Samsung confirms all Windows Phone 7.5 handsets will get Windows Phone 7.8

by Surur - 2 years ago - @wmpoweruser

In September Esphoneblog.com posted a chart which listed Samsung’s upcoming software updates.

Contrary to the promise of an eventual Windows Phone 7.8 update to all Windows Phone 7.5 handsets the chart notes the Samsung Omnia W will not go beyond 7.10.8107.7.

Now Windows Phone Italy has been able to confirm with Samsung’s technical department that this was definitely not the case, with Samsung saying:

We can confirm that our products carrying the Windows Phone version 7.5 , are updated the [version] 7.8 but will be made ??available with terms decided by Microsoft.

While this is not the Windows Phone 8 update we were all once hoping for, I suspect it is a lot more than Samsung Android phone owners were ever able to get from the company.
