so Samsung releases November patch in other countries, just read the info below:
even working with the carriers in other countries they are faster than with the unlocked Note 8 in the UAE?
215 vulnerabilities in Android, including CRACK WiFi exploit are fixed.
I wrote to Samsung and the answer was operating environments are different and they won't update Gulf Note 8.
Is it discrimination? What kind of service is it?

I think of 2 options - the Note line is dead. s8 plus is the same , so s9 plus may be compatible with s pen to be sold as an accessory. then there well could be no note 9. they perhaps released the Note 8 only not to halt the line on the bad accord with the exploding Note 7. and now they are planning to retire it. makes sense. the second explanation Samsung Gulf does not do their job
