Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 (2016) Android 7.0 Nougat Update Clears Wi-Fi Alliance, Release May Happen Soon

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

It’s almost a month since the first Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 units started receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat over the air.

In early April, those using the Galaxy Tab S2 with model number SM-T715 (2015 variant of the 8.0 version) started receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat over the air. This was a little strange as many expected the 2016 variants to be ahead in the software update game, but this development also meant that it won’t be long before the same treat came the 2016 models’ way.

Now, in fresh developments, it appears that the 2016 variant of the Galaxy Tab S2 will soon be updated to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat. This comes after the tablet received clearance from the Wi-Fi Alliance with Nougat running the show, an indicator that the official release is not so far away.

The variants that have been certified are based on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon networks, carrying model numbers SM-T818A, SM-T818T and SM-T818V, respectively. The WFA has also cleared a variant with model number SM-T818W, which should be for the Canadian market.


At the moment, we can’t really tell when exactly this Nougat treat will be coming to the Galaxy Tab S2, but all we can promise is that it won’t be long before you see an OTA notification on your tablet.

Of course, we’ll be here to let you know when this update starts rolling out. Keep following us!
