The smartphone can not support Project Treble even after upgrading to Oreo, because there is no separate partition? ASUS proved to companies like Samsung, Nokia and OnePlus that it is nonsense. The producer found a way to implement Project Treble in the ZenFone 4 (ZE554KL) model, which got Oreo through the update.
Project Treble is one of the most important novelties of Android Oreo, which is to help manufacturers in faster updates to subsequent versions of the system. Until now, it seemed that the implementation of this solution requires a separate partition ( vendor ), which can not be updated OTA due to the high probability of the smarfon deployment. We already know that for this reason the support for Project Treble will not be offered by currently sold smartphones from producers such as Nokia, OnePlus or Samsung, which did not get Android Oreo to start. When it seemed that the case was already lost for all producers, one of them found a way to circumvent the problem with a separate partition. This company turned out to be … ASUS.ASUS ZenFone 4 (ZE554KL) is a "flagship" medium in the Taiwanese offer, which debuted with Android Nougat on board and recently received an update to Android Oreo. Importantly, the smartphone supports Project Treble and without a vendor partition . How is this possible? The company's representative revealed on the official ASUS forum that the company placed all the necessary elements (BLOBs) in the system partition. Thanks to this ZenFone 4 (ZE554KL) has a chance for faster system updates , which Project Treble promises. There is only one tick in this solution – this model will not be compatible with software that was created for different devices with a separate vendor partition. This possibility will have smartphones with Android Oreo to start, although it is primarily an option for fans of unofficial software. It is not known whether ASUS will do the same for other smartphones , or whose idea it is. It is doubtful that Google would not know about the case. Perhaps this is the idea of Americans who were supposed to look for a way to implement Project Treble in older devices. May it be so, because it can help us all. https://www.gsmmaniak.pl/756202/asus-zenfone-4-ze554kl-recenzja/ Source: ASUS
