Move Over Froyo, Gingerbread for Samsung Galaxy S Leaked


According to our friends at XDA-Developers, a sister-site in Poland has gotten their hands on a leaked “official” release of Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread for the Samsung Galaxy S i9000.

Just to be clear, this is the Galaxy S i9000 which is primarily availablein Europe and Asia. U.S. variants of the Galaxy S like the Vibrant, Fascinate, Epic 4G, and Captivate just barely got Android 2.2 Froyo (some are still on Android 2.1 Eclair).

We haven’t heard anything official from Samsung at this time, but we’re hopeful that this may be an indication of Samsung trying to catch up their flagship phone with the latest OS for smartphones: Gingerbread.

While this doesn’t mean other Galaxy S models will get a Gingerbread update, it’s still good news, and could mean that Gingerbread custom ROMs may be coming sooner than expected.
