Google introduced Project Treble to help manufacturers update devices to new versions of Android more quickly. Now, the company has shared Project Treble’s success and Android version distribution in a blog post. According to Google, there were two factors to consider in measuring the effectiveness of the program, complexity and time. The company increased the number of devices supporting Project Treble to 18 this year, representing 12 OEMs. This represents a significant increase over the previous year and shows that Project Treble is having an impact.

As far as distribution percentages go, according to Google, Oreo was on 8.9 percent of Android devices a year after its launch and Pie was on 22.6 percent devices after a year. The latter, 22 percent makes Pie the largest fraction of the entire Android ecosystem. We don’t know about the success of Treble with Android 10 distribution number until next year at the earliest. However, one can assume it to be more successful than Android Pie.

Meanwhile, Google has also confirmed a list of manufacturers who will have Android 10 on at least some of their devices by the end of 2019. The list includes Samsung, ASUS, LG, Motorola, OPPO, Realme, Sony, Sharp and Vivo. Samsung has already started pushing out Android 10 beta based on Android 10 to its flagship devices, while OnePlus and Xiaomi has released Android 10 to their flagships.

However, there is no mention of Nokia phones, which may be because Nokia 8.1 has already started receiving the Android 10 update. To recall, Nokia released an Android 10 update roadmap last month. 

It’s worth noting that the listed manufacturers will have phones running Android 10 by the end of the year, that doesn't mean all their phones will have the update. Here are top ten features of Android 10 you may have missed and these ten low-key features make a big difference.
