The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 which was launched in 2015 with Android Lollipop has now got WiFi certification from the WiFi Alliance (WFA) with Android 7.0 Nougat onboard. The listing simply implies that Samsung is perhaps testing the latest software and may release the same for the device soon.
As per the listing, Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 supports dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n (2.4GHz,5GHz) and Wi-Fi Direct connectivity features. Sadly, the listing does not show any specifications except that the device will be powered by Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. The listing also reveals the tablet boasts the model number as SM-T550 with the certification ID WFA59137 and the date of certification being 27th July 2017. Since the device has got the WiFi certification, we expect the device to get Nougat update soon.
