What is your model and bootloader version?

Hi.. I dont have the phone yet. I'm planning to buy one soon so I want to be prepared and making sure I make the right choice in purchasing. The snapdragon version is the better option to the exynos from what I've read because of better battery and performance. I live in USA so I assume the snapdragon version is the best choice regionally and battery wise. Let me know what you think.

Good choice, but if you want to unlock bootloader should be on v1 bootloader.

And its paid service.

    Team Win Recovery Project 3.x, or twrp3 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

    Code:
     * Your warranty is now void.
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or your getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    Supported Models:
    Galaxy Note 20 Ultra N9860, N986N, N986U, N986U1 and N986W.

    US/Canada bootloader unlock thread:
    here

    Download & Guide:
    1. Unlock your bootloader.
    2. Download Note 20 Ultra: c2q.
    3. Reboot to download mode and flash vbmeta_disabled.tar in AP slot and reboot. Device will reboot to stock recovery mode prompting you to wipe data so wipe data and reboot to download mode again.
    4. Put the TWRP tar for your device with Odin in the AP slot and click start.
    5. Reboot to recovery via recovery key combo.
    6. Disable encryption:
    Or:
    - Go to Advanced > Terminal, type: multidisabler.​
    If vendor complain about free space left on device, will attempt to resize vendor. and it ask to - Run multidisabler again!.​
    - Type: multidisabler again. will see - Finished. when done.​
    7. Go back to Wipe > Format Data > type yes.
    8. Reboot to recovery.
    9. Flash magisk apk in twrp.
    10. Reboot to system, Enjoy.

    Note:
    To disable encryption manually:
    You need to replace fileencryption=ice with encryptable=ice only in userdata line (maybe rest lines) in vendor/etc/fstab.qcom
    To avoid stock recovery restoration manually:
    Rename system/recovery-from-boot.p to recovery-from-boot.p.bak

    Support:
    Live support is available via #twrp on Freenode with your IRC client or just click this link.

    Sorry I'm a bit out of date but what am I missing? I'm unlocked, US version, I shouldn't update to 3.1?
    No dont, otherwise your unlocked will be bypassed until you back to oneui 3.0

    How do I unlock bootloader on sm-n986w? OEM unlock is not in the dev option list
    US/Canada devices has no oem option. Can be unlocked via some services. I cant discuss here in xda because I didn't got approved yet to post. You can try to contact out of xda.

    Stuck on ...
    7. Disable encryption!, flash multidisabler-samsung-3.x.zip and format data in twrp and type yes.

    Is disabling encryption and installing the multidisabler the same, or is that two steps? Any elaboration would be helpful.
    Yes same thing.
