Samsung has promised to launch its Galaxy S smartphone on each of the top four carriers in the United States under a different name. For T-Mobile, they will launch the Samsung Vibrant. AT&T will launch the Samsung Captivate. Sprint will launch the Epic 4G. Verizon will launch the Samsung Fascinate. All four phones share a couple of main features such as a 4 inch Super AMOLED display, a 1 GHz Hummingbird Cortex A8 processor, and a camera that captures 720p. In addition, every phone will initially run on Android 2.1. Samsung could have made a lot of buzz by announcing that all four phones will run Android 2.2 out of the box, but instead Samsung reported all four phones will be upgraded to Android 2.2 later on. The announcement came at their press event today, but they also tweeted the information. The message can be read below:
Galaxy S phones will come with Android 2.1 and be upgradeable to Android 2.2 which will support Adobe Flash 10.1
All we can hope for at this point is for Samsung to upgrade every phone to Android 2.2 as soon as possible after it launches. Of course, all the phones are equipped with Samsung TouchWiz 3.0, so it might take a little longer to make Android 2.2 work with it.
