And Galaxy Tab S5e is the latest Galaxy Tablet to receive the Android 11 based One UI 3.1 update. Galaxy Tab S5e comes with many new features which you will get to know in the changelog.
Samsung started the One UI 3.1 update starting from Tab S7 and since then many Galaxy devices received the update. And now Galaxy Tab S5e users will also get to experience the latest update. The Galaxy tablet was released back in 2019 and later the device received Android 10. And getting the stable Android 11 in just three months after Samsung makes One UI 3.0 official is not bad for a two-year-old tablet.
The Galaxy Tab S5e Android 11 update comes with the firmware number T72XXXU2DUD1. For now, the update is available in Russia and the UK. But it is Samsung, which means you don’t have to wait much if it is not available in your region. The Galaxy Tab S5e Android 11 update brings the March 2021 security patch.
Android 11 update for Galaxy Tab S5e is a major update that brings many new features. And so, you can expect the update size will be bigger. The One UI 3.1 update on Galaxy Tab S5e is seeding with features such as Private Share, Nearby Share, Eye Comfort Shield, Remove location data, Auto Switch feature, along with a few other features. Obviously, the newer update is based on the Android 11. For now, we don’t have the full changelog but once we have it, we will share it with you.
The Galaxy Tab S5e Android 11 update is available over the air in Russia and the United Kingdom. And these updates will be available to users in batches. In case you haven’t received the update, then you can manually check for the update by going to Settings > Software Update. It will show the available update, click on Download & Install to get the update.
As mentioned earlier other regions will join the party soon. And so, you will have to wait for the update. Although you can immediately get the update by flashing available Firmware, we don’t recommend flashing firmware from different regions as it can break the device.
You can download the firmware from Frija tool, SamFirm tool, Samsung Firmware Downloader, or SamMobile website. If you are using one of the tools then enter your model and country code and download the firmware. Once downloaded, you can flash the firmware using Odin Tool. Then flash the Galaxy Tab S5e Firmware to your device. If you want to do so, then I recommend you take a backup prior to diving into the process. That’s it.
