Apart from its efforts to streamline its products, Samsung still has enough of them by name sometimes confusing. Not all of them are made the same and, not surprising, not all of them get the same treatment as far as it comes to updates. It’s sometimes true even for medium devices that are still supported, especially Samsung mid-range tablets. That’s what happened to the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 of 2019 which brought a new pen getting an Android 11 update and one UI 3.1 long.
To be fair, Samsung does show in the middle class 2019 some love is updated for years. It was launched in 2019 with Android 9.0 pie and updated to one UI 2.0 with Android 10 years ago. The problem is always one of the time, with Android 12 just a few months. But, as they say, it’s better to be late than never.
Whether one UI 3.1 and Android 11 are, of course, big updates carrying a large range of good changes under the hood and at UI. Android 11 brings changes to the underlying framework, especially when it comes to privacy, while also new features such as floating chat bubbles and smart home menus through the power button.
One UI 3.1, on the other hand, perfects the new design language that began Samsung a few years ago. This update also brings improvements to Samsung’s stock applications such as Samsung Internet. Unfortunately, it also deletes several features such as sharing Wi-Fi Direct and Samsung recommends the use of Android nearby instead.
Updates are not only in major changes but also in size at 1.3GB, so you should prepare a little tablet storage space for it. Governor Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) with US age and price level, this could be the last main renewal and recognized the last for medium from the slate.
