Apparently, the OnePlus 5T is the fastest-selling device in the company's history. However, none of these OnePlus phones will support one of Oreo's main features, Project Treble. For those you who, who are not aware of Project Treble, here is a brief introduction to it.
On the brighter side, you'll at least get Android 8.1 Oreo OTA, but the same can not be guaranteed with respect to 2018's Android P.
Android 8.0 Oreo is still making its way to various devices, and it will take a while until it will reach all mobile phones. Project Treble is the answer to this major problem Android is facing since its launch.
When it comes to rolling out a new software update, Google Project Treble is all about keeping vendor implementation separate from Android OS framework.
This might not be well-received by most of the OnePlus fans given that the introduction of Project Treble could have acted as a catalyst in bringing newer OS updates to devices. The whole process is explained in the following picture. The video below continues the blogger's inspection of OnePlus's new flagship, now doing a teardown of the device.
In India, however, the 64GB OnePlus 5T has nearly fully sold out on Amazon (in fact by time of publication it may have gone completely, there was only one unit left on the store page).
To recall, Google has been working with some companies to implement its Project Treble with Android Oreo. OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T will get the Oreo update by late December or early 2018.
