Samsung can't exactly compete with Chinese manufacturers as far as making phones with amazing specs and low price tags is concerned and it has certainly become a problem for the Korean giant, as it saw its market share in China plummet below 1 percent. Samsung has said that it is looking at ways to get back into the game in the Chinese market, and it looks like one area where it could get the leg up on Chinese OEMs would be software updates, as the company is only now releasing the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in the country.
Galaxy S8 Oreo update released in China
Yes, it's not like other markets received the Galaxy S8 Oreo update very quickly, but Chinese customers seem to have had a longer wait to get the latest version of Android on their Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+. And while Chinese OEMs aren't keen on bringing major Android upgrades to their devices, they do release regular software updates with new features and bug fixes, so Samsung will have to be quicker at updating its devices in the world's most populous country as it goes forward with whatever plans it has in place to reclaim some of the lost market share.
Well, here's hoping the Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update for Chinese customers isn't far behind.
