Samsung has strictly followed its Android 11-based One UI 3 rollout schedule and even surprised us with some initial updates. Shortly after pushing new software to its flagship smartphones of the last two years, South Korean giants are now rolling out Android 11 to the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7 +. However, instead of the One UI 3, Android tablets are getting the One UI 3.1, making them the only devices other than the S21 series to date.
Reported by Tijenhelp, The Galaxy Tab S7 (SM-T875), Galaxy Tab S7 + LTE (SM-T975N), and Galaxy Tab S7 + 5G are currently receiving software updates in South Korea with firmware versions T875NKOU1BUA8, T975NKOU1BUA8, And T976NKOU1BUA8, Respectively.

One of UI UI 3.1’s new features – including private shares, improved performance and memory allocation, and the chat bubble – seems to be the most interesting one-second screen, which is Samsung’s answer to Apple’s Sidkar. This allows users to use the Tab S7 or S7 + as a second monitor or drawing pad with select Samsung Windows PCs – Galaxy Book Flex, Galaxy Book Flex Alpha, Galaxy Book Ion, Galaxy Book S and Notebook Plus. But as seen in the image above, it also works with Odyssey gaming laptops.
According to the official rollout schedule, the Tab S7 series is only due to receive Android 11 in March. But since some users are already receiving updates in South Korea, it would not be surprising if Samsung delivers it to other markets earlier than expected.
Samsung has gone ahead to make the Tab S7 and Tab S7 + One UI 3.1 update official with a press release on its news site. It confirms the second screen feature, and shows some other new features as well.
Another is the ability to continue applications and copy-paste on other devices, which you have left on your Galaxy S21-series phone.
There is also wireless keyboard sharing, which lets you use your Tab S7 + Book Cover Keyboard to write things on your S21.
Finally, there’s the Auto Switch, which allows you to automatically stream audio to your Galaxy Buds Pro depending on the situation.
