Samsung promised an Android 7.0 Nougat update for the extremely popular tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen, and today the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen with Android 7.0 Nougat installed was officially approved by the Wi-Fi Alliance.
So not only does this mean that Samsung is finished with developing the Android 7.0 update for the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen, but also that Samsung may start to ship this tablet with Android 7.0 pre-installed in a few months too.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen Android 7.0 update was first officially announced by Samsung on January 19, so we knew that the update was coming, just not precisely when, other than within the first 1/2 of 2017.
The model number for the main Wi-Fi version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen is SM-P580, but all the other versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen, with and without optional 4G LTE, or for any worldwide market, was certified with the Android 7.0 update today as well.
So by model number, the models included in the Android update are the SM-P580, SM-P583, SM-P585, SM-P587, and SM-P588. The actual OTA update rollout should start soon, and as Samsung have promised, it will be on the tablet within Q2.
