OnePlus 5T available worldwide; find out price, specs and features

OnePlus Won’t be Compatible with OS Updates Feature of Android Oreo OnePlus Won’t be Compatible with OS Updates Feature of Android Oreo

Published the results of speed testing of two advanced smartphones released this year - iPhone X and OnePlus 5T.

While it's true the OnePlus 5T falls short in a few areas, namely the display screen resolution, wireless charging and waterproofing, the lack of Android Oreo out of the box is the worst mistake OnePlus did and it's doing nothing at all to make amends.

During the OnePlus forums AMA, the company also confirmed that the OnePlus 5 and 5T will share the same software update cycle of the OnePlus 3 and 3T, and all of those devices will be upgraded to Android 8.1 Oreo. "Treble is for all new devices launching with Android 8.0 and beyond (the new architecture is already running on the Developer Preview for Pixel phones)", says one of the Google's developer page.

"We are not now supporting Treble, and do not plan to for these [OnePlus 3/ 3T and 5/ 5T] devices", said Adam Krisko during the AMA session on official OnePlus forum.

On the brighter side, you'll at least get Android 8.1 Oreo OTA, but the same can not be guaranteed with respect to 2018's Android P.

At the other end of the spectrum, Google is enabling Project Treble on the first-gen Pixel phones updating to Android Oreo now. That is because other OEMs go through their own process of customising the new Android version and then slowly roll out their skinned version of Android to its users.

It looks like only those devices will get the Project Treble which launch with at least at least Android 8.0 Oreo. The VI is offered to separate the Vendor Implementation from the actual Android OS framework. Of course, we are not sure if this applies only to India, but OnePlus will most likely want the focus on its newest flagship so we suspect it will be happen worldwide. Before this, the VI needed to be reworked after every single Android framework update.

OEMs can update devices with Nougat 7.1 and older to support Project Treble, though this does require reworking of OEMs firmware so many of them may not bother with Treble until a future release.
