I have a Galaxy tab s8 WiFi and as always the s8+ and s8 ultra received the 5.1 update with Feb patch yesterday, however my model hasn't, this happens every time there is a security or OS update the model I have is treated as a second class device and updates come weeks later, not fair when you spend upwards of £600 on a so called premium device, that's treated as a second class one to others in the S series.

It should become available as the tab s7 had 5.1 update release and that is usually after the S8 series does.

@NaughtyButNice69  According to this article one Ui 5.1 for the Tab S8 has started rolling out in some European countries, the wait should not be too long, updates come in batches though. https://www.sammobile.com/news/galaxy-tab-s8-one-ui-5-1-update-released-new-features/ 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
