Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android phablet gets Nougat update on T-Mobile late April 2017

Samsung's phablet has begun to receive Android Nougat a while ago, long enough for Sprint, Verizon Wireless, and AT&T to release the new firmware. Now, T-Mobile subscribers using the Note 5 finally get the same treatment.

Although its competitors were faster, T-Mobile also continues to provide support to the Galaxy Note 5 phablets on its network. This week, the Android Nougat update for Magenta's subscribers that use Samsung's phablet is finally going to roll out. The confirmation arrived just a few days ago, and the new firmware should reach the Note 5 units on T-Mobile this week.

Last Friday, T-Mobile's "gadget guy" Des posted the following on Twitter: "FRIDAY SOFTWARE UPDATE: Approval of Android 7.0 Nougat for #GalaxyNote5 today! @TMobile customers should start to see it early next week!" 

While he did not mention any details, the changes should be obvious. Since the Note 5 users on T-Mobile would move from Marshmallow to Nougat, the software update should bring them the usual goodies - split-screen mode, improved notifications, enhanced Doze mode, quick app switching, customizable Quick Settings, improved multi-language support, new emojis, the usual tweaks and fixes, and more.

We will probably get back to the update later this week, as soon as T-Mobile reveals the official change log, 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.
