Two months after Samsung begun the work on the Nougat firmware for this slate, the Galaxy Tab S2 with Android 7.0 on board finally receives its WiFi certification, so the update should arrive soon.

SamMobile confirmed two months ago that Samsung had begun work on the Android 7.0 Nougat-based firmware for the Galaxy Tab S2. Now, it looks like the update is very close since the Galaxy Tab S2 with Nougat on board has just been spotted on the website of the WiFi Alliance.

According to the source mentioned above, "All 2015 models of the Galaxy Tab S2 – SM-T810, SM-T815 and SM-T817 – have paid a visit to the Wi-Fi Alliance for certification purposes." The successor of the Galaxy Tab S2 is expected to surface next month, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. However, we hope to see the update for the models mentioned above becoming available before MWC 2017.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 arrived on the market loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop. Available in 8-inch and 9.7-inch variants, it has 3 GB RAM, 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage, and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor or the Samsung-built Exynos 5433 Octa

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.
