The new firmware brings Android 6.0.1 to this 8-inch slate, as well as the security patch for June by Google.

Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 is an affordable 8-inch tablet that Verizon Wireless added to its portfolio about four months ago. Launched in early 2016 with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on board, this Qualcomm Snapdragon 410-powered slate is now finally ready to receive Android Marshmallow and the latest security patches for it.

According to SamMobile, the update has the software version T377VVRU1BPD6 and is based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. All the expected new features are present - Google Now on Tap, new emojis, Doze mode, granular app permissions, an updated TouchWiz interface, multiple minor fixes and optimizations. On top of all these, the June security patch is also present.

Verizon Wireless rolls out the update via OTA as usual, but those who did not get the notification yet and are in a hurry can simply perform a manual check or just download it and flash it manually.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
