We have already seen that Samsung has been very busy updating all of its newer line of smartphones ranging from the S7 , the S6 and the Note 5 to the mid range J2 and J5 smartphones. Now, its the time for the updates to go to the Samsung’s tablet line. Samsung has already been selling tablets and refreshing it every year even though the sales of the tablet market are seeing a decline. Samsung has stuck to its strategy of providing tablets for a targeted audience regardless of sales.
A new firmware update is being rolled out by Samsung to two Samsung devices- Galaxy Ace 4 Neo Duos and Galaxy Tab E. The update comes with latest monthly security patch and is already rolling out as of the time of writing this article.
Along with the above mentioned devices, Samsung has also released the March Security Update to a couple of devices in the past week including Galaxy J5 2016, J2 Prime, Galaxy C5, Galaxy A7 2017, Grand Prime Plus, Galaxy A9 (in China) and Tab A 10.1 (2016).
The users of Galaxy Ace 4 Neo Duos have reported receiving the March security patch as build number G318MZDXS0AQC1. The same monthly update is hitting Galaxy Tab E units as build number G532GDDU1AQC2.
The case with monthly security update is that, it is being rolled out as OTA and in a phased manner. Therefore, it may take some time to reach you. If you are not willing to wait for a long time then you can check for it manually by heading to Settings > About device > System updates.
Note that your device is sufficiently charged and connected to a WiFi network before initiating the download. This will ensure that the update has been downloaded properly and the update process will continue seamlessly. Stay tuned as we know more about the updates to Samsung’s more devices.
