US Cellular has started rolling out the Galaxy Tab E Nougat update. This tablet is second in Samsung’s lineup to be upgraded straight to Android version 7.1.1. Samsung released a similar update for the Galaxy Tab A 9.7 yesterday, it’s the first device that Samsung has bumped straight to version 7.1.1.
US Cellular is now rolling out this update for Galaxy Tab E (SM-T377R4) in the United States. The tablet was previously on Marshmallow and those who owned one certainly hoped that the company would eventually upgrade it to Nougat.
With the Galaxy Tab E Nougat update, Samsung has bumped the tablet up to Android 7.1.1. It hasn’t done this for any of its smartphones. All of Samsung’s other devices that are on Nougat now have been upgraded to version 7.0.
Users don’t need to be concerned, though. There aren’t a lot of differences between the two versions. Most of the changes in version 7.1.1 have already been incorporated by Samsung in its version 7.0 update.
This Galaxy Tab E Nougat update has firmware version T377R4TYU1CQI4. The Android security patch level is August 2017. Samsung has been prioritizing the Blueborne fix which is why updates with the September patch haven’t started rolling out as yet.
