Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 receiving Android Pie, Galaxy S7 looking unlikely
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, which nonetheless packs a punch as arguably one of the vital highly effective Android tablets available on the market is now receiving Android Pie. And though there have been rumors and stories that the Samsung Galaxy S7 was set to obtain Android Pie, it now appears extremely unlikely.
After an enormous rollout to the Galaxy S9, Word 9, S8, and Word 8, homeowners of the Galaxy Tab S4 can rejoice on the Android Pie plus OneUI overhaul. Given the pill was launched at the exact same time because the Galaxy Note 9, a full Android Pie expertise was at all times anticipated.
At current, there are confirmed stories (by way of XDA-Developers) of the replace rolling out in France with firmware model T835XXU2BSD1. That One UI construct is proscribed to LTE variations of the Tab S4, however does bode nicely for the replace reaching Wi-Fi fashions within the subsequent few days and weeks. The complete replace additionally brings with it the March 2019 safety patch.
It should even be fascinating to see how Android Pie and One UI differs on the Galaxy Tab S4 to the usual model. And if it will likely be the identical as discovered on cell units just like the Galaxy Word 9. Is it merely One UI scaled up, or are there new extras designed particularly for the elevated actual property?
We’ve additionally heard stories that the Samsung Galaxy S7 might obtain an Android Pie replace, however that also appears unlikely. A latest certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance had seemingly proven the Galaxy S7 operating Android Pie firmware simply days in the past.
The issue is: that itemizing was since amended and the unique submitting was eliminated completely. This removing hinted at a mistake and due to some digging by the oldsters over at SamMobile, they’ve identified that this might have merely been a typo because the Galaxy S7 mannequin quantity is SM-G930F whereas the Galaxy Xcover 4 has the mannequin quantity SM-G390F.
A mixup appears believable as that latter system acquired certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance merely hours later, whereas the unique itemizing was retracted. It appears greater than possible that this was a mixup and we curse whoever had initially received our hopes up.
It’s an actual disgrace for anybody holding on to the Galaxy S7, as Android Pie has been teased, touted and has possible develop into torture at this level. For anybody holding out for the replace, it may be value trying elsewhere except you’re joyful being caught on Android Oreo. That stated, quarterly security updates are still pencilled in, so it’s not all dangerous information.
