The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite 2022 Edition is a good entry-level tablet with the S Pen stylus, that's running with Android 13, and should get updated to Android 14. We get a solid screen, a good-enough performance, and a premium-feeling design. Sadly, the price hasn't changed compared to its predecessor.

The Galaxy Tab S7 Fan Edition is receiving the latest update in some markets, following the standard Galaxy Tab S7 series which received the update recently. The update is the May 2023 version.

The Galaxy Tab S7 FE is receiving the May 2023 update in Brazil (SM-T735) and Europe (SM-T733) by Samsung. The SM-T736B 5G version does not appear to have access to the update yet. The firmware version for the update in Europe is T733XXS3CWD1, while in Brazil, Galaxy Tab S7 FE users can identify the update through firmware version T735XXU3CWE1.

It appears that the firmware versions indicate that the update for Europe only includes the May 2023 security patch, while the update for Brazil includes other features in addition to improved security. It is uncertain which features the update for Brazil will include, but it is possible that the Galaxy Tab S7 FE will now have access to the Image Clipper tool.

The May 2023 security patch addresses over 70 security issues found in Samsung tablets and phones, including flaws in the bootloader and Exynos modems. If you are a Galaxy Tab S7 FE user, you can get the update by going to Settings > Software update > Download and install whenever available.
