Samsung is continuing its Android 11 update party, and the latest Galaxy device to get the Android 11 update is the Galaxy Tab A7. The entry-level tablet was launched in late 2020 with Android 10 onboard, and it is now getting updated to the latest version of One UI and is getting a newer security patch.

The LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab A7 (SM-T505) has started getting the Android 11-based One UI 3.1 update in various European countries and the UK. The new software update, which bumps up the tablet’s firmware version to T505XXU3BUD7, also brings the March 2021 security patch. The update has various new features and a refreshed UI design.

While we don’t have an official changelog for the new update yet, it should include improved UI design, one-time permissions, auto permissions reset, chat bubbles, a centralized media player widget below quick settings toggles, a conversations section in the notifications area, quicker access to smart home controls, and improved performance and security.

One UI 3.1 features include more Dynamic Lockscreen options and lockscreen widgets, improved Digital Wellbeing and parental controls, newer versions of stock apps with new features, improved Samsung Keyboard and Samsung Internet apps, the ability to remove GPS location data from images while sharing them, and a newer design in the Device Care section.

If you are a Galaxy Tab A7 user in Europe or the UK, you can manually check for the latest update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the new firmware from our firmware section and flash it manually. Samsung could roll out the new update to the Galaxy Tab A7 in more markets over the next few days.
