Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 (2015) is Getting Android 7.0 Nougat

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

Samsung has had issues with its devices’ naming style, something the company claimed it was looking to revise in order to restore some order in its house.

Whether this order has been achieved with the current naming style or not is still a debatable issue, but from the latest details, we know that one of its Galaxy Tab S2 tablets is receiving an update to Android 7.0 Nougat.

I say one of its Galaxy Tab S2 tablets because the tech giant has two variants of this tablet under the same name. One model was announced in 2015 and another came out in 2016. Where the former has an Exynos processor running the show, the latter comes with a Snapdragon SoC. So far, the Snapdragon variant, which was released in 2016, has already been updated to Android 7.0 Nougat on Verizon, but it’s now the time for the Exynos variant to join the party with a similar update of its own.

If you are using a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablet with model number SM-T817, well, you should have already received the update to Android 7.0 Nougat. As noted, this update is rolling out to the Verizon variant that carries software version NRD90M.T817VVRU2DQE1, bringing on board everything you’ve probably heard about the Grace UX and related features.

The update is rolling out over the air and as such, not all variants of the Galaxy Tab S2 will be updated to the Nougat OS at once. Still, you can check for the availability of the update manually by heading to Settings>About device>Software updates>Check for updates. Since this is a major update, it’s probably a good idea to get it over Wi-Fi, unless you are okay with using cellular data to do the same.
