They are the first Samsung Galaxy devices to get One UI 3.1.

Samsung has started rolling out the Android 11 update to the Galaxy Tab S7 series.

The update, which is now rolling out to users in the country, bears the version number M315FXXU2BUAC and brings the January security patches in tow, according to a report by SamMobile.

The update is now rolling out for users in South Korea. Powered by the same in-house Exynos 9810 SoC as the Galaxy S9, S9+, and Note 9, this thing aims to strike the best possible balance between performance and affordability, thus making a series of very important compromises when compared to the likes of the "mainstream" Tab S7.

Typically, Samsung provides timelines for major updates through the Members app, so if you'd like to know when it's going to arrive in your country, you might want to check that out.

Like on the predecessor Tab Active2, the Galaxy Tab Active3 also includes other key features such as a replaceable battery and military-grade ruggedness-with protection against conditions such as extreme temperature, dust, vibration, high altitude and submersion in water as deep as five feet.

Naturally, the entry-level Galaxy Tab Active3 version merely comes with Wi-Fi support, while a $589.99 model adds 4G LTE speeds to the connectivity equation.

Now that Samsung is nearly done seeding Android 11 to its flagship smartphones, the company had turned the focus on its flagship Android tablets.

When talking about software updates, Samsung will be busy for most of the year to bring One UI 3.0 to a rather long list of handsets.

The list of features does not hide any surprises, since Android 11 and One UI 3.0 have been around for a while now. Samsung has also made UI changes to streamline the menus, allowing for a more seamless navigation experience.

At the end of previous year, Samsung's Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Tab S7 received AER certification following their Android 11 updates. The company will likely expand the rollout to other regions in the coming weeks.
