The Samsung Galaxy S is one of the many top-notch Android smartphones that launched during an awkward and unfortunate window just after Android 2.2 was announced but before it was readily available to get prepped and come pre-installed at launch. Now owners of these phones have to play the waiting game as promised Android 2.2 updates get pegged to roll-out. August was already named as the month to look out for the Froyo upgrade to hit handsets in Samsung’s native Korea, and now word from a Samsung France representative is that the update could be reaching French Galaxy S handsets in September.
It is unclear if the update will also be ready for the rest of the world by that point, as the Galaxy S available in France is the international version available in most areas. Even if the update doesn’t roll out proper, there is a chance it will still be compatible with non-French versions of the phone, though it may take a bit of work to get it installed.
