OnePlus devices won’t support Android Oreo’s quick OS updates feature

By : |November 23, 2017 0

While OnePlus 3 and 3T have started getting Android Oreo updates, One Plus 5 and 5T are due for updates early next year but despite that none of them will not support Project Treble, OnePlus confirmed in its forums yesterday.

Google’s Project Treble makes it easier for Android owners to upgrade their devices to the current version of the mobile operating system without having to wait on their chip partner to support it. It was announced to address Android fragmentation, so that manufacturers can quickly push out the latest update on their devices without having to wait for hardware partners to rework their drivers.

Iliyan Malchev, Project Treble’s team lead, called it the “biggest change to the low-level system architecture of Android to date” in a blog post earlier this year. Yet that won’t be the case if you own a OnePlus device.


Notably, only devices that ship with Android Oreo installed out of the box will be required to feature Project Treble, and, disappointingly, OnePlus’ most recent phone, the 5T, ships with Android Nougat.

Meanwhile, OnePlus 3 and 3T have started receiving the Oreo update, which the company says will be the last software update for these two. But, it is quite disappointing that OnePlus will not be a part of Google’s attempt to bring faster updates for a more uniform Android ecosystem.
