It’s not very often that you get to hear about an old Samsung device getting a the latest Android update. But guess what, an old Samsung tablet tastes last year’s Android Nougat while the world of Android is expecting to taste Android Oreo. It is unbelievable but true.

The Galaxy Tab A 9.7-inch is a mid-range tablet launched in 2015 with Android Lollipop. The tablet got the Marshmallow update last year, which was expected to be the last major software upgrade for the tablet. However, Geekbench spotted the tablet running Android 7.1.1 Nougat and some users have already started receiving the update in Germany, Hungary, Italy, Ireland and Spain.

 

Android Nougat brings the multi-window functionality to the Tab A, which will surely enable an enhanced tablet experience. Other noticeable features include background update (only if it gets anymore) and a power-saving Doze mode.
