If you own an older Microsoft smartphone that is still running on Windows 8.1, things are about to change as a Windows 10 update for your smartphone is probably on the way already. This is not beta, but a fully fledged final version of the upgrade that has been in the making for months. Although Microsoft has officially started rolling it out to its smartphones around the world, not all phones will be receiving the update at the same time. Also note that if your Windows phone was not manufactured by Microsoft (or Nokia) but some other company, there will be an additional delay.


Check if your phone is in the list mentioned below:

  • Lumia 435
  • Lumia 430
  • Lumia 638 1GB
  • Lumia 636 1GB
  • Lumia 635 1GB
  • Lumia 540
  • Lumia 535
  • Lumia 532
  • Lumia 830
  • Lumia 735
  • Lumia 730
  • Lumia 640XL
  • Lumia 640
  • Lumia 930
  • Lumia 1520
  • BLU Win HD w510u
  • BLU Win HD LTE x150q
  • MCJ Madosma Q501


If you found your model in the list above, then go to the Windows Store and download the application called Microsoft's Update Advisor. Use it to find out if your update is on the way and turn on the option Enable Windows 10 Upgrade. Select Next and it will prompt something like ready to upgrade. Once you see that prompt, tap on Done to finish the setup. You can now go to Settings>Phone Update>Check for Updates to see if the upgrade has arrived yet. When it does actually arrive, you will see the notification automatically now.

Up until yesterday, Google's new voice assistant was exclusively available to the Pixel and the Pixel XL. However, Google has now made it official that the company is currently rolling out Google Assistant to multiple devices that are running on Android Marshmallow 6.0 or higher and Android Nougat 7.0 or higher. We knew that some of the upcoming devices like the LG G6 and the Moto G5/G5 Plus were going to come with the AI powered voice assistant right out of the box, but this is a pleasantly surprising and new development. The original announcement was made at the MWC earlier and now it's happening as you read this.

The United States is of course the first to get the personal assistant, but Australia, Canada and the UK should also start to receive the same soon enough. By the way, in case you are wondering if a package will need to be downloaded via OTA, let us assure you that it won't be necessary. The eligible devices will simply see Google Assistant show up on their phones. Long pressing the Home button on an updated device will bring up the AI assistant, actively replacing Google Search. Is this good news to you or do you simply not care about it? Let us know in the comments.

The update to Android Nougat 7.0 for the LG G5 is now being rolled out as you read this. It was expected as an Australian carrier named Optus had revealed earlier that the OS was being tested on the G5 and is almost at the verge of being ready for a final release. However, as of now, we have reports which state that the update is only available in South Korea. As confirmed by LG, it will also be hitting models all around the world in the next few weeks and more information will become available on the package locally, in respect to the geographical region concerned.
In the official statement at a press conference, this is what LG pointed out;


"At LG, we know our customers want the best, most up-to-date mobile experience,"


"Getting software updates to our users faster than the competition is our way of demonstrating that LG is committed to supporting our products and customers to ensure they have a positive ownership experience."


We must admit that we are seeing a much faster approach to providing updates to their flagship smartphones from the big boys such as Samsung and LG this time around. Don't forget that beta-testing of Android 7.0 will begin for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge from November 9 as well, and the final build could be hitting the two devices all over the world by the end of 2016 or early 2017.

According to a report by GSMArena, the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid have started to receive the latest Android 7.0 Nougat update on Verizon. It has not yet been officially declared by the carrier, but reports are being received from reliable sources which confirm the authenticity of this news.


If your Moto Z Droid or Moto Z Force Droid is being prompted for the update, connect to your Wi-Fi and prepare for the download as it's a huge one at around 1.5GB. Once you have downloaded and upgraded the package successfully, the firmware version on the Moto Z Droid should change to NCL25.86-11, while on the Moto Z Force Droid, it should show NCL26.86-11.



Although the installation should only take about twenty minutes on its own, the downloading time will of course vary, depending on the speed of the connection. The upgrade will bring multiple improvements, as well as new features to the two Moto devices, namely the App Quick-Switch and the Split-Screen mode. As always, Lenovo Moto becomes one of the first manufacturers to provide the latest version of the Android OS officially.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have finally started to receive the monthly security updates from Samsung for September. The update had hit this year's flagships, the S7 and S7 Edge earlier in the month. As far as we know, the security patch is currently only available for the unlocked versions in Europe and comes in at a size of 141MB. As expected, it will bring in both the Android and Samsung security patches for the month, but its availability will depend on where you are located and you carrier.


Samsung themselves have included fixes for nine issues into the patch, in addition to the 66 fixes that Google has incorporated into the update for the base Android 6.0.1 OS running on the two smartphones. If you have not seen the notification prompting you to update your device yet, you should see it soon. Post the upgrade, your smartphone's Base Band version should change to XXU4DPIL (unlocked European versions). If you are using a carrier-locked device though, it will take a bit longer as it usually does.

If you already have Android 6 running on your Galaxy S5 in India, then your device is probably powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801. The Snapdragon variant was released in India following a few months post the original release of the Galaxy S5, which was powered by the Exynos 5422. After rolling out the Marshmallow update to the Snapdragon version, Samsung has now started to update its Exynos variant of the S5 with the same.



There are two ways that users in India can download and install the update; the first one is of course, Over The Air or OTA. You should soon see a notification, prompting you to download the package, as soon as it arrives on your smartphone. Although every smartphone will not receive the update at the same time, you can always check from Settings > About device > Check for updates to be sure. The second method of updating involves connecting your phone to your PC via Samsung Smart Switch. Your PC must have an active internet connection to complete the entire process. Did you install it yet?

If you own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 from T-Mobile, your device's update to Android Marshmallow in on its way. T-Mobile is the last major carrier in the US to update the Galaxy Note 4 as all others (including Verizon) had already released the same a while ago.
The update comes in at a hefty package of 1.5GB and therefore, we recommend the use of Wi-Fi for downloading it. After you download and install it on your SM-N910T, the build number should change to N910TUVU2EPE3 and the base Android version should upgrade to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.



Even though T-Mobile took its sweet time in updating the Note 4, we were disappointed to see that the latest Android security patches were not included (or so it appears). Nevertheless, it is definitely an improvement over the Note 4's now dated Android version and User Interface. Although you should automatically be notified about the update as soon as it arrives on your smartphone via OTA, feel free to check it out manually from Settings > About device > Software update. Even if you don't see it now, you should see it within the next few days.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are now receiving the November patch from T-Mobile. To be honest, we were a little surprised as it's not often that a Samsung phone receives the monthly security patch this early. In fact, T-Mobile has not even listed the OTA update on its website yet. Therefore, feel free to check manually from Settings > About device > Software update, but do not be disappointed if you cannot see it being available for you phone right now.


The update comes in an OTA package of about 82MB for both the S7 and the S7 Edge. Post the download and installation, the S7's firmware version will change to G930TUVU4PK1 and that of the S7 Edge to G935TUVU4APK1. Even though there isn't any concrete document to confirm it, this update could also make the S7 and S7 Edge compatible with 256 QAM and 64 QAM for improved download speeds. We will surely get to know more in the next few days, in the meanwhile, we just hope that the manufacturers and the carriers continue to work together and provide their customers with such timely updates!

We have good news for our readers in India because Samsung has decided to bring Android Marshmallow to even the entry level Galaxy J5 Original this year. In fact, the 874.17MB update has been rolled out to the J5 even before the J7 Original, which will receive the update soon as well.



Once you download and install the update (preferably via Wi-Fi), the build number on your phone should change to J500FXXU1BPF and the base Android version should now show 6.0.1 Marshmallow. You will need to take a good look at the change log to see all the changes that you will see on your J5, post the upgrade. We think that the "New TouchWiz" should be particularly interesting to experience for the first time. You can also expect features common to the Android M OS to now become a part of your smartphone, like customizable app permissions, better battery life with Doze, Google Now on Tap, etc.


The update will take time to reach every smartphone in the country via OTA, but you can always check for it from Settings > About Device > Software update on your device. Did you expect your J5 to receive the Marshmallow treatment? They did take their sweet time with it, but considering the fact that Samsung isn't really known for providing major updates to its older entry level phones, this is good news indeed.

It has been just a week or so since the first build of the beta went live for the S7 and S7 Edge in Europe and they have already released the second build in Europe! This package will come to the eligible smartphones as an OTA update, just like the first build. The changes that the 92MB file brings to the basic build are mainly improvements in stability, performance and minor bug fixes, rather than any significant new features that are worth mentioning.



Incidentally, today also marks the date when the first version of the Nougat beta build went live in China for eligible users of the Galaxy Beta Program. South Korea is yet to receive the second build from Samsung, even though it was the first country to receive the initial beta build. Nevertheless, irrespective of your device's location, if it has been selected for the Galaxy Beta Program, all builds of the beta Nougat program will come to your S7 or S7 Edge eventually.

Just like plenty of other regions around the world, the Galaxy S7s in India have also started to receive their November security update since yesterday. If you own an S7 Edge however, you will have to wait a while longer. Like always, the security update includes Google’s monthly security patches for the Android OS in general (6.0.1 Marshmallow), as well as fixes for 14 vulnerabilities unique to the Samsung smartphones. Overall improvements in terms of stability and performance were also mentioned in the changelog, but nothing else was pointed out specifically.


Head over to Settings > About device > Software update on your S7 and search for the November patch manually. If it hasn’t arrived on your phone yet, just wait a while longer as OTA updates never reach all phones in an area at the same time. If it’s already there however, connect to your Wi-Fi, download the 64.42MB file and install it. The Build Number of your S7 should show G930FXXU1BPJJ after the update is complete.

Even though it is already December, the two Samsung flagship smartphones from 2015 have just started to receive the November Security patch on T-Mobile. As expected, the OTA update brings all the security patches from Google and Samsung's own 14 fixes for the month. The phones should also become more stable and improve in performance as per the changelog.


Post the download and installation, the firmware version should change to G920TUVU5EPK5 on the Galaxy S6 and G925TUVU5EPK5 on the Galaxy S6 Edge. Of course, if you are not on contract with any carrier, you have probably already received you November security update from Samsung weeks ago. In fact, the December security update from Google is about to be released any time now. It usually takes a few days for the OEM to prepare the update for its specific models and incorporate them with some of their own custom fixes, before the carriers can have access to the ROM and further add their own customizations to it. This is basically the reason why there is usually a delay in-between.

The December security update for the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) is now rolling out to handsets all around Europe. Hopefully other regions should start getting them very soon as well. The OTA file comes in at a surprisingly slim package of only 10.63MB with firmware version XXS3BPLA. The small package makes us curious as to if there are any changes or fixes from Samsung at all in this one. We know that the file contains the SMR from Google for the month of December, but not too many of Samsung's own customized improvements apparently.



However, strangely enough, some users are reporting that their units have been prompted for a 169MB update in the same region. It is unclear at the moment as to what's going on here. What do you see? You can check right now by going to Settings > About phone > Software update. Let us know the size of the file that you are prompted to download in the comments. Just in case you don't see any updates for your phone yet, don't worry, as the batches tend to take a while before reaching all the smartphones in an area.

We have good news for our readers in the US as the Samsung Galaxy S Active has finally started to receive the December security update. One can argue that we are already nearing the end of the first week of January, but then again, these updates seldom reach the intended handsets in time. Also, carrier versions of a smartphone usually receive their updates a bit later than unlocked variants, as the file has to go through an additional layer of customization from the carrier.


The OTA file is landing on handsets with an AT&T connection only, which isn't surprising of course, given that the Galaxy S7 Active is exclusively available on AT&T. The 45MB firmware package has the build number MMB29M.G891AUCS2APL1 and brings with it everything that Android has fixed and patched in the month of December. That is it though; it isn't the Android Nougat update some of you might be waiting for. Then again, you cannot really expect the S7 Active to receive the latest from Android even when the regular S7 and S7 Edge haven't! Nevertheless, we did here about a Nougat based firmware update being released for a very few select S7 series of handsets yesterday.


Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)



It is now official; no more beta updates or soak tests. The much awaited update to Nougat is now en route to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The final release will hit your device anytime in between now and the next few weeks, depending on your location. Also, if your S7/S7 Edge is running on a beta build of Nougat already, you will be upgraded with a much smaller 215MB file before the regular users who are still on the stable Marshmallow build.



Surprisingly, the final version of the update is built on Nougat v7.0 and not v7.1.1 like the previous report from a reliable source had suggested. It's also unexpected to see the OTA rollout begin an entire week before the scheduled date (January 17). We are guessing that January 17 is the date on which the Nougat rollout will begin for those that were not a part of the Beta Program. As you can probably guess, that would be a much bigger file. However, that is only speculation and verified information at this point.

If you own a Galaxy Note 4, we have good news for you. Samsung has now officially started to roll out the January security update for the older Note. Keep in mind that this update is only out for the unlocked variants and as of now, Germany is the first country to receive it. If Samsung follows its usual routes, then Netherlands will receive the security patch next. From there on, Poland and UK could be next in line.



The update will come in with the same 67 patches and fixes which are part of all Android January SMR updates. Additionally, 28 of Samsung's own custom fixes should also make their way onto your Galaxy Note 4, post the updating process. Check the details here on the official changelog. You should automatically be prompted to download and install it once it arrives on your phone, but feel free to check for the update manually from Settings > About device > Software updates, if you wish.

It was just yesterday that we reported about the Galaxy J2 Prime being updated by Samsung with the latest security patch for 2017 and now we already have news about the Galaxy J5 Prime receiving the same update. The J5 Prime was released near the end of the third quarter of 2016 and even though it is fairly new, chances of the mid-range handset being updated to Nougat isn't that great. However, Samsung has changed its strategy when it comes to delivering updates to its budget smartphones, so let's just hope that we are wrong about this.


You can check manually for the update if you wish, but you should get the prompt automatically when the January security update reaches your smartphone. The firmware version coming with this patch is G570FXXU1AQA2.


If you can't wait for the latest updates which may or may not be officially rolled out by Samsung, or you would simply like to try something else on your device, head over to our firmware section and check out the hundreds of firmware packages we have for you. Just make sure to go through the tutorial first and download the package that matches with your device's name and model number.

The January security patch has now officially started to roll out to the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 on Verizon. One may argue that it's already February but it's better late than never. Surprisingly, it was the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge which had received the SMR update a few days earlier than their newer counter parts. The firmware versions have been listed below respectively.


Galaxy S6 - G920VVRS4CQA3
Galaxy S6 Edge - G928VVRS3BQA1
Galaxy Edge+ - G925VVRS4CQA3
Galaxy Note 5 - N920VVRS3BQA1


Wait till you get a notification or search manually for the update from your settings menu, but it may take a few days before it reaches every device in the US, that's being carried by Verizon. The ROM files are not yet available for download, but you can always check out our firmware section for the latest updates that are available anytime you want.

It has been a while now since Samsung released the Nougat 7.0 update for the S7 and S7 Edge. T-Mobile and AT&T had already started with rolling out the carrier versions and now Sprint just joined them. As of now, reports suggest that only the handsets which were enrolled into the Galaxy Beta Program are getting the update, but other users should be receiving the stable build very soon as well.


Although the actual size of the full Android Nougat v7.0 update is supposed to be more than 1.2GB, the one that's currently rolling out to the beta testers who already have Nougat installed, is just a 167MB file. To find the update manually, head over to Settings > About device > Software update. If it's not there yet, just wait a few days and you should be prompted to update your S7 or S7 Edge automatically.

Reports have been coming in to confirm that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in Germany, Belgium and Netherlands are now receiving the much awaited Nougat 7.0 update. The update is currently live for the unlocked variants of the two smartphones with the model numbers SM-G930F (S7) and SM-G935F (S7 Edge). The 1.3GB OTA upgrade package will arrive with all the usual bells and whistles that accompany Android v7.0 Nougat and a few patches.


The good news is that even if you own a carrier locked variant of the S7 or the S7 Edge, you will probably get a notification prompting you to download the update. The thing is that carriers in Europe have already started to roll out Nougat to the two Galaxy devices about two weeks ago. Those that didn't roll out the update previously, will start doing so from today. Let us know if any OTA update has hit your device yet in the comments. Also, head over to our firmware section to get access to all the latest ROM update files.

Although we are already into the second week of March, not all smartphones are fortunate enough to expect the March SMR package from OEMs and carriers yet. In fact, most older and budget devices have not even received the January security patch. If you own a Galaxy Note 4 or a Galaxy J5 Original though, you are in luck as T-mobile and Samsung respectively have released the January security patch for them.



The unlocked versions and even certain carrier variants of the Note 4 had started to receive the February patch a few days ago in Europe, so it is a bit disappointing to see T-Mobile taking so much time in rolling out even the dated updates in the US. Nevertheless, the 60.54MB package with build number MMB29M.N910TUVS2EQB1 should arrive via OTA on your Note 4 anytime now.



On the Galaxy J5 original, the January update arrives with the build number MMB29M.J500FNXXU1BQA3. This one comes straight from Samsung and not a carrier. Just as with all other January security updates from Samsung, this one will address 67 potential security issues common to all Android devices and 28 of Samsung's own custom fixes for vulnerabilities exclusive to Samsung smartphones.

It is now official; the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones are now receiving Android Nougat 7.0 in Europe. The news comes in roughly when it was expected to, so kudos to Samsung for maintaining the schedule (more or less!). Also, we must thank The Android Soul for bringing forth the news, along with screenshots.



The S6 is getting Nougat 7.0 with the firmware version G920FXXU5EQBG, in a 1.4GB OTA file. The S6 Edge is also receiving a 1.4GB file with the same OS upgrade, but with the firmware version G925FXXU5EQBG. Remember that depending on the country, the firmware version may differ slightly. Carrier versions in the region have not started receiving Nougat yet though.


According to reports, the updates include almost all the improvements we saw on the S7 and S7 Edge builds, with the exception of the Performance mode and the option to change display resolutions like a Windows device. Then again, we were not expecting those features to make it to the S6 and S6 Edge anyway.

Security patch for the month of February has now started to reach the Galaxy A7 original. You may argue that it's already the middle of March, but hey! Better late than never. Besides, the Galaxy A7 original was released back in 2015 and it's a good thing that Samsung is still updating the device with regular patches. Then again, it has been the trend with Samsung recently to support even some of its older phones; a trend which we like very much.


The update comes in with the firmware version A700FXXU2BQB1 and should reach your region soon. In case you are wondering where this report originated from, know that the OTA file is currently being rolled out to the A7 handsets in the Netherlands. The report came to our attention, thanks to SamMobile and their sources.

Yes it is true; Samsung's most neglected flagship has started to receive the Nougat update. However, just like it was with the Galaxy Note 5, the update is only live in Turkey as of now. According to the source, firmware version XXU3CQC7 is now live via OTA in the region. More European nations should be getting the update in the coming days. If you are in Europe, be on the lookout.


Just as with the Galaxy Note 5 package, the update will probably weigh in at roughly 1.3GB. Samsung may be a bit late on releasing the update though, because according to previously released information, the S6 Edge+ should have started to receive Nougat by March 14. Nevertheless, like I always say in case of firmware updates, better late than never!


According to the same roadmap, the Galaxy A3 (2016) and the Galaxy A8 should get Nougat next. Although we are pretty sure that it won't arrive on the exact date, it seems like you can expect the OTA rollout to begin by the end of April.

As expected, the Galaxy Tab S2 is now receiving the Nougat update form Samsung in certain regions. The OTA update is hitting both the 9.7-inch version and the 8-inch version, but not in the same areas. According to reports, the 8-nch Galaxy Tab S2 with the model number SM-T715 is receiving Nougat in Italy, while in Germany, the 9.7 inch variant with model number SM-T810 is getting the same upgrade. However, it's only a matter of days before all devuces in the regions start receiving the upgrade to the latest and greatest Android OS.


The good news is that the 954.93MB file also contains the latest April security patch, making this a truly useful and complete update for the two tablets. Apart from the usual bells and whistles that are associated with each and every Nougat update, the Tab S2 will not feature a completely new user interface, that is better, faster and more secure, thanks to the April SMR. You may have to wait a while if you are not in any of these two countries, but now that it has staretd to roll out, you can rest assure that wait won't be too long. In the meanwhile, if you want to try out the Nougat update for the Galaxy Tab S2 before its official release in your region, head over to our firmware section.

As you probably know already, Samsung have been facing quite a few issues since the Galaxy S8's launch and although none of them are as large as what happened with the Note 7 (fortunately!), they are there nonetheless. The red tint problem have been bugging a few early adopters of the S8 and S8+ in certain sections of the world and Samsung started to address the problem a few days back when they released a fix for it in South Korea. They have now started to release the same update to its European customers.


The so called fix is however more of a "do-it-yourself" update than a patch really. After installing the update, users will now be able to control the RGB balance of the main panel, in addition to the edges (screen edge colour balance) where it reportedly looked more reddish than anywhere else on the display. There will also be a new option to make your phone look warmer or cooler, depending on your preference. Now we are just waiting for Samsung to address the more serious Galaxy S8 restart problem that some customers are complaining about. Have you faced any of these issues on your Galaxy S8 or S8+ yet?

According to a report by SamMobile, Samsung has just started to release the much awaited Nougat update for the Galaxy A5 (2016) in Europe. To be more precise, it's only available in Russia as of now, but more European nations should be seeing the update soon enough. This marks the beginning of Samsung releasing Nougat for its older mid-range handsets from last year.


The update contains firmware version A510FXXU4CQDK and is available via OTA in the country right now. If you want to check out the firmware yourself from some other nation, you will have to wait for a while because it's still not available at our firmware section yet. Nevertheless, there's a lot of other firmware and updates available for Samsung smartphones and tablets there, so be sure to check them out.

AT&T recently completed releasing Android Nougat for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 to all its users in the US. Now the company has just started to release the same OS upgrade for all the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Active users on their network as well.



The OTA file comes in at a size of roughly 1.22GB - 1.36GB and that's true for all the three devices. You will find that there's less bloatware on your device after the update as AT&T Address Book and MobiTV applications will be removed post update. The April SMR release for Android devices is included in the package, along with some of Samsung's own security patches and performance enhancements for the handsets. In addition to everything that comes with the Android Nougat OS, a refreshed UI, Samsung Pass and Samsung Cloud should also become accessible from the three smartphones now.

Although the Galaxy Tab S3 is Samsung's latest and greatest tablet right now, it looks like the older Tab A 10.1 from 2016 haven't been forgotten by the manufacturer yet. Although unexpected, it was a pleasure to see that the Korean giant has actually decided to roll out Nougat 7.0 to the Tab A. Keep in mind though, it is only fair for Samsung to roll out Nougat to the tablet, given that it was just released a year ago in May of 2016.


The update comes in at about 1.3GB with firmware version P580KXU1BQD9 for the Wi-Fi only version. In almost the same size, firmware version P585N0KOU1BQD9 will make its way onto the Wi-Fi + LTE variant as well. Even though it wasn't mentioned where the updates are being rolled out as of now, it should arrive on your tablet in roughly a week nevertheless. Keep checking manually if you are impatient, but rest assured that you will be prompted for downloading the file as soon as it gets to your smartphone anyway.

It took a while for Samsung to start sending Android 7.0 Nougat out to the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016), but now that it's finally rolling out to the tablet from last year, the OEM has decided to also bless it with the latest Android SMR update. Do you own the version with the S-Pen or the standard variant? It doesn't matter really because the same update is making its way towards both the devices simultaneously.


If you own the standard Galaxy Tab A without the S Pen, you should see firmware version T580XXU2BQE4 arrive on your tablet and provided you paid a bit extra to get the S Pen variant, you will be receiving your firmware in version P580KXU1BQE6. All the essential and latest bug fixes from Google will be included in the update, along with some of Samsung's own. We are not sure how much of a performance improvement this will actually bring to your device, given it's only a minor monthly update, but if you experience anything positive or negative, do let us know in the comments.

As had been predicted by a leaked piece of information known as the Samsung Nougat "roadmap" quite a while back, the Tab S2 has just started to receive Android Nougat 7.0 via OTA updates in the United States. Model number SM-T713 was released back in the November of 2015, so it's good to see that Samsung is still supporting the tablet with the latest Android OS update. It might not be the most timely update ever, but Samsung isn't known for that either!


Firmware version T713XXU2BQD3 will be making its way onto your Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 tablets in the US anytime now, if it hasn't already. Check from the Software Updates section, but it isn't really necessary though, given the fact that you will be prompted automatically to update your phone as soon as it arrives. The source of the news also reports that the update will not enable the Always On display functionality on the tablet, in spite of the device sporting a perfectly capable AMOLED panel. I guess they consider the feature to be a smartphone exclusive for now.
