Commit shows that Googles Fuchsia OS is being tested




on Huawei Honor Play
A commit on Google’s own development platform Google Source shows that developers are taking steps to get the new os working on a Huawei Honor Play with its Kirin 970-soc. In addition, Huawei also contributes relatively much to the development of Fuchsia OS.

The changes also jumped into the editorials of 9to5Google . The Google developer says that he has succeeded in booting zircon on the Honor Play. That is the kernel of Fuchsia OS, which means that the battle for compatibility is still at an early stage. The Honor Play is the first phone that appears in this way in the codebase of Fuchsia OS, according to 9to5Google.

The Honor Play is a gaming phone from Huawei. The soc that it runs on is used in many other Huawei devices, which would mean that if Fuchsia actually runs on this phone, it can also run easily on the other devices . These include the P20 Pro, Honor 10 and Mate 10 Pro.

Although Google and Huawei seemingly well through a door, it is different when it comes to the US government and the Chinese company. President Donald Trump signed a law earlier this year that partly prohibits US government agencies from using the Huawei hardware. This for fear of espionage via the phones.

Last month , Google reportedly showed a Google Home Hub at a presentation that also ran on Fuchsia OS. In 2016 it appeared that Google is working on the new mobile operating system. It may have to follow Android in the long run, but it probably takes years before the operating system is ready.
