Project Treble itself is dedicated to making it easier for manufacturers to push the latest version of Android to their devices, so this seems like one move in the holistic effort to get the mobile OS' ecosystem up-to-date more rapidly and in greater numbers.

For Android Q, there's the hope that more phones from more manufacturers will join the pre-release ranks in engaging its users in new software.

Google is planning to officially take the wraps off Android Q software at the company's very own Developer's conference Google I/O. Android Q is touted to be the most privacy-centric version of the operating system.

A year ago, when Google had launched the Android P Beta Program, its Pixel range of smartphones had received the update immediately.

Android Q will nearly certainly be unveiled at the annual Google I/O conference in late Spring/early Summer. However, a year ago things changed when Google allowed non-Pixel phones to its beta programme. He didn't reveal any further information but emphasized the trend is positive and strong. The list included several brand new Android handsets, even devices that were not available in stores: Sony Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21, OnePlus 6, and Essential PH-1. The number is bigger for the upcoming Android release, but we don't quite know the OEMs involved just yet.

Well, all the above developments reflect that Android Q Beta is finally paving its way for the general public and that too with more smartphone support. "I can not share the exact numbers yet", the report quoted Malchev as saying. And I think it was for the first time we had all of these companies line up to do developer previews and betas for Android Pie well ahead of the AOSP publication date. According to Iliyan Malchev, a Google employee who is working on Project Treble, Google is going to allow more brands to get compatible smartphones on the Android Q beta programme.
