Samsung now rolling out Nougat update for the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 in the US

Following in the footsteps of T-Mobile and Verizon, Samsung has started rolling out the much-anticipated Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Wi-Fi variant of the 8-inch Galaxy Tab S2 (SM-T713) in the United States.

The upgrade itself weighs in at a little over 1.2GB and transports all of the changes you’d expect to find bundled into Nougat, including additional battery saving features, enhanced notifications and improved app permissions.

Unfortunately, it’s unclear whether the firm is planning to distribute a similar update for the 9.7-inch model of the Galaxy Tab S2 (SM-T813), but we’re guessing it is, seeing as both of the devices hit the shelves in the region at the same time.

For those in need of a refresher, the Galaxy Tab S2, which was released back in September, 2015, sports an Exynos 5433/Snapdragon 652 CPU, 3GB of RAM, 32/64GB of internal storage, an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 4,000mAh non-removable battery.

To see if the OTA is ready for your device, head into Settings » About Device » Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can wait until you receive an alert instructing you to download the update, though that typically takes a little longer to arrive.
