Of late, Google is testing its in-development operating system, Fuchsia OS on Huawei smartphones. A new code change confirms the ongoing development, and Huawei may become the first official partner to arrive with the latest OS.
Google and Huawei have a great history together, I mean, the Nexus 6P from Huawei was the most successful smartphone from the Google. We feel no surprise if both these companies come up with a revolutionary new operating system together.
Interestingly, we’ve seen Huawei posting a handful public commits to Fuchsia’s Gerrit source code management. While none of them was a complete work, the things are steering to a fruitful development from the company.
The latest source code reveals that the company is working to run the OS on its homegrown kirin 970 processor. The development starts on the Honor Play, and it will soon come to other handsets as well. Also, the commit message makes it clear that the OS did boot up successfully Zircon, Fuchsia’s kernel.
With that said, the Huawei Honor Play is the first consumer Android device to be tested on Fuchsia. Also, Huawei is the first company outside of Google to make a significant contribution to the open source project.
