Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Started Receiving Android 7.0 Nougat
Samsung has been quite active as of late. The South Korean tech giant recently launched its Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone and updated Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to Android Nougat at the same time. Well, now it looks like both Galaxy Tab S2 size models are next in line. We should also mention that Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge + owners who are residents of North America have received Android Nougat a few weeks ago.
Android 7.0 Nougat
Galaxy Tab S2 owners started reporting that Android 7.0 Nougat has arrived to their tablets. Worth noting is that both size models of the tablets are being updated at the same time. However, the update is only available in Italy and Germany right now. However, we can be sure that different regions of the world will receive it during the upcoming days.
The update is being rolled out OTA (over the air) and it should appear in Galaxy Tab S2’s notifications panel any time now. Android 7.0 Nougat is fairly large in size, weighing in at 954.93MB and this is why we advise Galaxy Tab S2 owners to download it through a stable Wi-Fi connection and to keep their battery charged before starting to install it.
Features and Tweaks
Android 7.0 Nougat is going to completely change the way that Galaxy Tab S2 works. The tablet will feature a cleaner user interface and a bunch of cool features such as the multi-window mode. The notifications panel is going to see the biggest amount of changes. Additionally, Galaxy Tab S2 owners are going to be able to directly answer to pop-ups from the notification panel by long pressing on them.
