In the category of “almost good” news for Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 users, the Android Pie update seems to be edging closer and closer.

According to SamMobile, the update to Android Pie has been released in a number of markets overseas, but sadly Australia isn’t amongst them.

If you’re in Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Israel, Kazakhstan, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Switzerland, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, then the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Android Pie update will shortly be with you. Some regions have already received the update, and LTE versions have been updated in some regions too.

While there’s no inkling of when this update will come to Australia yet, we’ve contacted Samsung this morning to ask for an update for you. I’ve been using the LTE version of this tablet for some time now, and I’m still using it heavily. Knowing that Android Pie is out there for other users – but not us here – is very disappointing.

This continued tardiness from Samsung with updates not just on the Tab S4 but also with the Galaxy S10+ & Note 9 prompted me yesterday to return the Tab A 10″ 2018 LTE to Officeworks on the last day of their 14 day return policy. The Tab A was also stuck on Android 8.1 but with June 2018 security patch and had even less likelihood of an update in the near future than the Tab S4. I’m a big Samsung fan but Samsung’s treatment of Aussie consumers when it comes to updates is pitiful so the S10+ has probably been… Read more »

Very disappointing indeed, Samsung. The way they treat customers in Australia when it comes to updates is very poor behaviour and why some users switch to Pixel and other brands known for fast updates.
