Wait for the Best Software Support
If you want the best software support from Samsung in 2019-2020, think about waiting for the Galaxy Note 10.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will probably run Android Pie out of the box, but it will almost certainly be one of the first Galaxy devices to move from Pie to Android Q.
Google's Android Q update is currently in beta ahead of a release in the third quarter of this year.
Speaking of the beta, Samsung isn't taking part, but you can expect the company to roll out its own version of the Android Q beta later this year. The Note 10 will likely participate.
While you might be tempted to go with an older, cheaper model like the Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy Note 8, or Galaxy S9, software support for these devices will end much sooner than it does for the Note 10.
Samsung typically pulls the plug on major Android software updates after two years. On top of that, older models often get a dumbed down version of new software due to hardware limitations.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10's powerful hardware will ensure that you get the best version of Android Q and the best version of future software updates.
Samsung's version of Android Q is expected to bring the company's One UI 2.0 which will undoubtedly be chock full of enhancements.
If you plan on keeping your next phone for several years and you want the latest features without rooting, think about waiting for the Note 10.
