Galaxy Tab A 8.0 gets the July 2021 security update


Last updated: July 5th, 2021 at 12:51 UTC+02:00

Samsung was the first Android OEM to release the July 2021 Android security patch. The rollout of the latest security patch started with the Galaxy S10 series last week, and it expanded to the Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy Tab Active 2. Now, the update is rolling out to the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019).

The latest software update for the LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 bears firmware version T295XXU4CUF8, and it includes the July 2021 security patch. This new firmware is currently available in Bolivia, but it could expand to other markets in the next few days. Samsung is yet to reveal the complete list of bugs and vulnerabilities it has fixed with the July 2021 security patch, but it should fix the Android Auto issue that some users were facing.

If you are a Galaxy Tab A 8.0 user in Bolivia, you might have received a notification of the new update. If you haven’t, you can check for the update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. Alternatively, you can download the newest firmware for your tablet from our firmware section and flash it manually.

Samsung had launched the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 in July 2019 with Android 9.0 onboard. The device received the Android 10-based One UI 2 update last year and the Android 11-based One UI 3.1 update last week.
