Samsung releases One UI 5.1 update for Galaxy Tab S7 and S8 Series

In the last two weeks, Samsung pushed One UI 5.1 to the previous generation flagship phones, 2022 A-series phones, and one M-series smartphone. And now the smartphone manufacturer is ready to bring the new firmware to the big-screen tablets. Samsung has started pushing the One UI 5.1 to Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S7 series with a slew of new features and enhancements. Read along to know more details about the new update.

Samsung is rolling out the latest software to tablets in stages, which will take some time to reach every device. At the moment, the over-the-air update is seeding in Spain, Korea, India, and UK, for the Galaxy Tab S7 series with the T970XXU2DWB2 firmware version. Whereas the Tab S8 picks up the new software with the X906BXXU3BWB4 software version, the update is already available in many regions.

One UI 5.1 is a major incremental upgrade over the recently released Android 13-based One UI 5.0. So, as a major upgrade, it requires a big chunk of data for downloading, make sure your tablet has enough storage space to install the new software.

Samsung is pushing the new software to Galaxy Tab S7 and S8 with a bunch of new features including Improved Multitasking in DeX mode, a new battery widget for the home screen, support for family sharing album in the Gallery app, quick access to the Expert RAW camera app, improved AR emojis and AR zone, enhancements for stock apps, collaborating in Samsung Notes, Samsung Internet, and more.
