Samsung i7500 Galaxy gets its first firmware update; Clears the FCC with US 3G

Samsung i7500 Galaxy gets update, FCC approcal

Samsung has issued a firmware upgrade for its first Android phone – i7500 Galaxy. The update brings firmware to version I7500VIAIG6, but we’re not exactly sure what’s changed after you’ve hit the button.

We do, however, know that we’re always for keeping our devices’ firmware up to date, and hence, recommend all Galaxy owners to proceed and make their smartphone run the freshest firmware possible.

You’ll need Samsung’s new PC-Studio software and all your data should remain intact, though backup is always advised. You’ll also need an Internet connection so that software could download the firmware file, which usually is not that small. If you notice and changes after the update, don’t hesitate to drop us a comment.

In related news, the i7500 got the FCC approval. Actually, that’s the “L” version (i7500L), which stands for Latin America. Hopefully, the real U.S. Galaxy will follow soon, and who knows, maybe we see at AT&T till the end of the year. Keeping your fingers crossed can’t harm…
