T-Mobile and Verizon have released software updates for the Samsung Galaxy tab E tablets. It has brought the OS version to Android 7.0 Nougat. It is a big thing for an entry-level/lower-midrange tablet that launched two years ago. The Tab was launched with Android Lollipop out of the box.
T-Mobile has rolled out a new firmware for the Tab E 8.0. Since then that is the one version the carrier is selling. There is no Tab E 9.6 on T-Mobile to be releasing an update for. The Un-carrier doesn’t go into specifics on the changelog. They should be pretty similar to the Verizon.
Verizon, on the other hand, has issued firmwares for both the Galaxy Tab E 8.0 and the Tab E 9.6. The Android security patch is the August 1 one. The update has the new Android version. Other than this, it has refreshed Samsung UX, the easier multi-tasking and the improved battery management options.
Installing the update is very simple. If you do not get the update, then download the source link. You can download the file from there and flash them from your computer.
