Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, Tab S2, Tab 4 and Tab E receiving OTA update with June security patch

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

Samsung is rolling out a new software update to its Android tablets which include Galaxy Tab S3, Tab S2, Tab 4, and the Galaxy Tab E.

The update installs the June security patch on all these handsets and is arriving with the following build respectively.

  • Galaxy Tab S3 (WiFi): T820XXU1AQF3 
  • Galaxy Tab S3 (LTE): T825XXU1AQF3 
  • Galaxy Tab E: T560NUUEU1BQF1
  • Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 (3G): T531XXU1AQD1 
  • Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 (LTE): T715CZCU2CQF1

As is the case with any security patch, the latest update also adds an additional layer of security on your tablet by getting rid of vulnerabilities that could compromise the device’s security.

Also, it brings several bug fixes and performance improvements to the tablet which is sort of common with any update.

The company has already seeded the update over-the-air (OTA) so you should receive a notification stating the same on your tablet anytime now.

In case you didn’t receive the notification yet, you can manually check for the update by visiting Settings > About > System updates. Ensure you have enough charging left on the tablet before clicking the download button.

  1. It might have been more helpful if the update notification mentioned it was an Android system update rather than the too vague “Software Update” heading. Nowhere in the 2 screens provided do they bother to explain who they are, what’s to be updated or why. Who blindly agrees to allow an update from someone that almost looks as though they’re making an effort to avoid identifying themselves? I had to search in order to know if this was an authentic update and not something malicious. How dumb is it to push a security patch in a manner that looks suspicious?

    1. I agree with you 100% However, Iam still not sure, considering this is the only place I have found any information. Yes, very dumb and suspicious, we are talking Samsung not some second rate company. Their logo is on everything, yet not on the update notification that we are suposed to trust. Hmmm! So, did you do it?

    2. In searching for details, I found a few other sites with news of this update release. Ultimately though, I did as suggested in this article’s concluding paragraph and used android’s own “Settings” to search for signs of an available update. Once that update completed, all was as it should be, and no further vague “notice” has appeared. So it clearly was an authentic notice even as it was very poorly pushed to users with no identification of its source or purpose. As it appears to have been an update to deal only with security issues, there’s nothing I’ve seen so far that suggests any change in Android features.
