Google’s Project Treble will Reduce Android DeFragmentation with Timely Firmware Updates



Android is one of the biggest mobile OS right now in the market with millions and millions of device running on it. After pushing a ton of updates, now in 2017, we are currently experiencing Android 7.0 dubbed Nougat. Over the past couple of years, we have seen a bunch of versions of Android and it is safe to say that Android has evolved a lot over time. However, sadly the same can’t be said for each and every Android user out there in the market.

Although the current version of Android which is out now is 7.0 Nougat, most users are still stuck on the older versions of the software. In fact, in most cases, users are still running on something like 5.0 Lollipop which is about 2 years old now. And this is one of the major issues with Android. The fact that OEMs refrain from providing a timely update or no update in most cases since it is too late is really frustrating. But now it looks like Google has finally acknowledged the same and has announced something new.

Project Treble is Google’s answer to this horrifying nightmare that most Android users are going through. This is the company’s new plan to sort of modularize Android OS. It will separate the main OS framework code from the hardware code which is specific to each and every individual vendor. This will essentially allow the OEMs to get over their ‘adding custom features and testing’ phase a lot easily and make the whole process a lot easier and quicker to go through.

Google says that it is the biggest change to the low-level system architecture of Android till date. This is truly an exciting news for all the Android users out there. This is already live on the Google Pixel‘s Android O Developer Preview. There’s a whole lot of technical side to it and if you want to read more about it in detail then you can head over to the source link where you can understand how the whole project will work out. However, long story short, with Project Treble, Google will be able to deliver the Android OS way more efficiently than ever.

Having said that, we would like to know what do you think about this. This is something that excites you now since the updates could be much faster? Be sure to let us know by dropping a comment down below and also, stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more info like this.
