T-Mobile releases Nougat update for Galaxy Tab S2 9.7, build T817TUVU2BQE2

The Galaxy Tab S2 just received the April security patch yesterday, and, while security patches are appreciated for the protection they provide, users really long for the latest Android system updates. This is no different for the nearly two-year-old tablet the Tab S2 is.

Well, T-Mobile has released the Nougat update for the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 bringing the build number to T817TUVU2BQE2. The Nougat update comes in at a hefty size of 1006.80MB, or a little over 1GB, which is the size you’d expect a major Android update to have. The T-Mobile Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 hasn’t had an update since the release of an Android security patch back at the end of February of this year.

The Android Nougat update for the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 brings the features we’ve seen in the Nougat update for all mobile devices: features such as Google’s own split-screen mode (similar to Samsung’s MultiWindow Mode), Doze on the Go for improved battery life, Notification Direct Reply to respond to messages within the Notification Shade, and Bundled Notifications that place same app notifications together. There are other goodies as well, though we can’t detail them all here.
