Samsung News And Rumors: Galaxy Tab S2 With Android 7.0 Nougat In The Offing After Benchmark Test Spotted
A benchmark test was discovered fairly recently indicating that Samsung is indeed in the process of updating its Galaxy Tab S2.
Samsung has rolled out beta builds of Android 7.0 Nougat to some of its flagship devices and it seems like the Galaxy Tab S2 is next in line. A year after its launch, the company's flagship tablet is ripe for an update.
Rumors that a couple of devices from the Korean tech company would receive the Android Nougat update surfaced around a month ago.
Aside from the tablet, the Galaxy Note 5 was also rumored to receive a Nougat update. A benchmark test was later sighted early this month providing fuel to the fire. With the Galaxy Tab S2 also seen undergoing the GFXBench performance test, chances are high that both rumors will soon become reality.
The 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S2 was the one that underwent the GBXBench test. There's still no word, official or rumored, that the 8-inch version will also undergo a Nougat update but Phone Arena believes it will follow suit.
The release of the Android Nougat update for the Galaxy Tab S is still unknown and may take some time to be officially unveiled. In fact, many see a 2016 update as nearly impossible considering that preparations for an update such as this needs at least one to two months after the benchmark test to become available to the market. That said, the Android Nougat update for the galaxy Tab S2 may come sometime between January and February next year if everything falls into place.
The embattled company's current flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, have yet to be updated though it was already announced that it will push through next year. Samsung also revealed last month that its Galaxy A line will receive the Nougat update.
