Android maker, Google is reportedly working on a new operating system called Fuchsia. The Verge claimed to have found out its code in Google’s code depository and on GitHub. It also said that the fledgling OS has a number of unique features.
In its report, The Verge said, “All we really know is that this looks like a fresh start for Google, as the operating system does not use the Linux kernel – a core of basic code that underpins both Android and Chrome OS.”
There is a flower called Fuchsia with a vivid purplish-red colour but it is very difficult to relate that with anything one could thing of in an operating system.
Reportedly, the new OS either could be a combination of Google’s Chrome and Android OS or could be a different OS altogether for Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
The Google’s Fuchsia is built on a kernel called Magenta which as per Google’s documents is meant for phones and personal computers and use “fast processors” and “non-trivial amounts of RAM”, as per the report. This means that the OS is meant for many types of devices and not just internet able devices.
