There are quite a few versions of the 8823 it seems.

VDSL and ADSL Compliance
VMG8823-B10B/B30B: Support VDSL profiles: 8a/b/c/d, 12a/b and 17a
VMG8823-B50B/B60B: Support VDSL profiles: 8a/b/c/d, 12a/b, 17a and 35b

DSL
VMG8823-B10B/B50B: One RJ-11 port for VDSL (over POTS)
VMG8823-B30B/B60B: One RJ-45 port for VDSL (over ISDN)

So either a VMG8823-B10B or B50B would work in the UK. No idea if they have different chipsets. One would assume so with them supporting different profiles.

The website and pfd files also state:
WAN
VMG8823-B50B: One RJ-11 port for VDSL (over POTS)
VMG8823-B60B: One RJ-45 port for VDSL (over ISDN)

Which according to the supplied images is incorrect. On all 4 models the WAN port is an RJ45 port. Only the DSL port varies between models.

Having downloaded and taken a peek at the firmware file it mentions Broadcom also mention of BCM96318 and BCM63138. So looks like it is Broadcom.

It's been more than a year and Zyxel has not produced any new firmware. For the 8924 Zyxel was pretty good all these years. The 8823's firmware is by far inferior compare to the 8924

Not really new, I believe it was launched 3 years ago...

The VMG8825-B50B would be a better choice https://www.zyxel.com/uk/en/products_services/Multy-Pro-AC2400-VDSL2-Combo-WAN-Gigabit-IAD-VMG8825-B-Series/

Not sure if it's for ISPs only and there are people in Italy who managed to unlock it: https://www.hwupgrade.it/forum/showthread.php?t=2871045
