because it just got released a few months ago and dsnt have the kind of traction the s8 series has because its been out for months now and also because there are alot more s8 series phones than n8 so theyd get more data with s8 then note 8
but dont worry youll get it right after its done

Well it wouldn't be right ro say that just because it doesnt have as similar demand as s8/+, it won't receive early updates!

The reason is Note8, with its users, is altogether a different category in itself and it is wrong to compare Note Device to any other smartphone out there. The development of a Samsung Android OS/ROM starts from S8 then it is tested and after an intial stabilisation is reached it is sent to Note development team which adds more features to it seperately because Note device combined with S pen has a different hardware so to optimise it accordingly.
Another copy of stabilised s8 ROM is now ditrubuted hierarchically for others devices' ROM development where some flagship and unsuitable/unstable features are removed! The links to the removed section is closed and then it is optimised for that device.
After succeasful tests, certifications are acquired and then the update is rolled out!
This is the reason why beta tests and development of firmware starts from S device instead of Note.

Thanks for being with Samsung and for sharing your feedback. Sir, Samsung offers you the best value on the product released. Updates are rolling out by time to time for the devices, However it totally depends on the availability and compatibility of the update with the devices.
