Even though Android 8.0 is almost ready, OEMs and carriers are working hard to see to it that eligible devices are updated to Android 7.0 Nougat.
Samsung, the leading vendor when it comes to mobile devices, has done a great job lately by continuing to update its devices to the Nougat OS. At the moment, many of its devices, be it smartphones or tablets, have already received the latest dessert, among them the Galaxy Tab A and some variants of the Galaxy Tab S2.
Now, as at the time of this writing, American carrier AT&T has just joined the party as far as Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is concerned. The slate has started receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat over the air, following in the footsteps of T-Mobile and Verizon.
If you own an AT&T-based Galaxy Tab S2, you can expect a Nougat update that weighs about 1.1GB. Other than the Nougat treat, this update also ups the tablet’s Android security patch level to May 2017, which is not the latest, but much better.
In order to get the OTA update, your Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 must be running baseband version T817AUCU2BPI4 or T818AUCS1AQD1. In short, you must first get any of these two updates before thinking of moving to Nougat.
