A few months before, Google introduced Project Treble as a new feature in Android Oreo. Basically, Android updates take a long way before reaching the users. In fact, it starts with the Google’s development labs then to driver creation by component manufacturers, followed by firmware implementation and testing by manufacturers and at last network operators.
For each and every important updates we receive, the chipset makers are required to make adjustments, if not, the processor won't receive the update. Now, when it comes to Treble, it will be possible to update the Android software independently from the vendor implementation.
To make it simple, it is the major change in the architecture of the Android OS framework, which makes it easier, faster, and cut cost for manufacturers to update devices to a new version of Android. Project Treble will be coming to all new devices launched with Android O and beyond. In fact, the new Project Treble architecture is already running on the Developer Preview of O for Pixel phones.
