Samsung updates the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) to Android 11 sooner than expected
Released back in early 2019 with Android 9 Pie-based software onboard, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 received Android 10 roughly a year ago. Now, the time has come for this affordable Exynos 7904-powered tablet to get what is probably its final major software update, namely the first Android 11-based One UI 3.0 package.
The model numbers targeted by the update are SM-T515 and SM-T515N. The update includes the June Android security patch and carries the following version numbers: T515NKSU8CUF6 (South Korea), T515XXU8CUF2 (Asia), and T515XXU8CUF4 (Europe). In addition to the specific Android 11 changes (not too many and obvious, to be honest), this software update also includes some Samsung-exclusive features. The list of such changes includes improved Samsung Internet and Samsung Keyboard, more lock screen options, a dedicated media player widget below quick setting toggles, improved stock apps, and more.
The list of countries where the update is available contains no less than 29 entries so far, including France, Germany, India, Poland, Spain, Taiwan, Spain, The UK, and The Netherlands. As usual, those who did not receive the notification should go to Settings>Software update to check out the update's availability.
