Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Officially Certified With Android 9.0 Pie

Great news this week for owners of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, as the Android 9.0 Pie update have been officially certified for the S3 tablet through the official Wi-Fi body.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is Samsung's flagship S-series 9.7-inch Android tablet with digitizer and keyboard cover, launched in 2017, before the S-series grew to 10.5 inches with the other Android 9.0 tablets, Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e.

All versions of Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 have been certified with the Android 9.0 update, including both Wi-Fi and 4G LTE models, with SM-T820 and SM-T825 / SM-T827 C/NO/Y/X model numbers all being certified with the Android update.

What's next is the actual OTA rollout of the Android 9.0 OS to the Tab S3 tablets. According to the Samsung roadmap, the update was intended to start in September for the Tab S3. But with the certification this week, it may be that the OS update rolls out a little sooner.

Apart from these S-series tablets running Android 9.0, Samsung's new Galaxy Tab A 10.1 tablet also runs Android 9.0.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 Android 9.0 update have also been officially approved, but the rollout has not started yet, and Samsung's roadmap indicated that the actual update month would be October.
