OnePlus has confirmed that neither the OnePlus 5T, nor any current OnePlus device, will receive Google's Project Treble functionalities. The company dropped the confirmation during its AMA on the official OnePlus forums yesterday.

Project Treble is a new endeavor by Google which supplies new APIs that make future OS updates of Android devices more viable by circumventing carrier/OEM interference. It's supposed to set the platform for a more unified Android OS framework, which would also make OS/ROM development easier. 

Treble comes by default on any Android device launched on Oreo, but recent developments—the first-gen Pixels, and the Essential PH-1—are indication that devices on Android 7.1 Nougat can be updated to support the project. OnePlus is not keen on going that way, though, as no current OnePlus device will be updated to support Treble. It's no surprise, really, as the company has a quite sketchy update policy—company staff once again confirmed that Android P will be the last major the new OnePlus 5T receives, even though it was launched months after Oreo was released.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
