the option to use your handset as a Wi-Fi mobile broadband hotspot to get online with up to five 3G internet enabled devices – plus the option to install apps to a microSD card.
Users can also probably expect general performance optimisations that make for a much slicker smartphone experience and better battery life.
