Samsung has been trying to keep its number 1 place in the market intact after its debacle last year following the Note 7. It is a known fact that the Note 7 debacle cost Samsung very much in terms of money as well as reputation. This has been forgotten mostly because of the tremendous success of its Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones. The one thing Samsung still needs to improve on is the support it provides to the old models which is not that good to be honest. Though, the company has been trying to change this reputation. Samsung has been constantly pushing security patch updates and the Android version updates to all of its phones worldwide.
The latest devices to get the April security patch from Samsung are tablets from the Samsung Tab A and Note lineup. The 8-inch Tab A LTE is receiving the update as build number P355MUBU1BQC2 while the 2014 version of Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE is getting the update as build number P605XXU1EQD1. The firmware not only brings the monthly security patch but also fixes regular bugs and enhances device stability.
As the update is being rolled out over the air, it may take a while to appear on your device. Alternately, you can check for it manually by heading to Settings > About device > System updates. Before hitting the download button ensure that the battery of your device is at least 50 percent charged and connected to a WiFi network.
Meanwhile, the 8-inch WiFi variant of the Tab A received April security patch early this month as software version T350XXU1BQD1. The Tablet runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and the Nougat update is expected to hit the device next month.
Make sure to download the update as soon as it hits your device as it helps in keeping your device up-to-date and keeps your device secure from attacks.
