Samsung doesn’t appear very keen on releasing new Android tablets anymore, following a global trend that favors 2-in-1 Windows convertibles all of a sudden. High-end Galaxy Tabs in particular aren’t going anywhere, while a few mid-rangers remain relatively popular on US carriers like Verizon and AT&T thanks primarily to their super-low prices.

What’s perhaps even more surprising to see is the 8-inch Galaxy Tab E’s manufacturer committed to delivering timely software updates, at least on Big Red. Granted, with Android Nougat just unveiled and literally right around the corner, a Marshmallow rollout these days hardly feels “timely.”

But it’s never too late to refresh the OS of a $250 slate powered by a Snapdragon 410 processor, 1.5GB RAM, and sporting a mediocre 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution screen. Let’s be honest, it wouldn’t have been such a shock to see the Galaxy Tab E 8.0 breathe its last on the same Android build it launched on – 5.1 Lollipop.

Then again, Samsung has been sending over-the-air 6.0 goodies left and right, to new and old, high and low-end smartphones and tablets, with VZW getting in on the act as far as the S5, Note 4 and Note Edge were concerned just in the past month.
