Right after the S8’s unboxing, the Korean major Samsung is now rolling out the official Android 7.0 Nougat update to its S-line Tab- The Galaxy Tab S2. The Tab S2 is a premium tablet from Samsung that was released in Q3 of 2105 with two different variants, namely- 8.0 LTE and 9.7 WiFi. Meanwhile, the firmware update is being pushed only for the regions of Italy and Germany. So we predict a broader rollout soon for the other regions like Russia, Egypt, France, UK, Spain etc.
The update comes as an OTA(Over-The-Air) as well as a full Odin flashable stock firmware. Download the update package from below. Upgrading the firmware will take the SM-T715 variant to its PDA T715XXU2CQCL and CSC T715OXA2CQCL respectively. Similarly, the SM-T810 variant will be updated to the PDA T810XXU2DQCL and CSC T810DBT2DQCL in particular.
In a nutshell, the update not only brings Nougat but also brings the latest April 1, 2017, security patch level from the AOSP.
