That’s right, a few days back OnePlus confirmed in their forum that their phones including the 5T which was released earlier this month will not support Project Treble even after being updated to Android Oreo. Project Treble is a feature in Android Oreo that speeds up OS updates without having to rely on their chip partners such as Qualcomm to support it.
When treble was first announced, it seemed that all phones that get the Android Oreo update will be eligible to support Treble but sadly this is not the case albeit a few exceptions, so 5T which was released with an Android Nougat will not get Project Treble. This is bad news for all those OnePlus owners as they would not receive faster Android updates (Android updates have never been fast or consistent to begin with).
It’s sad to see that OnePlus does not even attempt to support this feature since adding support is not necessarily impossible as you can see with the Pixel Phone which has this feature despite being shipped with Android Nougat initially.
