      I’d need the full model number to research what newer version might be out there.

      Make a new reply with the full model number so we can find out what is available. As to the latest Android my answer would be no.

      I seriously doubt that you can update it to a current version of Android as the original product was released in 2015 and was running Android 4.4. You can read more about it here: https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_tab_e_9_6-7295.php

      I am using a Samsung Tab S7+ and I have the latest version of Android, but I imagine I might get 1 more Android update but not certain.

      The tablet you have might be able to be updated manually, but there are no guarantees that it would be compatible due to the current specifications/hardware. You would be better off getting a newer tablet instead. I think that my current tablet that was released in 2020 is being sold for about $400 and is still a recommended tablet on some review sites, even though it is about 3 years old.

      I understand that you have an older Samsung Galaxy Tab E and you’re wondering if it’s possible to update it to a newer version of Android. The Galaxy Tab E was originally released with Android 4.4 KitKat, and Samsung has not officially provided updates beyond Android 7.1.1 Nougat for this device.

      However, there is a potential solution you can explore. Some tech-savvy users in the Android community have developed custom ROMs, which are unofficial firmware versions based on newer Android releases. These custom ROMs allow you to install a newer version of Android on your device, but it’s important to note that this process requires technical knowledge and may void your warranty. Keep in mind that not all devices have custom ROMs available, and compatibility can vary.

      If you’re interested in exploring custom ROMs, I recommend doing thorough research and finding a reliable source that provides instructions specific to your tablet model. It’s also essential to proceed with caution and make sure you have a backup of your data before attempting any modifications.

      If you’re not comfortable with custom ROMs or if they’re not available for your tablet, it’s best to stick with the officially supported Android version provided by Samsung. Although you may not have access to the latest Android features, you can still use your tablet for various tasks and applications.
