Samsung’s recent efforts to proactively release Android 10 on its flagship phones have left us impressed, considering that the Korean brand was known for its extended release programs not long ago. So far, at least, it’s tied to the Android 10 launch roadmap that the company revealed in late November. After updating many of its recent smartphones, Samsung is now also participating in its range of tablets, starting with the 2019 flagship. Numerous reports from users from Germany have emerged, revealing that the Galaxy Tab S6 is receiving the Android 10 update, in line with its expected April release.
Our tipster in Germany got the latest version of One UI based on Android 10 on its LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab S6 today. The T865XXU2BTC7 operating system version brings the March 2020 security patch and brings a number of Android 10 and One UI 2.1 features, including an enhanced dark mode, gesture navigation and digital wellness functionality. A Redditor also shared a screenshot of an updated software information page to confirm the version details. With this update, the Tab S6 skipped One UI 2.0 and went directly to 2.1, which debuted with the Galaxy S20 line and was launched on old Samsung flagships only last week.
As has always been the case with major updates, Samsung is launching this build to a limited extent, first to users of Tab S6 in Germany. If past implementations are something to follow, the update should not take long to cover most of the key markets, including those in North America and elsewhere. It weighs about 2.2 GB and should automatically hit your device if you are in the region, or you can manually verify it from settings menu.
The Verizon implementation
The Verizon model of Tab S6 also now receives Android 10, according to the courier’s website. The update has a build number of QP1A.190711.020.T867VVRU2BTC4 and comes with the same March 2020 patch level as the OTA for unlocked devices.
Wide availability in the United States
After hitting the Verizon model, the Android 10 update is reaching the Wi-Fi only variant of Tab S6 in the United States. The build version T860XXU1BTD1 / T860OXM1BTD1 weighs around 2.3 GB and carries the same security patch as March 2020.
Implementation of T-Mobile
T-Mobile has now released information on the Android 10 update for its version of Tab S6. The OTA has a build number of “T867USQU2BTE1” and includes both Android 10 and the May 2020 security patch level.
The package reaches 2.1 GB and if you have not yet received it on your T-Mobile Tab S6, go to Settings> Software update to check.
