T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 5 gets Android 7.0
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.
