Android P DP3 Gets Ported To Several Non-Supported Smartphones Courtesy Of Project Treble


Thanks to Project Treble, a developer on the XDA forums has managed to port the Android P Developer Preview 3 (or beta 4) to various devices. The port is currently compatible with smartphones having a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and full support for Project Treble. The port has been confirmed to have booted on a number of smartphones listed below.

  • Galaxy S9+ Exynos (starlte2)
  • OnePlus 5 (cheeseburger)
  • OnePlus 5T (dumpling)
  • Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus (vince)
  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 / Note 5 Pro (whyred)
  • Zuk Z2 Plus and Z2 Pro (z2_plus and z2_row)
  • Redmi Note 4 (mido)
  • LG V30 (joan)
  • Redmi 4 Prime (markw)
  • Redmi 4X (santoni)
  • Redmi 4A (rolex)
  • Lenovo P2 (kuntao)
  • Redmi 3s/3x/Prime (land)
  • Xiaomi Mi 6 (sagit)
  • Moto G5 (cedric)
  • Moto Z Play (addison)
  • Xiaomi Mi 5s (capricorn)

Out of the above list of smartphones, only the Galaxy S9+, OnePlus 5/5T, Redmi 5 Plus and Redmi Note 5 Pro have support for Treble from the manufacturer. The other devices on the list have been made compatible for Treble by the community. 

In the past, running a newer Android version on a device was only possible if the source code for that version was available. The source code for Android P isn't available yet, but still, the upcoming Android version can already be run on many devices. This is a huge feat for community development.

The only known global-bug is VoLTE, but it is expected that one or the other essential feature (such as that of calling, WiFi or camera) will not work on a particular device. The bugs in the Android P port will likely differ from one device to another. The XDA forum thread linked in the source consists of information about several bugs and how to fix them. We recommend you to read the forum thread thoroughly if you plan to go ahead with the installation of the Android P beta.
