T-Mobile will update its Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime and Galaxy Tab E to Android 8 Oreo

T-Mobile recently revealed that it's going to update two ofits affordable Samsung devices to Android 8 Oreo: Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime, and SamsungGalaxy Tab E 8.0 (both launched last year with Android 7 Nougat on board). This isnewsworthy because cheap phones and tablets are often neglected when it comesto new software updates.


The Galaxy J7 Prime and Tab E are joining a bunch ofhigh-end Samsung phones in the waiting line for Oreo, including the Galaxy Note8, plus all Galaxy S8 and S7 models available on T-Mobile (or course, wealready knew that these would be updated to Oreo).


At the moment, T-Mobile doesn't have a release date for itsupcoming Oreo updates, but some devices will likely start getting the newversion of Android in the coming months.   


In case you're wondering, T-Mobile's Galaxy J7 Prime (pictured above) and Galaxy Tab E areslightly different from their international versions, so it's not clear ifthese are also getting Android 8 Oreo updates.

Thanks Samsung for making us proud. Hope to see the Galaxy S9 to be a God's phone of 2018.

Surprised that the low end Tab E is more up to date than the Tab S2.
