The T-Mobile version of the Galaxy Tab S4 began receiving Android 9.0 today. The update bumps the Tab S4 to version T837TUVU1BSD4 and, as you might expect from an Android Pie update, it’s a biggie, coming in at 1513.26MB.
As with Pie updates for the Galaxy S9, Note 8, and other Samsung devices, this update for the Galaxy Tab S4 includes Samsung’s updated One UI user interface. One UI includes improvements like moving interactive elements closer to the bottom of the screen so they’re easier to reach as well as a Night Mode to make using the device at night easier on your eyes.
Other improvements packed into this update include support for Unicode 11.0 emojis with the Samsung Keyboard, settings that’ve been reorganized to make them easier to find, an improved version of Samsung’s Bixby assistant, and support for HEIF images.
The Android 9.0 Pie update is now rolling out over the air to T-Mobile’s Galaxy Tab S4, and TmoNews reader Peter got it today. If you’ve got a Galaxy Tab S4, you can wait for the update to come to you or you can manually check for it by going into Settings > Software update > Download updates manually.
