Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 could soon receive Android 7.0 Nougat update at AT&T

Samsung has already kicked off the rollout of Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy Tab S2, but the unlocked units are the first to get it. However, carrier-branded units are expected to receive the update as well, just not in the first wave.

At least one major carrier in the United States may soon release the highly-anticipated Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy Tab S2. The AT&T version of the tablet has been recently spotted at Wi-Fi Alliance, which wouldn't have been something unusual if not for the mention of Android 7.0 Nougat.

Wi-Fi Alliance granted approval to a Samsung tablet with model number SM-T8181A, which we know is the AT&T Galaxy Tab S2. This might be clear evidence that the US carrier plans to release the update in the near future.

Although some carriers managed to launch major OS updates for their branded devices before they could hit their unlocked counterparts, sadly, the situation doesn't apply to the Galaxy Tab S2.

Still, it's not too late for those who own the tablet to get the update, even though other Samsung phones have already been upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat for a few months now.

I got mine, an US wifi model updated few days back. It shows little better battery efficiency and the device feels snappier.
