Launched back in 2017 with Android 8.0 Oreo OS, all the Android smartphones coming with the latest Android 9.0 Pie will also come with Project Treble.
Google, via a blog post said, “Going forward, all devices launching with Android 9 Pie or later will be Treble-compliant and take full advantage of the Treble architecture to deliver faster upgrades.”
For your information, Project Treble simplifies the whole process of software updates on various Android smartphones. It calls for faster and easier dissemination of Android updates as compared to the earlier not-so-quick process.
Google, at its 2018 Dev Summit, showcased the benefits of Project Treble by showing the Generic System Image (GSI) running on different devices by different OEMs. Additionally, the GSI is built from the latest available AOSP source code, including the latest bug fixes contributed by OEMs.
Mandation of Project Treble is expected to result in more Android smartphones getting Android 9.0 Pie by the end of 2018 as compared to the reception of Android 8.0 Oreo at the end of 2017.
Furthermore, Google promises to make GSI more accessible and useful to the various app developers.
