One UI 2.5 update for Galaxy Tab S5e available
After a number of Samsung phones, the first tablets have now also started the One UI 2.5 upgrade. The Galaxy Tab S5e will be the first in the Netherlands.
Galaxy Tab S5e update to One UI 2.5
In August, Samsung announced the upgrade to One UI version 2.5 to several phones. Back then no tablets were explicitly mentioned by name, if it is now clear that at least the Galaxy Tab S6 and the Tab S5e will also get the upgrade. For the latter, it is now available in the Netherlands and Belgium.
An over 663MB update brings firmware version T72 * XXU1CTI1 to both the Wi-Fi and the 4G version of the Galaxy Tab S5e. In addition to a newer security patch – the one from August – comes a list of new features.
After installation, we will see changes and additions to the wireless DeX mode, Edge screen, and Live subtitle functions, improvements to the Camera app, and to the keyboard. You can even show those apps at once in Split View: you can "swipe" a third app from the edge panel. The update screen itself is also updated, as you can see during installation.
There will be no further significant changes for the camera app – at least, not those we could discover so quickly. It was quite basic, and will remain so.
The One UI 2.5 has already been rolled out to all Galaxy Tab S5e versions in the Netherlands and Belgium in recent days. You can install ‘m OTA on the Wi-Fi version (SM-T720) and on the 4G variant (SM-T725). Sooner or later, the notification that you can download it will automatically appear on your tablet. Of course you can also start a few things manually, via Settings -> Software update -> Download and install.
Have you installed it? What other changes do you encounter? What's cool and what's not?
PS: the Tab S6 will also receive the same upgrade soon. This is already available in some countries, but not yet in the Netherlands. But he can also roll out here at any time, so stay tuned …
