Qualcomm's Snapdragon optimization and Google's Project Treble should make Android P updates faster
Timely updates for Android users have been a problem going back to Android 2.1. Soon, the "F" word, fragmentation, started to be used in connection with Android updates (although the other "F word" is still often muttered by Android users waiting for an update). The latest data available show that as of April 16th, only 4.6% of Android users had Android Oreo installed on their handsets. Together with Project Treble, Google's plan to make Android "modular" in order to make updates easier to push out, Qualcomm's optimization could result in more Android phones running on the latest Android build.
It all sounds great in theory, but the last word still belongs to the manufacturers. Back in March, we pointed out that of five major Android producers (Google, HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung), only one had increased the speed at which it updated its devices to Android Oreo. That manufacturer was Google.
