While the race to release their own version of Android Nougat has been on for a while, Samsung seems to be taking the lead. After releasing the Galaxy Beta Program for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, the South Korean tech giant is now reported to be working on Android Nougat for Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Tab S2.

Samsung is staying true to their standard policy of providing major software update support to devices for two years. We also recently reported that the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Nougat update is also in the works.

The release of the beta update, let alone the public release could be months away. Even with the Nougat beta update rolling out already for the selected users, the official release date is yet to be made public.

However, users can expect the update to be official before 2017, and Nougat for Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Tab S2 to come in early 2017. There is no news of a Galaxy Beta Program for users of the Samsung flagship devices from last year as of yet.

Are you among the privileged users of the latest Galaxy devices who will be the first to taste Android Nougat? Do share your thoughts on this latest news from Samsung in the comments section down below.
