Samsung Epic 4G Android 2.2 Update To Start Rolling Out From 21st Feb
By on February 18th, 2011

The Samsung Galaxy S has four variants in the U.S. the Samsung Captivate available on the AT&T network, Fascinate on the Verizon network, Epic 4G on Sprint’s network and the T-Mobile branded Vibrant. All the four variants have some subtle changes compared to the original Galaxy S.

However, one major difference is that the original Galaxy S got its Android 2.2 update nearly 4 months ago, but 3 out of the 4 U.S. variants of the Galaxy S are still rocking Android 2.1. T-Mobile rolled out the Android 2.2 update for the Vibrant nearly a month ago, but sadly users need to use Samsung’s KIES software to update their handset.

Now, it looks like another U.S. variant of the Galaxy S the Sprint branded Epic 4G will be getting its Android 2.2 FroYo update next week. The folks over at Android Police have managed to get their hands on some leaked internal documents of Sprint. The documents state that the Android 2.2 update for the Epic 4G will start rolling out from the beginning of next week i.e. Feb 21.

Unlike the Vibrant, the Epic’s 4G Froyo update will be an OTA (Over-The-Air) one. Along with Android 2.2, the update is also expected to bring improvements to the GPS performance of the device and Bluetooth device support.
