Honor 8 Lite or Huawei P8 Lite, whatever you can call it. These both are the name of one same device according to the different countries. New Oreo update just arrived for this device. Along with the new Oreo update arrival, Honor 8 Lite has also received the official Project Trebel support which is the really exciting for every Honor 8 Lite users. This mid-range smartphone is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 655 processor paired with the 3GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage. Well, it is difficult to understand the company’s intentions. Huawei P8 Lite was released in January 2017 and the same device with the same hardware components released later with the name tag of Honor 8 Lite in the different countries.
Huawei P8 Lite phone comes with the Android 7.0 Nougat. It was launched earlier in 2017 but because of the same components, users can install the Honor 8 Lite update on this device. It great to see Honor providing the new update on the Project Trebel support. However, there are many mobile phones launched in 2018 still, waiting for this update. The new update of EMUI 8 with the Android Oreo update brings this support.
Now, in the future with this new Project Trebel support the company will be able to deliver the new update even fast than before. I think this the great benefit of every customer. However, there are certain requirements are needed to get this Project Trebel support in the Huawei P8 Lite device. As per mentioned in the XDA Developers post, the Huawei P8 Lite 2017 users have to rebrand their device to Honor 8 Lite AL00C/AL00X/TL10C B220. After that, they will be able to install the new EMUI 8 – Android Oreo-based Beta Chinese update on their older Huawei P8 Lite device.

What is Project Treble?
Project Treble is most commonly described as an attempt by Google to modularize the Android OS framework to separate vendor-specific code. Other companies use different chips from vendors. now vendors refer to the silicon chip manufacturer like Qualcomm, Kirin… So when new Android version releases company need to depend on vendors. So the proprietary hardware works with the Android OS framework in a newer version of Android.
