  • That's great news, but how do you know it's coming tomorrow?
  • TOMORROW! That's so exciting!
  • I can't wait for this!
  • Hope in India also...Have Note 10 +
  • You know how this works...when you read the word "tomorrow" on a site about android, that means "sometime in the next month, or whenever your carrier decides to allow the update to be released"
  • If you buy a carrier phoneand don't get updates you've got no one to blame but yourself.
  • Unlocked Samsung phones update last.
  • I buy Samsung unlocked, but for some reason they give it the update after the last company releases their update. It's the opposite of how it should be...
  • all these years of buying locked phones and i finally buy an unlocked Note 10+ from the MS store and I start getting the updates after all the Carriers have picked through the bins so to speak.
  • Or just buy unlocked direct from Samsung and get updates AFTER the major carriers. That's been my experience with the Note 10+
  • I bought my Note 10+ from the Microsoft store in the States. I have had the same experience. I even tried the Samsung Smart Switch Software and here is what I get: Your device software is up to date: TB3
  • I wonder if there's a reason I should care... Outside of the security patch.
  • Did a bug crawl up and take a big bite? Did a cat poop in your Wheaties? All the time?
  • I got mine a few days back on April 4th Using a Note 10+....On Verizon.
  • sorry, i didn't realize that article is about the One UI 2.1 my Unlocked Note 10+ is NOW getting the One Ui 2.5. I am on AT&T.
