For those who hoped for a US release date: sorry! There has been a lot of rumors that AT&T might be the first US carrier to get the smartphone, but we’re still not sure. However, for those of you who are lucky enough to already be in possession of the Galaxy S2, a happy news has arrived. Android version 2.3.4 has been leaked to it (image above). The version, also known as “Gingerbread” brings a lot of updates with it, such as:
- Video support for Google Talk. This is a real treat for all Android lovers, especially for the Galaxy S2, as the front camera now can be put to use. You don’t even have to be on Wi-Fi to use it (which is a must to use Facetime), you can just as well use 3G or 4G networks.
- Improved power management. Maybe this can provide the “extreme users” the battery time they’ll need? A lot of Android phones struggles to stay alive more than a day because of poor power management.
If you want to try out this new Android update, you’ll need to go through a process where you download and install a ROM. More information regarding this process can be found at the developers original thread.
