Google and Qualcomm work to bring the best of the iPhone to Android | Tech
Without question, there are features where iOS is better than Android and vice versa. And although the news from one operating system reaches the other quite frequently, there is something that Android was taking time, but Google and Qualcomm are working to solve it. The Mountain Viewe company is reportedly working to increase long-term Android support.
Android seeks to match iOS
According to information shared from The Verge, Qualcomm and Google have announced that they will work to expand Project Treble. This project aims to simplify operating system updates to be easier for device manufacturers to update phones and tablets to new versions of Android.
They will extend limit of Android updates
The plan’s goal is that users can have the latest version of Android on their devices. Qualcomm’s new chips will support four Android operating system updates and four years of security updates
To achieve the goal of Project Treble, device makers could simply use Google’s updated piece of software without having to worry about waiting for updated components from silicon companies, like Qualcomm.
In this sense, the new approach with Qualcomm makes it easier for the chipmaker to cut down on additional software combinations which he was forced to admit (thanks to Treble’s previous efforts), allowing for faster updates, at least in theory.
But, for the majority of Android users to enjoy this benefit, it will take a few years. Qualcomm is only making this commitment for future devices, starting with the upcoming Snapdragon 888 hitting phones in early 2021.
Thus, from now on there will be no fewer situations such as the famous case of a user who expressed his annoyance because his Galaxy of 2018 of 1,000 euros was not updated and an iPhone of 2015 was
