Thanks for the clarification Dear Jeroom.
As I checked a few pages on xda and android.com, understand project treble is a part of android os framework starting with Oreo. And I believe that HMD took advantage of Treble to publish Oreo Beta, being among the very few device manufacturers. (Although we haven't get the public release yet, beta was released only a week after I purchased my Nokia 8)
Your question still needs to be answered by moderators :)
Hi Jeroom & Naufrago!
Yes, Treble is part of Android Oreo 8.0 and will be included in Nokia 8.
Have a great day!
Support for project Treble was/is not enabled in the Nokia 8 beta. Just to be sure, does your answer implicate that HMD/Nokia will specifically be adding support for the final version of Oreo, as Oreo can also be rolled out without Treble support?
Have a great day!
After further reading on available resources, I realized that my own comments seemed little bit inaccurate to me. I've just run a test (piece of code on termux) on my nokia 8 w/oreo beta which shows it does not support project treble. After what Anna said about final release, I became more and more curious :)
I am downloading the official one right now :-)
Would someone with the right knowledge, be kind and check if project treble is activated when they have installed the official version.
Treble is not in this official 8 oreo update sadly
getprop ro.treble.enabled false
There's been a lot of discussion around Treble and we wanted to clarify the situation. We're aware our previous message might have been a little unclear and we're sorry for any misunderstanding.
Nokia 8 was launched with Android 7.0 Nougat™ however we recently upgraded this device to Android 8.0 Oreo™. Unfortunately Google only supports Project Treble on phones launching on Android 8.0 Oreo™, not phones upgrading to their software.
HMD is fully committed to implementing Project Treble on all new Android Oreo products in the near future and we apologise for any disappointment this may cause.
