I'm in UK, Is the fact that my note 8 dual sim no brand is imported from China related with the the absence of updates and still with the security patches of august 2017?

We will also see Oreo around April 13. Even if Samsung launched the Note 8 on "very old" Nougat, it will still see OS updates until at least Android P. Same for the S8.
And even if the Note 8 launched on Nougat, tell me one major feature it missed out on from Oreo.
I'm also not sure what you mean by staggered updates, as Samsung updates all its phones during this time.
DarkJava, 05 Apr 2018Samsung gives 2 OS updates just like every other manufacturer other than Google or Apple.You're talking to a Galaxy S7 owner here.
;) Samsung will deliberately stagger the update to the disadvantage of older devices.
They will deliberately put 'very' old OS on originally launched device. Then when they launch a new device, which have very old OS again ... then maybe 8 months later they will give the previous device one update. From there on, the old device will be neglected. This is the cycle for Samsung flagship devices.

Anonymous, 04 Apr 2018stay away from this company Why's that so? Can explain to us briefly and what was your experience?
GoToSchool, 03 Apr 2018Shouldn't unlocked phones get updates faster than locked phone? I don't understand these compa... moreThat's how logic works. Economics however says that whoever sighs a bigger distribution contract with you gets it first. So its carriers vs unorganized individuals. Guess who wins

I have stopped notifying them for this reason.
By the way I have received Oreo on my N950U on Monday, however, mine is T-Mobile variant bought from Samsung.com.
I send in this at 7.35 am today morning. But the team over at GSMarena has always been "super " slow always. This is not the first time.
