Good news: Samsung has announced that four of the U.S. versions of the Galaxy S smartphone will indeed be getting a Android 2.2 (Froyo) update later this year.

The Galaxy S series was announced for the U.S. market in the last two weeks, with one going to every major American wireless provider. Quite the feat.

The Samsung Fascinate, Vibrant, Captivate and Epic 4G will also be getting Adobe Flash 10.1 support. All of this was unveiled at Samsung's big Galaxy S event in New York City yesterday.

What was not announced, unfortunately, was a specific timeline for the update roll out. So if you plan on picking one of these four smartphones up when they start shipping next month, you'll be seeing Android 2.1 still.
