While a lot of top smartphones are starting to benefit from Android 13, not many people are betting that we will also see the new operating system on any tablet. But once again, we have to realize that the tech world works in mysterious ways!
After pushing the Android 13 update to many of its top smartphones, such as those from the Galaxy S21, Z Fold 4, and S20 series, Samsung is now doing the same in the case of its Galaxy Tab S8 tablet series, according to SAMMOBILE.
Europeans get it first
If you live in either one of the countries of Europe and you own a 5G model from the Galaxy Tab S8 series, the stable Android 13 (One UI 5.0) update should arrive to you at any time from now. While those having the standard Galaxy Tab S8 tablet will get the update with firmware version X706BXXU2BVK4, those with a Galaxy Tab S8+ will have the chance to benefit from the update with the firmware version X806BXXU2BVK4. Last but not least, if you have a Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, the firmware version of the update in question will be X906BXXU2BVK4.
The new Android 13 update also brings along the November security patch that fixes a lot of security and privacy vulnerabilities for the devices receiving it.
If patience is not among your virtues, you can always manually check if there’s a new update in store for you by heading over to the Settings menu of your gadget. From that point, you can tap ‘Software update’ and, ultimately, ‘Download and Install.’
After all, considering that the Tab S8 tablet is one of the best Android-based tablets available on the market, the move to update its operating system to Android 13 isn’t so surprising.
