T-Mobile Lists Devices That Will Get Nougat

Give credit to T-Mobile.  Usually the question of if a device on a particular carrier will see a major Android update is a mystery at best and a frustration at worst.  T-Mobile is working to eliminate that for their customers.  The carrier has published a list of all the devices that are on their network that will see the Android Nougat update.  Now let’s be clear:  This isn’t going to happen overnight.  Customers are likely weeks or months away, depending on the device, from seeing the update.  Further, the carrier points out that the update has to come from the manufacture first, then they will release it.  If the manufacture doesn’t release it, then that device won’t get the update.

Here is the full list from T-Mobile of devices that will see Android Nougat on their network

Samsung Galaxy S6

As for when you can expect updates, that’s really out of T-Mobile’s control to a large extent.  They are waiting for manufactures to release the updates to these specific devices.  Once that happens, the carrier will do their internal testing and then release it.   Again, to their credit, T-Mobile is pretty fast about turning out these updates once they get them.
