In the future, Samsung could take over the Fuchsia OS from Google

Tech Highlights:

  • Samsung is ready to say goodbye to Android and replace it with Fuchsia. They also state that this will most likely take several years. The rumor has been confirmed by Leaker Ice Universe.

  • Samsung may embrace Google’s Fuchsia OS in the future. It was unclear at the time if the South Korean conglomerate intended to utilize it as an operating system for its devices.

Since at least 2016, Google has been working on the open-source Fuchsia operating system, and the first-generation Nest Hub smart display was the first device to receive an upgrade to the platform in late May. The operating system is designed for a wide range of devices and has numerous benefits over Android, including simple updatability.

Google had contemplated migrating Android and Chrome devices, including Pixel smartphones, to Fuchsia. At that time, the goal was to make this happen within the next half-decade. In 2019, Google’s Hiroshi Lockheimer indicated that the smart home was just the starting point for the new platform.

Google wants to expand its next-generation operating system to other form factors

Samsung’s involvement in the OS became clear when it started contributing to its development some time back. Google’s plans to expand the operating system to more smart devices and other form factors became apparent when it began posting job listings a few months back. The company has apparently also created a Fuchsia Devices team and is gearing up to bring the operating system to non-Google devices.

That’s further proof that Samsung’s phones may run on Fuchsia OS in the future. Huawei was also considering adopting the platform. It was reported in 2018 that the Chinese company was working to bring the OS to a gaming phone. Its in-house operating system, Harmony OS is also microkernel-based just like Fuchsia.
