What is the latest version of Android that this device should be on?

@rcadden  Our Tab A 10.5 is still on T597PVPS1ASD1 (April 1, 2019 Security Patch) !!

 

Don't count on getting a good response from Sprint regarding any updates to devices - you won't get one. Android Pie has been released for our tablets - and Sprints release to the consumer was suppose to be slated for end of Q2 2019 - that never happened, as it hasn't for other devices on Sprint that were marked for AP on Q2 2019.

 

They're EXTREMELY slow 😞

rcadden, sorry about the delay in response.  We let Em_Will_I_Am have time off.  Won't make that mistake again 😉

 

ASD1 is the most current version of the software. 

 

Each software update goes through extensive testing before it's pushed to consumers.  Sometimes that can mean an update is sent back for more work when we find a problem or that there's a delay while we optimize on our end.

 

It doesn't make waiting any easier, but it does ensure a better experience for you once the update is finally released.

LOL, you may want to holla at Samsung about that.  Sprint does not control the software release schedule.  For tablets, it appears they drop software roughly every 3 months.  The Tab A launches were:

 

11/09/2018

02/04/2019

05/03/2019

08/05/2019
