Still no more updates so far for the U.K. models mentioned in the previous post.

 

Samsung have now released the vast majority of this update to their stock, non carrier branded, models worldwide.

 

Carrier branded devices can take longer to modify and to receive approval and certification from individual carriers before release. This is the reason that carrier branded phones were not included in the Beta Test releases.
