Samsung released the Android 2.2 FroYo update for the Galaxy S in October, last year. However, it was only at the beginning of this year that the Samsung Galaxy S variants in the U.S got the Android 2.2 Froyo update.
Recently, Sammy started rolling out the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Galaxy S and other Galaxy branded devices over the different regions of the world. However, Samsung did not mention anything whether the various Galaxy S variants in the U.S will get the Gingerbread love or not.
Now, the folks over at SamFirmware have managed to get their hands on not one, but two, Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread based firmware for the AT&T version of the Galaxy S the Samsung Captivate. One firmware (I897UCKF1) carries the build date of June 8th, while the second one (I897UCKE3) has a recent build date of June 26.
The carriers in the U.S. are evil about rolling out Android updates. They play a major role in delaying Android updates of various handsets, and if they do, load it up with lots of bloat ware. While this firmware leak confirms that the Captivate will get the Gingerbread update, don’t expect the update to land anytime soon.
