Samsung Galaxy Apollo i5800 to Receive Android 2.2 Update?

The folks at Samsung Firmware have been tweeting away about a supposed Android 2.2 update slated for the Samsung Galaxy Apollo i5800. The update is said to be coming to T-Mobile Netherlands first, and could be hitting Samsun’g Kies software in about a month. The Samsung Firmware people, however, claim they will have their own build ready later tonight.

The Galaxy Apollo isn’t much of a power house, nor is it nearly as popular as the Galaxy S line of phones, so it is a bit surprising Samsung would have an update to Froyo for the phone, especially considering the long wait for the same on the Galaxy S. Stranger things have happened, though.

    Nice way to piss off half the mod community Sammy. Try giving your “flagship smartphone” Froyo before you give a half-baked feature phone it.

    @7: What makes you think that? It seems like all the Galaxy S phones outside of the US have gotten FroYo including the Fascinate on Telus in Canada. I am not a Samsung fan but it is not fair to blame Samsung for this f up.

    T-Mobile’s got Froyo on Jan 21 (tho you had to be looking for it–T-Mo didn’t exactly let Joe Public know it was out, & unlike Motorola it was not pushed OTA, but needed a PC & Samsung mini Kies), but they received the update from Samsung in mid-November so the subsequent delay was theirs, not Samsung’s fault.

  • joe

    so the behold 2 did not get 2.0 because it was not as a big seller as vibrant . yet this low range samsung get 2.2 sooner than the samsuck vibrant . Samsung has its priorities straight. huh
