OnePlus explains why there will be no Project Treble on OnePlus 5 and 5T


In the list of smartphones that, while receiving the update to Android 8.0 Oreo will not be able to enjoy the support to Project Treble, we also find OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T the two top of the range presented this year by the Chinese company.

How is already happened for Nokia smartphones also OnePlus recalls that to implement support to Google Project Treble a different partition scheme is required than the one used with Android Nougat. In particular, we need a partition dedicated to the vendor and one to the Android framework.

OnePlus has already carried out some tests to verify if it is possible to modify the partitioning scheme via OTA, but there is a high risk of brick of the device during the operation. The producer, however, reminds us that this will not be negatively reflected on users, who will receive timely new versions of Android.

It should be noted that the Chinese manufacturer was among the first to release the update to Android 8.0 Oreo for its smartphones, although with some difficulty, so we are confident that even with the upcoming release of Android OnePlus will be in the front row to quickly update OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T in addition to the two smartphones of last year, which in all probability they will also receive Android P.
