Galaxy Tab E 8.0 Android Oreo update
- Android Oreo released on 29 Nov 2018
The refreshed Galaxy Tab E 8.0 came by in late 2017 with Android 7.1 Nougat preinstalled. As of November 29, Verizon Wireless has released an update to Android 8.0 Oreo for the slate, which also comes with a new Android security patch for the month of November 2018.
With Oreo now out of the way, what about Android 9 Pie update?
Galaxy Tab E 8.0 Android 9 Pie update
- Not eligible for Pie
- But this is not the official word from Samsung
The Galaxy Tab E 8.0 Refresh is an entry-level tablet that not even some expected to get past Nougat, but Samsung did a great job of pushing it to Oreo. However, knowing Samsung, it is unlikely that the Tab E 8.0 Refresh will get a second major OS upgrade to Pie, so dont get your hopes too high.
Of course, this is just us speculating, but the final word will come from Samsung and well update this page if and when the company makes it official.
