Google has been working on the new Fuchsia OS for quite some time now, and we have been eagerly waiting to see what it looks like. Now, it turns out that Huawei is testing the Fuchsia OS on Honor Play.
9to5Google spotted a new commit made by a Huawei engineer in the project. This could be a clue to what’s coming next as Huawei developers have reportedly made a lot of commits to the project in the past year.
What’s more interesting is the latest commit that specifically mentions support for the Kirin 970 chipset. In addition to this, it also confirms that Fuschia’s Core platform “Zircon” was tested on the Honor Play.
Now, this is actually a big deal because Honor Play is the first consumer smartphone to run Fuchsia OS. The involvement and contribution from another company besides Google in this project is also significant.
It’s also known that Google and Huawei have a pretty good history as they collaborated to bring Google’s one of the most loved phones — the Nexus 6P. So it makes perfect sense for the two companies to work together once again.
