BREAKING: Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Tab S7+ start receiving One UI 3.1 update
After rolling out the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update to most of its high-end smartphones, Samsung has started rolling out the Android 11 update to the Galaxy Tab S7 and the Galaxy Tab S7+. However, the new update brings along One UI 3.1 instead of One UI 3.0, which is a surprise. The company’s flagship tablets have become the first devices to receive the One UI 3.1 update.
The Galaxy Tab S7 (SM-T875) LTE, Galaxy Tab S7+ LTE (SM-T975N), and the Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G (SM-T976N) are now receiving the Android 11-based One UI 3.1 update in South Korea. The new software update comes with firmware versions T875NKOU1BUA8, T975NKOU1BUA8, and T976NKOU1BUA8, respectively, for the three tablets. The file size of the new update is over 2.4GB, so we advise you to download it using Wi-Fi.
The new update brings many Android 11 features, including one-time permissions, chat bubbles, a dedicated media playback widget, a conversations section in the notifications shade, and improved Digital Wellbeing. It also brings One UI 3.1 features such as the refreshed UI design, improved stock apps, Private Share, the ability to remove GPS location data from images while sharing, improved performance, improved memory allocation, more lock screen widgets, and video background for calls.
If you are a Galaxy Tab S7 or a Galaxy Tab S7+ user in South Korea, and if you haven’t received the update yet, you can check for it manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. It is likely that Samsung will roll out One UI 3.1 to the Galaxy Tab S7 series devices in other markets and to other Galaxy smartphones and tablets globally over the next few months.
