The Galaxy A8 (SM-A800), Galaxy A9 Pro (SM-A910X), Galaxy Tab E 8.0 (SM-T37X) and Galaxy Tab E 9.7 (SM-T560) have all been spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance’s online database running Android 7.0, indicating that Samsung is in the midst of testing the long-awaited Nougat update for the devices.

While it’s unclear when exactly the upgrade will start making the rounds, it typically takes anywhere from two-to-twelve weeks for an update to enter distribution from the day it receives approval from the Wi-Fi Alliance— that is, of course, if the firm’s decided that it’s definitely going to release it.

Android 7.0 Nougat brings a plethora of new features to the table, including enhanced notifications, improved application permissions, new emoji and refined battery saving tools, as well as an abundance of much-needed bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations.
