    It's not likely, Android isn't an Apple product where there is so little advancement in the architecture that it can still be updated to the latest release 5 years on.

    Yes it will. Samsung updates its flagship phones for two major OS updates. So the Note 8 released with Android 7, is currently on Android 8, and will get Android 9 as it's last OS update.

    Yeah, it's sort of expected that ALL Android flagships get at least 2 OS updates. Samsung's been doing 2 OS updates per flagship since the Note 2 at least.

    I've had a notification from ACR app devs telling me that Google are removing the call recording api and associated apps will no longer work. Which is a stinky poo for me living in the UK.

    EDIT: No longer work from 9 onward.
