The original Samsung Galaxy J7 could receive Android 7.0 Nougat update soon

The two-year-old Samsung Galaxy J7 was definitely not in the cards for an Android 7.0 Nougat update. However, it looks like for whatever reason Samsung has decided that the original Galaxy J7 is popular enough to be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat.

Otherwise, we can’t explain why the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2015) with Android 7.0 Nougat on board recently received its Wi-Fi certification. The device is listed with model number SM-J701M, one of the many model numbers that the original Galaxy J7 was tagged with since its release.

Although Verizon states the update contains “the latest security patches,” it’s unclear whether it comes with June update or an older …

As such, it looks like the update will first be pushed to the majority of users in Europe, but Galaxy A3 (2016) owners in other regions should expect it in the coming …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to be powered by the Snapdragon 836 chipset?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could be unveiled in August. The other day, one of the big questions surrounding the phablet might have been answered by an unnamed Samsung executive. The latter reportedly told a Korean publication that the fingerprint scanner for the device will not be embedded under the screen. This news has yet to show up on Note 8 renders, most of which fail to show a rear-facing fingerprint button similar to what is found on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+.

While the Galaxy Note 8 has long been rumored to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset, a new rumor suggests …

The Galaxy Note 8 won't have an in-screen fingerprint scanner, according to Samsung official

Almost everyone who’s used Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S8, will be quick to tell you just how bad the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor’s placement is. As previously reported, this seems to have been a last second decision, made necessary due to the company’s inability to produce a high-quality prototype for an in-screen scanner in time. And while we’ve hoped the technology would be ready by the time the Galaxy Note 8 enters production, a recent piece of news has just crushed those dreams into fine dust.

As reported by Korean-language publication …

T-Mobile starts rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

T-Mobile confirmed last week it would start rolling out a new major OS update to both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones. As promised, Android 7.0 Nougat is now pushed to these phones as we speak, but there’s one other product that is getting the update as well, the Galaxy Tab S2.
