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.

  8. @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.


  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Probably so the Muslim community could be comfortable with it before anyone else. Surprise, Surprise, SURPRISE!!
