Android 9.0 Pie for the Galaxy Tab S4 now rolling out to the masses

Last month, Samsung treated the LTE model of the Galaxy Tab S4 to Android 9.0 Pie in a small selection of markets, including Brazil, France, India and Singapore, and now it’s arriving in Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Israel, Kazakhstan, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Switzerland, Ukraine and Uzbekistan — so suffice to say, it’s now a global rollout.

So, what does Pie bring to the table for the (LTE variant of the) Galaxy Tab S4? Well, aside from all the usual features baked into Android 9.0, it bundles Samsung’s stunning One UI interface, which was designed to deliver a more fluid and seamless user experience — and that’s what it does, introducing several must-have tools, like a system-wide Night mode that’s easier on the eyes in the evening.

Just like the release Sprint started distributing in the United States on Tuesday, April 30, the update also transports improvements for Bixby and support for HEIF images, as well as a new Adaptive Battery optimization tool and improved notification management. For a more detailed overview of what One UI brings to the table, be sure to take a look at our in-depth One UI Feature Focus series.

The update is, of course, being rolled out in stages. To check to see if it’s available for your Galaxy Tab S4, head into Settings, navigate to Software update, then select Download updates manually. Alternatively, you can always download the firmware from our database to flash it on to your handset manually — though you will need to be fairly tech-savvy if you choose to take that route.

No updates for the Tab S4 in the UK for 5 months and certainly no sign of the pie update either. Samsung this is no way to treat your customers who have purchased this premium tablet!!! Thanks.
