Most Samsung mobile devices lined up for Android 12 have already received the update, but not all. Some are still waiting in line, but the line is getting shorter, and the latest Galaxy device to join the Android 12 party is the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite (2021).
Samsung is presently rolling out Android 12 and One UI 4.1 for the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite (SM-T225) in Germany and Hong Kong. The update can be identified by firmware version T225XXU1BVGB. It also happens to include the July 2022 security patch.
As usual, Samsung customers in eligible markets should be able to download the latest update once they tap the notification or by opening the Settings app on their devices, accessing “Software update,” and tapping “Download and install.”
