Samsung Galaxy S II Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread Update Rolling Out Now

The Samsung Galaxy S II is the hottest Android phone on the planet right now. Right from its announcement at MWC, to its global release date, to its much-awaited U.S. release, the phone has impressed everyone. If you have not heard about the phone until now, chances are you are living inside a cave.


Now, Samsung has started rolling out the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread update for its best-selling Android phone until date. Aside from the minor bump in the Android version, the update does not really bring many enhancements. Some users over at XDA forums report a smoother home screen, and that’s about it.

Sadly, Samsung has not included the newest version of Google talk for Android with video-chatting capabilities. This is quite surprising, considering the leaked Android 2.3.4 firmware for the Galaxy S II had Google Talk with video-chatting capabilities.

Rumors are that Samsung is already working on the Android 2.3.5 firmware update for the Galaxy S II, with some minor tweaks and new features. Hopefully, Samsung will also include GTalk with video-chatting capability in the Android 2.3.5 firmware.

Samsung Galaxy S II owners can use the company’s KIES software to update their phone to Android 2.3.4. Right now, the update is being rolled out in the Nordic region.
