Android is among the most-used software operating systems in the market at the moment. There are millions of Android users who wait for the arrival of even the smallest type of update. Companies other than Google find it difficult to release upgrades as soon as it is made available for official use. In order to speed up this procedure, Google launched Project Treble earlier this year. The main objective of this initiative is to fix the slow Android adoption among other Android-based smartphone manufacturers.

Everything you should know

As reported by Gadgets 360, Google had stated that Project Treble will only be available on devices that ship with Android O.

Google has yet to announce the Android O update to the market. The software system is expected to hit PIXEL and Nexus smartphones first, followed by the others. In that sense, only Google-branded smartphones would be able to function on Project Treble, which pretty much defeats its purpose.

Company is working with other OEMs

In the latest episode of "Android Developers Backstage" podcast, Google engineers Romain Guy, Chet Haase and Illiyan Malchev, while discussing details of Project Treble, confirmed that the company is working with other OEMs in order to bring it to their devices as soon as possible. They further went on to talk about the impact that Project Treble might have on the upcoming Android O.

Through this episode, it was also confirmed that Google’s Pixel devices will be receiving the Treble support primarily due to the fact that they are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. Other OEMs’ products that are powered by the same processor could also ideally receive the Project Treble support. The Gadgets 360 report states that LG and Samsung might be in talks with Google regarding this matter.

The wait is almost over

Before Project Treble was brought to reality, most of the smartphone manufacturers would have to wait a really long time in order to release Android updates to their products. They would have to go through a rigorous process, waiting for chipmakers to modify the latest release according to the hardware installed in the products, and only then would they be able to provide consumers with the latest update. It really is a tedious task, especially for non-Google brands that have other important launches to look forward to. Stay tuned for more technology news, rumors, and updates.
