Since Android 7.0 Nougat is released officially, the thing on most eager client’s minds is whether their handset will get this emphasis of Google’s versatile OS and provided that this is true, when. Tragically, there is never a straightforward response to this inquiry, particularly when you check all the local and carrier versions of a given smartphone and their respective life cycle.
Just today, T-Mobile distributed its very own rundown of its very own carriers Samsung will get the OTA sooner or later. It is preparatory and more entries could be included the future, however at present it includes the following smartphones:
- Samsung Galaxy S6
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus
- Samsung Galaxy S7
- Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
- Samsung Galaxy Note 5
- Samsung Galaxy Note 7
To be very frank, this fits perfectly with Samsung’s track record of typically supporting its flagship models through two major updates or roughly two years. Of course, there have been exceptions in the past and as we already mentioned, the list can be updated in the future. However, owners of said smartphones from T-Mobile can already rest assured that they will be enjoying Nougat in the future. As for timing, well, that is a whole different story.
Given that we have not heard anything about continuous testing or some other related breaks, it may be a few months still, before manufactures begin seeding. Tragically, that is just the way the smartphone chain as of now works, particularly for Samsung gadgets with their vigorously adjusted Android builds.
Lastly, it is likewise worth specifying that T-Mobile has the HTC One M9 and HTC 10 on its official sitting tight rundown for Nougat too. They are likely in a comparable situation time-wise as their Samsung kin.
