More than two months after the Galaxy Tab S2 slates received Android Nougat in Europe, US owners of these tablets finally receive the new firmware. However, there is no confirmation for the arrival date of the update targeting the 9.7-inch model yet.

Back in the first half of April, Galaxy Tab S2 owners in Europe began to receive Android Nougat. Both sizes were included, but now just the WiFi-only Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 seems to get the new firmware in the US.

According to Ubergizmo, Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile have just released the Nougat update for the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 on their networks. Now, Samsung rolls out the same update for the SM-T713 model - the only Galaxy Tab S2 model available in the US that only provides WiFi connectivity. While the 9.7-inch model should get updated as well, Samsung still has to confirm that.

The new firmware brings all the standard Nougat features, having about 1.2 GB in size. The list of changes includes multi-window mode, bundled notifications, improved settings, better power management, new emojis, multiple tweaks and bug fixes, the latest security updates, and more.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
