In this video, I’ll be showing you how to see if your phone supports Project Treble. NOTE: This only applies if your phone has been updated to Android 8.0 Oreo or higher.

Phones that shipped with Oreo pre-installed are required to support Project Treble — but that isn’t the case if your phone gets updated to Oreo. Some OEMs are adding Treble support, others aren’t. But you can see if your phone got it by running a single command in the Termux app.

Treble will help speed up Android updates in the future by separating the OS from the vendor-specific aspects of your firmware. In other words, OEMs whose phones support Treble only need to update the Android OS, not blobs or binaries or any of that stuff. Treble is also proving to be a HUGE help with AOSP custom ROM support, so cross your fingers and hope your phone returns that “true” value as shown with the PH-1 in the video.
