At the time that those tablets were released they were to have two major OS updates which they received.  It's no different than any other Android product.  If you buy a new Samsung device now, the support agreement can be up to 4 major releases depending on device.

Firstly,

Thank you for your response. Secondly, why not give the new software update to the more powerful device with more RAM, CPU Power, & Better Screen?

Prior to a couple of years ago, the agreement between Google and Qualcomm was 2 years of support and of course, there is a negotiated cost for that. 

Then a couple of years ago we read the press release that Google and Qualcomm had come to an agreement for 4 years of update and the chatter was whether or not Samsung would sign on to that.  Of course they did and that's where we are today.

@Cmon1 The name does make it confusing. But the year that device was introduced and, when Samsung made the decision to support for more updates, dictates if it will receive 5.1.

  • Tab S6 4G was introduced in August 2019
  • Tab S6 5G was introduced in January 2020 
  • Tab S6 Lite 4G was introduced in May 2020
  • Tab S6 Lite 5G was introduced in May 2022

Anybody else experiencing this? I had all my photos in different albums, work, family, dogs, etc.. but i opened up my gallery today and noticed some albums missing, and a new album called "Recent" with over 6k photos.

Upon further inspection, i noticed that the albuma that were not deleted are missing hundreds of photos. Everything was backed up to the SD card, but now only a few albums are.

I don't think any photos were deleted, at least none that I've noticed, but a few albums have been, and all time I've spent organizing https://omegle.onl/ these folders has been wasted. Guess i gotta start over

Please tell me I'm not the only one.
