Verizon rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

Shortly after T-Mobile announced it has kicked off the rollout of Android 7.0 Nougat update to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, another U.S. carrier made a similar move – Verizon.

Verizon is now pushing Android 7.0 Nougat for Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 to all customers, so you'll want to look for software version NRD90M.T818VVRU1BQE1. Also, make sure that you have enough free storage and that your slab's battery is at least 50% charged.

Although Verizon states the update contains “the latest security patches,” it's unclear whether it comes with June update or an older version.

What we do know is the update brings a new, simple user interface, as well as different ways to customize the Galaxy Tab S2. A new battery management feature is now available, which should help users maximize battery life.

Android 7.0 Nougat adds support for split screen, side by side viewing of any two apps. Also, the keyboard and improved language predictions have been updated with new engines.
