Samsung Epic 4G Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update Leaks
By on May 17th, 2011

It was only in the first 3 months of 2011, that the different variants of the Galaxy S in the U.S got the Android 2.2 Froyo update. Galaxy S owners in Europe got a taste of Froyo way back in October, and tasted Gingerbread recently!

Up until now it was unclear whether Samsung will update the Galaxy S series of handsets in the U.S. to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, because of the huge Froyo update controversy.

Now, it looks like Samsung indeed intends to release the Gingerbread update for the at least one Galaxy S branded handset the Sprint’s Epic 4G.

The folks over at ACS forums are reporting that an Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Epic 4G has leaked on the Internet. The ROM has already been rooted and de-odexed and is available for Epic 4G owners to download and test. Notable features of the ROM include working Netflix app, working FM radio, and Google Talk with video works as well!

I hope Samsung will sort out the bugs and issues and release the official Gingerbread update for the Epic 4G soon. Hopefully, other Galaxy S branded handsets in the U.S. will also get the Gingerbread update.
