    Galaxy Tab S4 October security update rolling out

    Firmware
    By 

    Last updated: October 7th, 2019 at 07:13 UTC+02:00

    Strike out another device on the list of Galaxy devices that are getting the October 2019 security patch: The Galaxy Tab S4 is now getting the October security update in a number of markets. These markets include Peru, Chile, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago, Bolivia, Colombia, and Brazil; only the LTE variant is being updated at the moment, but the Wi-Fi-only variant should soon join the party. The software version accompanying the new update is T835UBS3BSI4.

    The October security patch fixes a “high severity vulnerability” that has been discovered to be affecting multiple known phone models that include the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S8, and Galaxy S9. More than 100 million Android users are said to be vulnerable, and it is also being said that an Israel-based cyber intelligence firm is already exploiting the vulnerability. That makes the October security patch quite important, and it's possibly why Samsung isn't wasting any time in bringing it to as many devices as possible, although none of the Galaxy devices listed as being vulnerable have received the new patch just yet.

    Own a Galaxy Tab S4 and live in one of the countries mentioned above? You can update your tablet over the air by opening the Settings app, selecting Software update, then tapping the Download and install option. You can also jump on to the newest software — which doesn't bring anything but the October patch — by downloading the firmware for it from our firmware archive and flashing it on your Galaxy Tab S4 using a Windows PC.
