In September we wrote that Samsung will not update current generation Windows Phones from WP7.5 to WP7.8. This info was based on a chart posted to Facebook by Samsung Sweden. The chart clearly showed that the Samsung Omnia W will not go beyond build 7.10.8107.7 (original post can be found here). Turns out Samsung Sweden was wrong. Samsung Italy has now told that current generation Windows Phones from the company that run Windows Phone 7.5 will get updated to Windows Phone 7.8. This means that the Samsung Omnia M and Omnia W will both get updated to WP7.8!
Windows Phone Italy received the following statement from Samsung Italy:
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.
