Google's "Project Trebble" will modularize Android to make updates faster

Google is hoping to speed up this process with Project Trebble, which changes the architecture of Android.
Project Treble's updates do not seem to cater to older devices. The first thing to note is that this is a change to the low-level system architecture for the Android operating system and is meant for device manufacturers who need to implement changes to the OS version of a device as part of the update process for the software.
Android O is the foundation for the change, and it is being made in a manner to make the update cycle faster and affordable for the manufacturers. Yes, we are talking about the messy update cycle, which has got most of the Android users complaining. If device manufacturers can't get new drivers for all their components, their phone or tablet is essentially dead in the water when it comes to updates.
Quite complicated indeed. But from this point on Android will gain a "Vendor Interface" (VI), thanks to a new development effort Google calls Project Treble. It eliminates one step from the drill that would help the OEMs to deliver timely updates.
Silicon manufacturers pass the modified new release to device makers-the companies that design and manufacture Android devices.
Treble is technically a vendor interface that sits between the Android OS framework and the device-specific, lower-level software written by chipmakers. Device makers modify the new release again as needed for their devices.
It's powered by the new Vendor Test Suite (VTS) and is conceptually similar to the Compatibility Test Suite (CTS), which lets developers write apps that work across devices running on different hardware from different manufacturers.
According to the post, it's the interface that gives developers access to "hardware-specific features of Android".
But instead of apps, Treble will work to ensure that all the chips inside of phones function properly when Google releases the latest version of Android.
It's likely we'll hear more about this at Google I/O next week.

May admits energy bills could still rise despite cap pledge
Though the cap does equal a freeze, the policy announcement and reasons behind it - the UK's soaring energy prices - are the same. The proposed Tory cap would be introduced on standard variable tariffs, which around 70% of households are on.
