Based on a tentative roadmap Samsung shared earlier this year, the One UI 5.1 update for the Galaxy Tab S7 FE is running a bit late. Or “was running late” would be more accurate, as the latest firmware is now finally available for the Galaxy Tab S7 FE in Europe and possibly other markets.
We can confirm that Samsung is distributing One UI 5.1 for the international 5G variant (SM-T736B). But it is possible that the Wi-Fi-only Fan Edition tablet also received the firmware. In any case, for the 5G model, the latest release comes in as firmware version T736BXXU2CWC5.
Samsung's Fan Edition tablet is getting the treatment it deserves
Among the many One UI 5.1 improvements introduced to the Galaxy Tab S7 FE, you will find:
