Not long after grabbing its WiFi certification, the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 with Android 7.0 Nougat on board hits Geekbench. However, Samsung still has to launch the official Nougat firmware for this tablet and its siblings.

Samsung has been testing the first Nougat firmware update for the Galaxy Tab S2 lineup for a while now, and it looks like the release date is drawing closer. This week, the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0, model number SM-T719, surfaced on Geekbench running Android 7.0 Nougat.

The SM-T719 slate is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652-powered Galaxy Tab S2 8.0, the updated version that Samsung launched back in April 2016. This tablet made its debut loaded with Android Marshmallow and it would be the right time for it to finally receive the Nougat goodies, including the long-awaited split-screen mode, customizable quick settings, improved Doze mode, as well as multiple tweaks and fixes.

Since modifying a model number is relatively easy, everything needs to be taken with a grain of salt for the time being. We will get back to the Galaxy Tab S2 as soon as Samsung unveils the launch date of the Android Nougat update, so stay tuned.

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.
