Samsung is still in the process of rolling out OS updates to its older flagship devices. We highlighted the same last month when it started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to some of its older devices which have crossed the 2-year timeline for receiving further updates. In that series, Samsung has rolled out the Android Nougat 7.0 update for Galaxy Note 5 device. This update is for the T-mobile carrier variants. It’s probably upgrading its older device to Nougat 7.0 as Android 8.0 Oreo is already here. So, while latest devices gradually get upgraded to 8.0 Oreo, the somewhat older devices also get powered with the second best Android OS preceding Android 8.0. This is what we think. Well, anyway it’s a win-win for everyone.
The update will take the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 5 SM-N920T to the firmware build number N920TUVU4EQG3. Although it is an August based update the Nougat 7.0 update for Galaxy Note 5 is based on the July 2017 security patch update. Also, the Nougat 7.0 bundles together various cool features such as Merged notifications, Google Doze, DND etc. The OTA is rolling out gradually for every device. But if You are not into waiting, You can manually download and install the Nougat 7.0 firmware directly from Samsung servers.
