In another Android 2.2 surprise, Samsung UK Mobile announced on their official Twitter account that the Samsung Galaxy S will be receiving Android 2.2 on all networks "at the end of September." They don't get specific as to whether all the networks in the UK will be receiving Android 2.2, or whether it will be all of Europe, as I believe UK networks got the international version, like most of the markets did.
Unfortunately, the safe bet seems to be that they are speaking specifically about UK carriers. For me sitting here in Germany with the international verison of the Galaxy S, I can only hope that the release in the UK will come after Germany's handsets get updated.
With HTC announcing that the HTC Desire would start updating to Android 2.2 across all Europe this weekend, it does make one hope that Samsung has something similar planned.
Android Central notes that "there has been a Froyo ROM leaked for the international version of the Galaxy S, so if you can't wait, try that. But it's nice to know that Samsung appears dedicated to its Galaxy S phones and is looking to update them as quickly as possible."
As for the US markets, there doesn't seem to be any real hints as for when to expect it, since each phone in the US is different from the international version. BoyGeniusReport adds that they have their "fingers crossed that it lands sooner, rather than later as we all can’t wait to get Flash on our phones."
