The Notes are scheduled directly after the "S" series. Hope that Helps. Looking at mid to late December for the S series. Then Note in late December early Jan. (depending on the carrier) <~ They gotta make sure all their bloatware plays well with the new UI before pushing it out to you. Then after that will start the "A" series. Doubt there will be any Betas for the A series as they are just watered down versions of the S. So they just have to take out lines of features code since the base is S series and already proven Stable. Hope that Helps
Sure thing. Should be some overall nice stability improvements for yalls devices. 1 step verification is a definite improvement. it's there but gonna be alot more stable. better 4k integration. not much on the looks and appearance other than some controls and dials being moved around. Most of the big improvements will only be enjoyed by the ones who dive into the devs areas. Overall a Solid UI for upcoming development of other products looking to make a splash like Googles RCS, and many streaming services/Home control units, and device connectivity. As Google merges its automated services into more of the Samsung devices, you'll see alot more Development in the first quarter of next year. Theyll be pushing out to the TVs via Firmware Patch this month so that opens up alot of Great Development in the OpenSource for some exciting stuff next year in all areas.
