Android Nougat update for Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Tab S2 is coming

Samsung has reportedly already started working on the Android Nougat update for its Galaxy Note 5 phablet and the Galaxy Tab S2 tablet.

Published onNovember 18, 2016


The Pixel and Pixel XL were the first smartphones on the market with the latest and greatest Android 7.0 Nougat. Meanwhile, other manufacturers are hard at work trying to update their devices to the latest version of Google’s OS as fast as possible.

According to a Sam Mobile, Samsung has already started developing the Android Nougat update for the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy Tab S2 tablet. As always, the company hasn’t revealed a specific date as to when it will be rolling it out to users across the world. Our best guess is that Samsung will need a few months to prepare a stable version of the update, which means that it probably won’t be available this year.
