How Android engineers are winning the war on fragmentation

With the launch of Android 8.0 last year, Google released Project Treble into the world. Treble was one of Android’s biggest engineering projects ever, modularizing the Android operating system away from the hardware and greatly reducing the amount of work needed to update a device. The goal here is nothing short of fixing Android’s continual fragmentation problem, and now, six months later, it seems like the plan is actually working.

There are indeed some small signs of hope, but the reality is that as long as Samsung isn’t on board, it’s effectively all for naught. I find this article far too positive when you look at the reality of Android updates, but at least there’s some progress.
