Samsung Epic 4G: Froyo Update – New Details from Sprint

By Alan Ng - Jan 21, 2011

Despite the fact that the Android 2.2 Froyo update was due for the Samsung Epic 4G towards the end of December, Sprint has still not pushed out the update but they have just given a new message on Twitter to users patiently waiting for it.

As we told you last month, the official Froyo update was due to land on December 26th, as a leaked document appeared to suggest that this was set in stone and that it would include a notable number of new additions, such as Adobe Flash 10.1 Player and GPS enhancements.

But the update didnt arrive on that date, and as Phandroid reports, Sprint are still reassuring customers that the update is still due very soon – just check out the following message on Twitter below:

”Sprint & Samsung are working to release Froyo for Epic ASAP, but only after it meets rigorous testing criteria to ensure quality experience.”

Sadly though, we don’t see any new dates floating around, so ‘ASAP’ could actually mean anything – don’t forget that this is a Samsung update we’re talking about too. You should be well aware of their poor track record when it comes to official software updates.

Still, it’s good to see Sprint giving customers an update on the situation. If you have a Epic 4G on Sprint, let us know your thoughts on the delay.
