T-Mobile recently revealed that it’s going to update two of its affordable Samsung devices to Android 8 Oreo: Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime
, and Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 (both launched last year with Android 7 Nougat on board). This is newsworthy because cheap phones and tablets are often neglected when it comes to new software updates.
The Galaxy J7 Prime and Tab E are joining a bunch of high-end Samsung phones in the waiting line for Oreo, including the Galaxy Note 8, plus all Galaxy S8 and S7 models available on T-Mobile (or course, we already knew that these would be updated to Oreo).
At the moment, T-Mobile doesn’t have a release date for its upcoming Oreo updates, but some devices will likely start getting the new version of Android in the coming months.
In case you’re wondering, T-Mobile’s Galaxy J7 Prime (pictured above) and Galaxy Tab E are slightly different from their international versions, so it’s not clear if these are also getting Android 8 Oreo updates.
