More sutainable Android Software with Project Treble and 6-y LTS Kernels on Android O?

Recently, we could read and hear about Google putting some effort in facilitating easier updates for android devices:

So, even though three years are not the promised four years, we can still see a trend of increasing years of guaranteed software support on Android phones.

That is a positive trend! I hope that Google takes the gloves off soon and guarantees four upgrades to a new android version, forcing other vendors to at least start guaranteeing something for their phones. As I said before, this would really be a unique selling point. Also this would really mean a big leap forward regarding sustainability of Android phones! Let’s see if any of the Oreo Phones being release now will support Android S 😉
