Galaxy Tab S2 Pie update news and more: December 2018 security patch released for model SM-T819Y

Latest news

Update [January 11, 2019]: Despite its age, Samsung is still rolling out software updates to the Galaxy Tab S2. The variant in question has model number SM-T819Y and no, this isn’t a major OS upgrade, rather, the slate is receiving a new Android security patch for the month of December 2018.

The update has software version T819YDXU2BRL1 and it has been spotted in India, where an OTA is available. As always, OTA updates take time, but since the rollout started several days ago, you should have received the download notification by now or early next week.

Original article below:

Samsung originally launched the Galaxy Tab S2 in the year 2015, but it refreshed the device with some changes in specs the following year. In 2017, Samsung released the true successor to its Tab S2 in the form of Galaxy Tab S3 (update and firmware) but while Oreo rollout for the latter is a given, doubts remain on whether Samsung would take a lenient look on the former’s Android 8.0 update, even if it means only the 2016 edition.

You will find download links for the major updates Samsung has released for the Galaxy Tab S2 here, in the form of its firmware. You can use firmware to update your Galaxy Tab S2 to latest software available manually. For help with manual installation of Tab S2 firmware, check out the link provided in the last section of this article.

Galaxy Tab S2 Android 8.0 and Android 9.0 update eligibility

If you ask us — and our guess is as good as yours — we don’t think Samsung would release Android 8.0 for a tablet it launched back in 2015, on Android 5.0 Lollipop. With that said, don’t even think about Android 9 Pie, the latest and greatest from Google.

Sure, you could argue that at least the 2016 edition, launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on-board deserves Oreo, and we would agree, but what we need here is Samsung agreeing on that. Until then, nothing is clear. Once again, you can only dream about Pie as far as the 2016 Tab S2 is concerned.
