Galaxy Tab A7 Lite and Galaxy Tab S7 FE will only get quarterly software updates

Samsung had unveiled two tablets—Galaxy Tab A7 Lite and Galaxy Tab S7 FE—a few days ago. The two devices are trimmed down versions of the Galaxy Tab A7 and the Galaxy Tab S7+, respectively. The company has now revealed how frequently it would release software updates for its two latest tablets.

According to Samsung’s website, the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite and the Galaxy Tab S7 FE will receive quarterly software updates (one update in three months). While the decision might seem okay for the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite after considering its low price, Samsung could’ve offered monthly updates to the Galaxy Tab S7 FE. Although not ideal, all Samsung tablets (including Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+) get quarterly software updates.
