Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S6 as its flagship tablet of the year 2019. The product debuted with One UI 1.x based on Android 9.0 Pie. It was later updated up to Android 10-based One UI 2.5. Now, one and a half years later after its release, the premium tablet is receiving its second major update in the form of One UI 3.1 based on Android 11.
Samsung started rolling out the One UI 3.0 (Android 11) stable update for the eligible devices from December 2020. A little over a month later, the company began to seed the One UI 3.1 update to the devices that had received the previous update.
As for the Galaxy Tab S6, it has started getting a direct update to the latest One UI 3.1 from One UI 2.5, as per AllAboutSamsung. In fact, this tablet was supposed to receive the vanilla One UI 3.0 two months later. Anyway, we aren’t surprised since Samsung has been delivering Android 11 update to eligible smartphones and tablets ahead of schedule since the rollout began.
That said, the Galaxy Tab S6 One UI 3.1 update is currently only available for the LTE variant. The OTA update is being pushed for users in Germany with firmware version T865XXU4CUB7.
Apart from bringing Android 11 and new features, the latest system update for this 2019 Samsung flagship tablet bumps up the security patch level to March 2021. Last but not least, the update weighs 2267.69MB in size.
We expect the South Korean tech giant to soon extend the availability of this update to more regions as well as the WiFi-only variant of this tablet in the coming days.
