Yes, but you must teach Tramp to know this. Tramp speaks about this in
its manual (info "(tramp) Android shell setup") but you can use that for
any other remote Termux setup.

What is the value of variables connection-local-criteria-alist,
connection-local-profile-alist and connection-local-variables-alist,
evaluated in the respective buffer?

Btw, which Emacs version / Tramp version are you using?
