OnePlus delivered the Android Oreo 8.0 for its OnePlus 3/3T owners, and now in a Q&A section on its forums the company shed some light on its plans, and there’s good news as well as some sad news, but it won’t be sad if the company keeps delivering updates at such a fast pace.
Now, the good news is that the One Plus 3/3T and its current flagships OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T will get the latest Android Oreo 8.1 software update, so this is a nice confirmation from the company’s side, but it comes with a minor flaw, which isn’t a major deal. So, you’ll get Android Oreo 8.1, but One Plus will skip on the Project Treble integration that comes with Android Oreo 8.1.
The Project Trebel is a new major development from Google to step up OEMs Android Update cycle game for their respective Android devices. This new framework will allow Android OEMs to update their devices without spending many resources and helping them to reduce costs as much as possible. Furthermore, the OEMs won’t need to know much about the silicon they’re using under the hood. And updating of components won’t require them to contact those chip makers anymore.
Moreover, the company has been on time with Android Oreo update, so its a matter of fact, even if it doesn’t implement this system in its production line, it won’t affect much. And we haven’t seen any project treble in action or the system isn’t proven yet, so there’s that.
Apart from that, OnePlus also responded about when OnePlus 3/3T will see an end of its update cycle, and One Plus responded by saying whenever they feel, the device has had enough, it was a short and sweet answer, and with the internals it has, we think its a long way to go.
