Last month, Samsung launched two new tablets called Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G and Galaxy Tab A7 Lite. The former is an affordable variant of the company’s flagship tablet lineup while the latter is a cheaper tablet for normal uses like streaming, normal gaming, watching Samsung TV Plus, etc.

In terms of software, these tablets ship the last year’s Android 11 operating system on top of Samsung’s latest One UI version 3.1. However, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G is eligible for three major Android upgrades, but the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite will get only two, as per the company’s policy.


Aside from this, the South Korean tech giant also rolls out new security updates on a monthly, quarterly, and biannual basis. All the flagships and select mid-rangers get new security patches every month, while the remaining devices get quarterly.

Recently, Samsung published its revised software update schedule and eligibility. The latest data confirms that the Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G and Galaxy Tab A7 Lite are compatible with new security patches every three months for three years, later on, they will get two more updates in the last fourth year.
