Is this a Spark source handset or a parallel imported or 2D handset being used on Spark network ?

I bought the Note 8 in Noel Leeming, they gave me 2D one, saying it works with Spark, so I just used my sim Spark card from Note 3 and it worked.

Face recognition now available although it cannot be used in conjunction with iris scanner.
Can't say I've noticed any performance increase within the ui, perhaps due to having animation duration etc switched off.
Still as blazing fast as the day it was born.
It's android 8.0.0 and Samsung experience 9.0 on 2degrees note8.

@XinfinityoO updates are not related to the SIM in the handset

Updated my Note 8 - also 2Degrees handset, mate of mine here at work has a Spark version it did not see the update. Looks like other Telco's are dragging their feet. Security Patch is March 1st 2018.

@DeepBlueSky Could well be approved by the Telco's but Samsung Korea has not pushed it out yet

I am in no big rush for 8 on my Note. It is working great on 7.1.1 and I don't want to introduce issues.
