After reuniting to create a popular Google smartphone "Nexus 6P", the Chinese manufacturer of smartphones, Huawei, became the first test-test for Google's operating system (Fuchsia). Google is developing the state-of-the-art Fuchsia operating system for the new generation of smartphones. In a post, a Huawei engineer directly revealed that the company was working on launching the Kirin 970-based operating system, starting with the "Honor Play" smartphone, 9To5Google announced on Friday.
"Boot Zircon on the" Honor Play "smartphone from Kirin 970," wrote the engineer. "Zircon" is the basic platform that exploits the Fuchsia operating system. "Honor Play," Huawei's newest smartphone, was launched in August to make its mark in the sub-Rs 25,000 segment in India. Other phones that run the Kirin 970 chipset and which may be compatible with the Fuchsia system in the future will include Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10 Porsche Design and P20 among others.
Unfortunately, because of political issues, many of these devices – including Honor Play – are not available for sale in the US, which would make it hard for enthusiasts in that country to get their hands on one, the report added. In August 2016, it was revealed that Google has begun working on a new operating system to add to the current Google operating offerings – the Android and Chrome operating system.
