If you’re a Samsung fan, then you already know that the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 launched about a year ago, in 2016. The tablet was an immediate success do to its great specs and overall good value for money. And now, as per reports, the tablet is receiving its first major system update in the form of the new Android OS, the Nougat 7.0. Both the Wi-Fi only and LTE-enabled models of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 will be receiving the update. However, because the update is distributed over-the-air, some users already started receiving it, while others are still waiting.
For the Wi-Fi-only variant of the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 tablet, the update comes under build number P580KXU1BQD9. On the other hand, the LTE-enabled version will receive the update under build number P58N0KOU1BDQ9. However, in spite of different build numbers, the update will do essentially the same thing for both devices.
The two variants of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 will have improved battery life and an increased performance level following the upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat. On top of that, the update will also bring new multitasking features, as well as changes to the user interface and improved notification panels and settings.
If you can’t wait to get the update OTA like you should, you can try to kick it off manually from your tablet’s Settings menu. However, these things are best when left to roll out by themselves. In this way, you will make sure that the installation of the update runs smoothly, and your device will be in great shape after it. Also, keep in mind that, when the update does come, you need at least a half-full battery in order for the download and installation to not be interrupted by a shutdown.
