One plus series is grabbing more support in its architecture for its users. Read covers it all!

One Plus 5, OnePlus 5T buyers are receiving the Oxygen 5.1.5 update that provides Project Treble support with the August security patch. This is one good news for OnePlus 5 and 5T users. Treble makes it easy to update the next version of Android for its developers. The upcoming arrival of the series is confirmed that previously published devices were not supporting the project Treble.

Good though!

The Oxygen OS 5.1.5 update for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T users, as mentioned earlier, brings the August security fix for Android (2018.8). It also easily changes how the password works on the lock screen - users can now confirm their PIN without clicking on the hash tag. To enable it, users need to go to Settings> Security & Screen lock> Screen lock> and to  PIN code. The most important change that is not mentioned in the change is probably the support of Project Treble. This development was monitored by a Twitter user and first reported by Android Police. 
This OnePlus support will help launch Android updates faster, with no chip makers like Qualcomm adding their software to the US market.
Launched last year, Project Treble provides a modular platform for Android that allows device manufacturers to provide faster software updates. It brings a vendor interface that separates the application from vendors, including lower-level software devices written primarily by silicon manufacturers with certain computer modifications, from the basic framework of the Android operating system.
Once a new application has been developed for the provider, the new interface will be redistributed through the Vendor Test Suite (VTS), similar to the CTS app for Android apps, to provide future compatibility for all news changes and ultimately for end users It offer an improved experience. This process replaces the current process, which means waiting for manufacturers to obtain the new version of the Chip Maker software to modify the software for their hardware.

As we mentioned, supporting the Treble project in OnePlus 5 and 5T is particularly surprising as the company stated that it will not support it in OnePlus 3, 3T, 5T and 5T. At the WADA session last November, Adam Krisko, project manager for OnePlus Demo, said he was not thinking of accepting Agudos in the above devices.

In addition, OnePlus received a similar upgrade to OxygenOS 5.1.5 in May, but this latest update for OnePlus 5 and 5T is unlike anything released by OnePlus users Numbering software updates is a bit confusing. The company has traditionally focused on offering specific hardware updates that vary by unit. Therefore, despite the same version number, the May OnePlus 6 update does not look like the OnePlus 5 update and the currently released 5P OnePlus version.
