Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 UK update delayed

Galaxy S to stay put with Android 2.1 for now

Samsung Galaxy S owners in the UK will have to wait a little longer for Android 2.2, despite the company globally launching the latest Android OS update.

In this part of the world, only those in Norway, Sweden and Denmark can enjoy the benefit of Flash 10.1 support, increased processor speed and USB tethering amongst other new features delivered by FroYo.

A gradual rollout to other parts of Europe, Southeast Asia, the Middle East Asia, North America, Africa and rest of the world, are expected to follow according to the Galaxy S manufacturer.

We contacted Samsung to get some details regarding the UK delay and were given this statement from Simon Stanford, Managing Director, Samsung Mobile UK and Ireland:

“Samsung globally today has announced that Android™ 2.2 (Froyo) upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S is available. The upgrade will give users access to new features, enhanced navigation applications and improved performance. In the UK market, we are currently in final stages with our testing to ensure the upgrade is as smooth an experience as possible. Further information in relation to roll out for our customers in the UK will be available early next week.”

Rolling out Google's latest Android OS update has been far from smooth in the UK with the likes of T-Mobile, Vodafone and O2 facing Android 2.2 update problems in recent months. 

When Samsung does officially make Android 2.2 available for the Galaxy S, we'll be sure to let you know.
