Finally, also the Galaxy Tab S4, the most powerful tablet from Samsung stable receives the latest distribution of the Android 9 Pie operating system that brings many new features including the new One UI graphics as well as all the features of the latest version of Android designed by Google.

The update weighs a lot, has codename: T835XXU2BSD1 and also brings with it the ability to use the Android Pie features on the Samsung tablet.

It also arrives through the French Android 9 Pie firmware but that works perfectly on any local device for the Galaxy Tab S4 with model code SM-T835 so only in the Wifi + LTE version.

Let me remind you that manual updating of an original and official firmware does not void the warranty. The operation is simple and will allow you to remove all operator customizations and have a Galaxy Tab S4 in effect updated to the latest firmware available. Although distributed in France, it has the English and Italian languages and works perfectly with all SIMs.

You will need to flash the official Samsung original ROM via ODIN with the procedure now known to flash all Samsung official firmware and will not void the warranty.
