Today Sprint has confirmed that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update will be rolling out to the Samsung Epic 4G. This OTA (over the air) update will bring the Samsung Epic 4G to build number S:D700.0.5S.EI22. The update to the Epic 4G was confirmed in Sprints forums this morning.
Samsung Epic 4G Gingerbread Update Features:
- Upgrade from Android Froyo to Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- Audible Sprint AIRAVE notifications when answering a phone call
- SMS messages will be sent without area code
- Profile and PRL update
- Exchange Activesync email displaying HTML

As always Sprint will be rolling out the update in phases over the next 10 days. If you don’t see the Gingerbread update pushed to your device you can always manually check from “Settings -> About Phone -> System Updates -> Update Android”. Of course there is still a chance that even manually you will not see the update but don’t worry you will over the next week or so.
