French Android site LesMobiles has reportedly received information that the Samsung Galaxy S will be upgraded to Android 2.2 in September. August has already been chosen as the month to roll out Android 2.2 for the Galaxy S in South Korea. The timing of the update for France's variant (international) may be the same date for many other countries with the international variant.
UnwiredView translated the page from Les Mobiles and writes that:
Now a spokesperson for Samsung France has said that the update to Froyo is scheduled to take place in September in France. Whether only phones bought in France will get the update in September is unclear.
Android Central notes that unfortunately, this news won't "do much for those of you with brand-new Samsung Captivates or Vibrants" For users in America, each network has their own different variant, so it is unlikely that one update will work for every handset. Unfortunate, but the blame for that likely rests with whoever (likely each carrier) decided that each carrier's phone needs to be different than the competition's.
However, Phandroid importantly notes that "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."
