Although Android Nougat for the Galaxy Tab A was released just a few days ago, unfortunately, it was meant only for the Tab A 10.1 (2016) and not its smaller, older sibling. When reports about an update being rolling out for the older tablet began to circulate, many of us hoped against our better judgement that maybe Samsung is feeling particularly generous this year towards the Tab A line-up! However, that was not meant to be, because firmware version P350ZSU1BQD5 only contains the April security update, a few minor improvements and some bug fixes introduced by Samsung. The Wi-Fi + LTE version should also get it soon, but at this moment, just the Galaxy Tab A Wi-Fi only variant is receiving the update via OTA.
In case you still own the aged Galaxy Core Prime released by Samsung back in 2014, you should be pleased to know that Samsung is currently rolling out the same April security update for both versions of the device as well. If you were hoping that Nougat is coming to the Core Prime, we suggest that you try a custom ROM!
