Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 to receive Android Oreo soon
Samsung's rugged tablet, the Galaxy Tab Active 2 landed in the United States about a year ago with Android Nougat and security feature Knox out of the box. After one year, the slate is expected to receive a major Android OS update, and probably some security patches as well.

Several Galaxy Tab Active 2 models running Android Oreo have been recently spotted at Wi-Fi Alliance, which suggests the update can't be far now. The following variants are expected to receive the update: SM-T390, SM-T395, SM-T395N, and SM-T395C.

It's unclear if Samsung will further provide major OS updates to the Galaxy Tab Active 2, but it should since the tablet hasn't been on the market for a long time. The South Korean company hasn't even offered Android Pie updates for many of its flagships, so it's too early to assume anything at the moment.
