One UI/Pie Release: UK & Ireland

First Poster

Hi so i have a copper brown note 9, dual sim and its unlocked i live in the UK and use EE as my network, just want to know if the process will still be the same as the UK models? 

 

I have been reading and trying to find out a exact date and to me it seems as though the date is the 15th of Feb, so disappointed as i was expecting it this month.

It should still be this month people are saying this weeend. Its really poor from Samsung that they can't release for everyone at same time like iOS, this is why people get iphone as people want the new updates quick

@Gazza40 While all of us await the update. I find it strange that people would buy an iPhone just because they push updates regularly. I mean the note still works great as is. Honestly software updates are not even a consideration for most average users I know when deciding to buy a phone. Especially iPhone users who typically just buy an iPhone because its an iphone.

What I really don't get and please do not take it out of context, how can a third world country test and release an upgrade quicker than in the UK, speaking as someone of afro carribean decent.

Surely you would resolve your major markets first.

Maybe they use smaller markets as a test bed then iron out the problems before the release in larger markets

Its poor how they can't release to all. IOS is streets ahead on that front and considering pie was out last year and the new up date is out soon Samsung need to step up

@Erniem64 Its probably because markets like India for example have a larger user base to provide them with feedback. Also Asia and other developing markets are a battleground when it comes to brands striving to achieve a higher market share due to stiff competition from lesser known brands. So maybe these markets are more strategically important vs the UK or US for example where most are brand loyal but more quality conscious and likely to buy an iphone or samsung anyway. So it makes sense for samsung to let people continue using a stable build of oreo in these markets rather than  anger people with a rushed update. You've got to remember the average majority dont even care about things like software updates, but are likely to notice if their premium device malfunctions,  its just us few enthusiasts who really sit waiting for these updates.
