    I'll admit it, I fell for Samsung's promise of patches and updates on their devices. https://news.samsung.com/us/samsung-...-updates-knox/ I went out, got a Tab S7. Powered it up, seems nice, checked for updates... Nothing since Jan1. A friend of mine has an S21 phone which is on the Feb 1 patch.

    Tried talking to Samsung support, they refuse to answer on when or if devices will ever be patched, on what schedule, etc.

    Anyone know what the patch cycle is for the Tab S7's? Is it already quarterly with such a new device or has Samsung just dropped the ball and not patched for Feb when they should have?

    Trying to be open minded and give them a fair shot but leaving the OS vulnerable and not patching when they promised is why I stopped buying from Samsung in the first place.

    For anyone wondering, tablets are only patched quarterly, meaning for 2+ months critical vulnerabilities are left open for attack. https://security.samsungmobile.com/workScope.smsb

    Yup, this is why I wasn't looking for it on mine.

    If you haven't gotten Android 11 yet, see my thread about it in this forum section, some of us have gotten it already...

    hallux, I got 11 3.1 but this new update will improve the sound and the use of the s pen. The two main things I cherish and remembering the days with my old note pro 12.2. My peeps are Mac slab fans but they like the s7+ in the way I use mine.

    I just manually flashed to March security patch on my SM-T970 S7+ Wifi only US version the update is available on SM below link
    You need to use the Patched Odin v3.14.1 located below link then you can flash any region the firmware's are all multi regional meaning if you flash the Korean version on a US device it will show up as normal US version
