The network has released a new report for January 2018, which includes the shares of particular Android versions on the smartphone market. Project Treble is currently the only hope that these numbers will ever change.
Statistics on the share of individual versions of Android appear every month and it's safe to say that every month Google admits that it has been failing in this area for years. It is known, we all know, but recently it turned out that the company from Mountain View is actually working hard to change this state of affairs. During this year, smartphones should appear that will support Project Treble – a new way for quick and painless Android updates , without the involvement of producers or with minimal work. This is the last hope that something will change in the subject of updates in the world of Android. At least in my opinion.Look at statistics only. In January 2018 we can say that under the control of Android Oreo presented almost a year ago, it works … 0.7% of devices . Well, it does not look very good. It is true that the number jumped by 0.2%, but it makes me smile on my face more than any satisfaction with the fact itself. Android Nougat is doing quite well – the system has jumped by three percentage points and currently has a 26.3% share. https://www.gsmmaniak.pl/791074/samsung-galaxy-s8-note-8-oreo-treble/ Immediately after Nougat there was a place for Android Marshmallow and Android Lollipop – looking at these percentages, we can confidently say that a huge number people use really outdated software on their smartphones , which can sometimes cause problems and be just … dangerous. It is good to see, however, that the shares of the aforementioned systems begin to gradually fall from month to month. https://www.gsmmaniak.pl/783294/nokia-smartfony-project-treble/ Project Treble and new smartphones should effectively translate into how Google will provide us with new updates. The problem is that statistics do not change too quickly, you know why? Because you need to have a smartphone compatible with Project Treble, and I doubt that the people who bought the flagship in this or last year, will immediately throw in to take advantage of the news of the American company. Knowing Google, the manufacturer will change his plans another 50 times and in the end everything will work differently than expected at the beginning. Well, it's probably the last hope. I have already mentioned it somewhere, right? Source: Android Developers
