    Well yeah, that's my point. If this is for non beta users, we must be getting close for a release.

    Unofficial rumour has always been middle of the month. I have usually had my updates around the 17th, so here is hoping.

    Here we go again, everyone can't wait for the software update, and then the posts "the update broke my phone" start up within 2 days. Nobody ever learns to leave good enough alone.

    You're right. The glass is always half empty.

    Never had an update do any damage either.

    Will probably give my phone its first and last factory reset after updating. Will be about half way through its life with me, so a good time.

    See that's the mentality, mine never acted up after a update so it doesn't happen. Just go back to every update on previous phones, just before update phones were great, after update complaints start coming in. We just get blinded with it's new it has to be better thinking.

    Rare but it happens. I had an LG phone that totally bricked over an android update 4 years ago

    Read in the news today that it's been pushed back to February. Guess they've decided not to launch it before the S10 pre-orders have been placed after all. :-/

    I had an old iPhone years ago that the OS update bricked it. When I asked apple to roll it back they refused. So I asked then what recourse I had. They said to get a new phone. So I did. Switched to android and never looked back.

    that is the final build for unlocked versions I guess. not sure what the official build will be for locked versions. if it is the latest that I have found on firmware science then it isn't stable enough.

    For locked devices, each provider has to approve. That can be very fast or very slow.

    So far, only the UAE Note9s have received the update. Other than that it was only pushed to beta users.

    It's highly unlikely that the update will be pushed to the general population before the S10 pre-orders have been registered. They're not going to push Android 9 and the exact same UI the new phones will have before actually selling the new phones. That would be nuts - nobody would want to update if you can have last year's phone with the same experience.

    I think they planned for pie to be out a month before S10. Not to hold it back for that. Some ligic hiccups emerged? Getting it out to more people would mean more testing.

    Beta testing helps but it isn't 💯

    Stable is just a mile marker.

    Installed the official UAE release to my UK unlocked. All worked a charm.
    More 960F OXM counties now getting it ota today it seems.

    Loving it so far. Lots of little design changes. System wide dark mode is great.
    Camera Redesign is fresh.
    All good so far.
