Galaxy Tab A (2017) picks up January 2020 security patch in new update

The way Samsung is rolling out new security patches to its devices is becoming more and more impressive with each passing month. The company has constantly been releasing security patches before details of a patch have been revealed by Google, and 2020 looks set to be no different. Quite a few Galaxy devices have already picked up the January 2020 security update, and another device is now joining the list.

The Galaxy Tab A (2017) is getting a software update in Australia, Singapore, and Malaysia that bundles the latest Android security patch. The Tab A (2017) is one of many Galaxy A series devices that have made the jump to the January patch. The Galaxy A10, Galaxy A10s, Galaxy A20, Galaxy A30, and Galaxy A50 have received the January update in a couple of markets as well.

The Tab A (2017)’s update comes with software version T38*DXU3CSL2. The update should technically have some changes and improvements other than the security patch based on the software version, but at this time it’s unclear what those changes actually are. As always, feel free to tell us in the comments if you’ve received the update on your device.

To check if the update is available for your Galaxy Tab A (2017), go into the tablet’s settings, navigate to Software update, then select Download and install. Alternatively, you can download the latest firmware from our firmware archive and install it on your tablet using a Windows computer.

So, what’s so special about the Tab A (2017) that it gets an update to the latest security patch, yet the Tab A (2016) got the cubed-root of diddly-squat since it was released? Maybe Samsung doesn’t consider that spending around £120 is suffice to their enormous profits? The (2016) didn’t even get a software upgrade from the Android 5.1 it was pre-loaded with!!
