October 2020 security update reaches the Galaxy Tab S7 series worldwide

We’re nearing the end of the month and Samsung continues to roll out the October 2020 security patch to various devices, the latest of which is the Galaxy Tab S7. In fact, the LTE and 5G versions of both the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ are receiving the October 2020 security patch as we speak, and the package is available for download in dozens of markets.

Samsung doesn’t seem to be testing the waters with this latest release so the update is not limited to a few European countries. The firmware coupled with the October 2020 security patch is widely available across different continents and Galaxy Tab S7 / Tab S7+ owners should be able to download it regardless of whether they own the LTE or 5G variant. Simply open Settings on your tablet, head down to Software update, and tap Download and install.

The latest update for the Galaxy Tab S7 series is identified by firmware version TxxxXXU1ATJ4 and assuming you won’t be able to readily download it over the air, you can easily acquire the update from SamMobile’s firmware archive and install it on your tablet using a Windows PC. Just make sure you’re downloading the right firmware for your particular model number and region.

The latest firmware update doesn’t seem to bring any new features to the already feature-packed Galaxy Tab S7 series but a higher security level is always welcomed, especially when considering the vulnerabilities that have been addressed through the latest release. But in case you own the Galaxy Tab S7 / Galaxy Tab S7+ and you’ve noticed other changes to the user experience following this update, feel free to let us know in the comment section below.
