The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 & Galaxy Tab A (2017) Wi-Fi models are now receiving Android Pie update in the United States. The global variants of both tablets (LTE & Wi-Fi) have already received the latest Android Pie 9.0 update in many countries, and now it is spreading in the US. The firmware version T820XXU3CSH9 (via Reddit) is seeding on the Galaxy Tab S3 Wi-Fi version, and it is 1280MB in size. The Galaxy Tab A Wi-Fi model is getting T380DXU3CSHC (Via Reddit), and it also carries the same 1280MB weight.
The Galaxy Tab S3 has upgraded with Google’s August security patch, but unluckily Tab A has updated with the June security patch when most of the devices are running on August & September security patches.
The new version will provide Samsung’s One UI interface on both models with lots of goodies. After the update, you will notice some improvements over the existing apps. It also includes some newly added features and the improved overall security of the devices. Both models were released in 2017 with the Nougat version, and later both have promoted to Orio 8.0 version, so this might be the last major update to both devices from Samsung.
If you are living in the US, then you can check for the Android Pie firmware by visiting Settings, Software Update and then Download updates manually option. The new software is spreading over-the-air so it will take some time to reach out to every user. The software for Galaxy tab S3 has rolled out since a few days ago, and there is a chance you have already received it. The LTE variants of both tablets in the US still have to receive a Pie update. We will inform you when available in the country.
