T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5 owners updating to Android 7.0 using Samsung Smart Switch software


T-Mobile plans to release Android 7.0 for the Galaxy Note 5 early this week, but if you absolutely can’t wait any longer for the update, you might be able to grab it right now.

The Android 7.0 update for T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 5 appears to be available through Smart Switch, Samsung’s software for Windows and Mac computers. TmoNews readers Jean Carlos and EffortLess installed the update this weekend.


As for what’s included in the update, you’re getting a bump to Android 7.0 and the goodies that come with that, like quick replies from your notifications. It also looks like the Note 5 is being updated to the March 1, 2017 security patch level, as the last update left it on the January 1, 2017 security patch level.

If you want to install this update right now, you can head to Samsung’s site to install Smart Switch and update that way. Alternatively, you can wait for T-Mobile to begin its over the air push, which should begin in the next day or two.

If you’ve already updated your Note 5 to Android 7.0, how is the update treating you so far?

Thanks, Jean Carlos and EffortLess!
