Samsung is likely to replace Android with Fuchsia OS in the next few years
In May, it was revealed that Samsung may use Google’s Fuchsia OS in the future. It was not clear at the time whether the South Korean giant intended to use it as an operating system for its smartphones.
Samsung is preparing to say goodbye to Android and replace it with Fiosha. He adds that this will probably take several years. Ice Universe, the familiar revealer of the tech world, also confirms the recent rumor.
Google has been working on the open source Fuchsia operating system since at least 2016 And in late May, the first generation of smart displays Nest Hub was the first product to receive the update. This operating system is intended for a wide range of devices and offers many advantages (such as easier updates than Android).
According to Bloomberg in 2018, Google planned to move Android and Chrome devices, including Pixel smartphones, to Fiosha. At the time, the goal was to do so in the next half decade. In 2019, Google’s Hiroshi Lockheimer showed that the smart home is just the starting point for Fiosha’s new operating system.
Samsung’s involvement in the design of the Fiosha operating system became public when it began to participate in its development some time ago. Meanwhile, Google’s plans to expand the operating system to smart devices became more apparent when it began publishing its to-do list a few months ago. The company has reportedly formed a group called Fuchsia Devices and is preparing to bring the operating system to non-Google devices.
Putting the puzzle together suggests that Samsung phones may be running Fuchsia OS in the future. Huawei was also considering the platform. In 2018, it was reported that the Chinese company is trying to bring the operating system to one of the gaming phones.
