Samsung Confirms Galaxy S Series Phones to See Android 2.2

Samsung was in New York last night to official kick off the various Galaxy S handsets headed for your (US) carrier of choice.  Without giving us the prices and launch dates we’d been hoping for, we’re left waiting on carriers to make announcements.  T-Mobile is the first out of the gate, pegging the Vibrant with a July 21st launch and $200 price tag.   We expect the Fascinate, Captivate, and Epic 4G to offer similar prices.

Being that each of these new Android phones are running 2.1 under the hood, most people have been wondering if their respective model will see Flash 10.1 and/or Froyo.  To put your worries to rest, Samsung Mobile USA took to twitter yesterday to confirm 2.2 will be coming.

Galaxy S phones will come with Android 2.1 and be upgradeable to Android 2.2 which will support Adobe Flash 10.1 – SamsungMobileUS

It’s not like we didn’t expect this, but it’s always nice to see a handset maker come out and publicly address concerns.
