Galaxy Tab S2 Nougat update gets Wi-Fi certification

We confirmed two months ago that Samsung had started working on the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy Tab S2. After officially announcing the Nougat release for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge last week, Samsung shared a list of devices that are due to receive this update in the first half of 2017. The Galaxy Tab S2 is on that list and has now been given Wi-Fi certification for the Nougat update.

All 2015 models of the Galaxy Tab S2 – SM-T810, SM-T815 and SM-T817 – have paid a visit to the Wi-Fi Alliance for certification purposes. They have now been certified with Android 7.0 Nougat onboard. This means that a big step has now been taken towards the eventual rollout of said update.

Samsung has not yet confirmed precisely when it’s going to release Nougat for the Galaxy Tab S2 but it shouldn’t be too long now. Perhaps it will make us wait until the Galaxy Tab S3 is out. Its next-generation flagship tablet is expected to be launched at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona next month.
