Too early to tell. Will update later with my finding. Provisional testing shows the U1 has less of a green bias on dark grey areas but more of a yellow bias.

Still November patch for N9860! Not android 11....N986U, N986N, N986B etc. all have OneUI 3.0. What's wrong with N9860, Samsung?! What a shame! I paid over 1300 USD on this phone to get update long time after the old models like S10, S20, Note 10?
 
Now we have second update android 11,january patch, all HK version no only N9860 have very slow update
While I'm as disappointed as the next person, perhaps the numbers involved do not make the N9860 a priority. Based on population statistics Hong Kong has fewer residents than London and roughly 10% of the UK as a whole. How many of those own an N9860?

Compare to the USA market or Exynos market and it is quite a niche product. I guess it's no surprise that it's at the back of the queue. It's shameful that we don't have December security updates though, never mind January. Not at all cool, Samsung.

I'm afraid that we will not get the update as long as we are not in HK, I've read an article about this, the only way is manual update ! !

    This is what Samsung HK responded to my query about the update
    (In regards to your inquiry, we are sorry that we do not have accurate date of the update you mentioned, we will pass your opinion to our relevant party, and hope that there will be an update for your device as soon as possible)

    This is really frustrating

    Hello everyone! I made a tutorial for updating to stable One UI 3.0:






    1. Download and extract both Frija and Odin.
    2. Launch Frija.
    3. Check the "Auto" button. Write your device's Model Number and CSC
    (Your model number is at Settings, then About phone).
    4. Click on "Check Update".
    5. Click on "Download" and choose a folder to save the firmware.
    6. After the download is complete, extract the firmware .zip.
    7. Launch Odin.
    8. Click the "BL" button and select the file that starts with "BL_...".
    9. Click the "AP" button and select the file that starts with "AP_...".
    10. Click the "CP" button and select the file that starts with "CP_...".
    11. Click the "CSC" button and select the file that starts with "HOME_CSC_..." (Selecting CSC_... will wipe your data!).
    12. Turn off your phone.
    13. Boot into Download Mode by holding both Volume Up + Volume Down buttons and then connecting it to your PC.
    14. After booting into Download Mode, press the Volume Up button to continue.
    15. Back to Odin, click "Start".
    16. The flashing process will be over when "PASS" is shown in Odin and your phone reboots. You may close Odin and disconnect the phone from your PC then.
    17. Congrats! You have successfully flashed the latest update to your device.
    18. After your phone is on, turn it off again.
    19. Boot into Recovery Mode by connecting to your PC and holding Volume Up + Power Button (+ Bixby Button).
    20. Navigating with the Volume Buttons and selecting with the Power Button, go to "Wipe cache partition".
    21. Select "Yes".
    22. Select "Reboot system now".
