Firmware

Android 9.0 Pie now arriving on the Galaxy Tab S4

Samsung has begun rolling out the Android 9.0 Pie update for the LTE variant of Galaxy Tab S4, starting in France. The release comes four hours after it pushed a similar upgrade to the Galaxy J6 in Russia, and three days after it reached the unlocked Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 in the US.

From what we can tell, Samsung’s Android 9.0 update for the Galaxy Tab S4 bundles the standard suite of features baked into Pie, including App Actions and Slices, as well as Samsung’s stunning One UI interface, which was designed to deliver a more fluid and seamless user experience.

At the moment, France is the first region to have received the Android 9.0 Pie update — T835XXU2BSD1 — for the Galaxy Tab S4. And it’s only for the LTE model (SM-T835) — it should start making its way to the Wi-Fi model, and other countries, in the not-too-distant future.

Samsung is of course distributing the upgrade in France in stages. To check to see if it’s available for your slate, head into Settings, navigate to Software Update, then hit Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can grab the firmware from our database for manual flashing.
