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.

    lol, this is too funny, we are supposed to accept the fact that they sent a tweet confirming this?
    well, they had a youtube video saying they would update the behold II to 2.x and that didn’t or will ever happen

      Exactly what I was going to say, luckily T-Mobile decided to step up and give me my upgrade back, although I am skeptical about going with samsung again, this seems to be the only decent android on their service coming anytime soon.

    "Will be upgraded" and "will be upgradeable" are two very different things.

    Yea, I'm sure Samsung won't update a device being sold on all 4 carriers along with 110 other country's. Keep dreaming if you think it won't happen.

    Look at galaxy 7500 .. they are left with 1.5 (stone age release?) and samsung bluntly said they won't provide upgrade to 2.1. HTC is far better in that term as they at least are porting to higher versions than 1.5

    Samsung Sucks, hopefully they stand behind this, instead of screwing their customers like they do pretty much every time in the past.

    They do the same with all of their products, I bought a samsung TV/monitor about a year ago, wont work with win 7 and they do not plan to create a driver to. Thanks f**cko's
