Samsung Note 8 And Galaxy S8 Oreo Update Won't Bring Treble Support


Android 8.0 Oreo brings many new feature and some under-the-hood ones. The most amazing feature for overall Android development is the Project Treble. It is Google's final push to remedy slow Android updates by separating the basic, core Android framework, from the manufacturer image, and allow it to be updated much faster than before. 

There are a few Project Treble phones currently on the market, including Huawei's Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, but, unfortunately, Samsung's ultrapopular Galaxy S8 or Note 8, won't be one of those after their respective Oreo updates, it seems. 

An app called Termux was run on both phones, running their respective Android 8.0 betas, but it didn't return a "true" value. So, now there can be two things, one Samsung has either decided to keep Treble in hiding until the retail Oreo update version hits the handsets or the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 are never meant to have their Android core split from Samsung's Experience UI overlay.
