Galaxy Tab S5e starts getting the April 2021 security patch


Last updated: April 24th, 2021 at 11:15 UTC+02:00

Samsung had released the Android 11 update to the Galaxy Tab S5e earlier this month. However, that update lacked the latest security patch. The company has now started rolling out the April 2021 security patch to the LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab S5e (SM-T725). However, it is only available in a few markets where the tablet still hasn’t received the Android 11 update.

The new software update for the Galaxy Tab S5e, featuring the April 2021 security patch, has been released in Brazil and Mexico. It has firmware version T725XXS2CUD1, and it is still based on Android 10. While we don’t have the official changelog for the update yet, we don’t expect it to include any new software features. The April 2021 security patch fixes many vulnerabilities, including over 30 fixes from Google and 21 fixes from Samsung. As usual, it could also include stability improvements and other bug fixes.

If you are a Galaxy Tab S5e user in any of the countries mentioned above, you can manually check for the update by navigating to Settings » Software update » Download and install. We hope that Samsung will release the April 2021 security patch to those Galaxy Tab S5e units which have already received the Android 11 update. To those waiting for their Galaxy Tab S5e to receive the Android 11 update, it looks like the One UI 3 update might not arrive this month.

Samsung’s mid-range tablet was launched in April 2019 with Android 9 on board. It received the Android 10-based One UI 2 update in June 2020, and in some markets, Samsung released the Android 11-based One UI 3 update earlier this month.
