Samsung considers unlocked users to be lower life forms. Your logic is as sound as the logic three years ago when I first purchased an unlocked galaxy s7. The unlocked community are second class citizens to Samsung. If it comes out before the end of the first quarter of 2020 I will be shocked.
Yeah, wonder why unlocked users aren't seen as high priority. You can still purchase unlocked devices directly fro the samsung site, so it doesn't necessarily mean it's brought from a third party instead of Samsung.
