    Apparently not, since Android 10 has many advance features, like having up to 5 cBluetooth devices connected.

    So you either wasted the $200 on your current Tab A8, or you wull nee to go buy a new one, and spend days setting it up to be like the old one.

    Which generation/release year are you referring to? That's the problem with the tablet naming -- it's can be hard to know which generation.

    According to this Wikipedia article, the 2018 and 2019 models are upgradeable to Android 10, while the 2017 model is stuck on Android 9 Pie, and the 2015 model on Android 5 Lollipop.

    And if this is a carrier-specific LTE-enabled model, system updates can also be up to the carrier, so sometimes the carrier-specific models don't even get the updates.

    Maybe we ought to start looking for a replacement Android tablet in the 7 or 8 inch size.
    The problem with that is most retailers only have Apple products or smartphones, and try to pass them off as "tablets."

    Mine is an SM-T380.

    The 2020 version is supposed to have a screen of 8.4 inches, unless you prefer the Galaxy tab S7.

    I'm running the ATT Tab A 8.4 (2020) and it's on Android 10.

    The SM-T380 is the 2017 model (Wi-Fi only) which is upgradable up to Android 9 Pie.
