5,100Samsung had unveiled two tablets—Galaxy Tab A7 Lite and Galaxy Tab S7 FE—a few days ago. The two devices are trimmed down versions of the Galaxy Tab A7 and the Galaxy Tab S7+, respectively. The company has now revealed how frequently it would release software updates for its two latest tablets.
According to Samsung’s website, the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite and the Galaxy Tab S7 FE will receive quarterly software updates (one update in three months). While the decision might seem okay for the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite after considering its low price, a quarterly software update schedule for the Galaxy Tab S7 FE does seem odd. The Galaxy Tab S7 FE costs €649 in Europe for the 5G variant. For just €50 more, you can get the Galaxy Tab S7 LTE with a 120Hz display, a much faster processor, better front and rear cameras.
Even some Galaxy A series smartphones, such as the Galaxy A52 (priced at €409) and the Galaxy A52 5G (priced at €489), receive monthly software updates. So, it seems odd that none of the Galaxy Tab devices is listed under Samsung’s monthly security update schedule.
