What you need to know

  • Samsung is rolling out OneUI 2.0 and Android 10 to some of its tablets.
  • It's coming to the S4 and S5e in the U.S, Canada, and Western Europe.
  • Android 10 and OneUI 2.0 brings a revamped dark mode, improved permissions, and refreshed in-box apps.

Samsung has started rolling out Android 10 to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e and the much older S4 in the U.S., Canada, and countries like the UK and France (via Android Police). Both tablets are some of the best Samsung tablets has had to offer in the years prior, and a late update should breathe more life in them.

The company will also be stacking on One UI 2.0, alongside Android 10, so users can expect an improved dark mode, a refined permissions interface, refreshed in-box apps from Samsung, and various multitasking improvements. We've done a full look at Android 10 with Samsung's One UI here, so you can have a look at what you can expect over here.

Samsung is said to be launching new tablets later this year. The Galaxy Tab S7 and S7 Plus are on the way, both with excellent new large screens, powerful processors, and the possibility of 5G support. You may not get stock Android tablets from Google anymore, but let it not be said that Samsung hasn't been there to pick up the slack.

Best Samsung Tablets in 2020

  • It's sad that they will update those tablets, but not the Galaxy S8.
  • Yep 1000 percent the S8 should get 10!!
  • I have an S5e so this is good to know!
  • Nice. I'm upgrading my S4 now.
  • I have the update on my S5e but the older headline still doesn't apply, it's still nowhere near competing with an iPad other than social media, web browsing, and email aspects. It's fine for what I bought it for: a reading tablet for my bedside. But I'm not about to do the same thing on it as I would an 11" iPad Pro.
  • Is there a way to block the update, lol? Since they are removing support for running Linux in Dex.
