As of now, the update is only out for the variants with model numbers SM-T515 and SM-P205; basically the ones with LTE support. Meanwhile the WiFi only models will probably get the new OS in the following days

But lets get back into the firmware itself which comes with the version T515XXU4BTFK for the Galaxy Tab A 10.1; with the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 getting the version P205DXU5BTFB. Both devices are also getting updated to the security patch for the month of July.

It’s important to point out that the updates arrive with Samsung’s OneUI 2.0. So, the latest version of the operating system – OneUI 2.1 – has been held back by Samsung. That does not mean the tablets will never get the newer One UI 2.1 but it sure looks like it for now.
