Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android phablet to get Nougat soon

In addition to the Galaxy S7 lineup that has just received Android 7.0, Samsung plans to deliver this update to a pretty long list of devices, including the Galaxy Tab S2, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 5, and a few others. The list is not final, so more Samsung products could get the update in the second half of 2017.

Samsung is finally moving on with the Android Nougat update as the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge have just received it. However, there are a lot of Samsung devices, including tablets, that have hardware fully capable of running Android 7.0 but did not get the update yet and their owners still have to wait at least a few more weeks to finally have the new firmware ready for them.

According to an official Samsung web page, "Android 7.0 Nougat will be expanded to additional countries on the following devices within the first half of this year: Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and S6 edge Plus, Galaxy Note5, Galaxy Tab A with S Pen, Galaxy Tab S2 (LTE unlock), Galaxy A3, and Galaxy A8." Unfortunately, the capabilities of the Samsung Pass feature that comes with Nougat and the list of compatible apps depend on the market due to various regulatory and legal environments.

In addition to the above, more Samsung devices will get the Nougat goodies in the second half of the year. Android Nougat delivers multi-window mode, quick panel and improved notifications, enhanced Doze mode, and much 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.
