Smartphones tend to make an impression on an individual and you might come across people that prefer a certain model over its newer, more up to date successor. However, when it comes to software everyone can agree that having the latest and greatest Android version is a unified goal in the Android community.
Some are fortunate enough to receive a new update immediately while others have to wait until they are granted access to the new firmware.
Thus comes the Galaxy Tab S2 tablet from Samsung, specifically the 9.7 inch model. The device has been spotted on a benchmarking tool result list called GFX Bench. Nothing out of the ordinary so far, right? Well, the device spotted on GFXBench was running none other than Android 7.0 Nougat. This is the kicker, as Samsung made no announcement about preparing Android Nougat for this specific tablet. This wouldn’t be the first time the Korean tech giant’s update plans have been revealed to the public through benchmark list sightings either, getting users even more hyped.
Another factor that ties into this story is the fact that Samsung has begun deploying the much desired Android Nougat firmware to its Galaxy S7 units. That means that the company has officially entered the Nougat distribution game, where a handful of devices rejoice while the others crumble in a fit of disappointment.
It is also worth noting that the tablet also comes in a smaller, 8 inch size. While the bigger 9.7 inch model was spotted on GFXBench, there are no news about the 8 inch one. Surely enough the update, if it arrives as per speculations, will include the 8 inch Galaxy Tab S2 as well since it wouldn’t be a great market strategy to leave one out.
Until we find out more, we can only hope that the rumors are more than what they seem, so that another Samsung device may benefit from Android 7.0 Nougat.
