Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE starts receiving One UI 6.1 update in the US

Samsung has started rolling out the much-awaited One UI 6.1 update for Galaxy Tab S7 FE. At the time of writing, the update is accessible to Verizon cellular models; a wider rollout to commence in a matter of time.

The update for the Tab S7 FE comes with the UP1A.231005.007.T738USQU8DXE1 software version. It is a major incremental upgrade, which means it requires a huge chunk of storage space and data for installation.

Verizon is pushing the new software upgrade to the Fan Edition tablet with the February 2024 monthly security patch instead of the newer May security update. Another thing to keep in mind is, this update doesn’t bring any of the new Galaxy AI features.

One UI 6.1 update for Galaxy Tab S7 FE comes with features like enhancements for better battery lifespan, ability to customize alarms, Call & Message Continuity, a whole new way to manage Samsung account, and more.
