Google Fuchsia OS supports for Snapdragon 835

1 min read

Android has become the most widely used operating system. However, Google has not stopped here but has maintained a “no break” mentality, and Fuchsia OS is the place to carry the heavy responsibility. After investigation, the Fuchsia source library has added support for the Snapdragon 835 chipset (MSM8998), which can run on devices like Pixel 2.

Previously, Fuchsia OS was able to launch on Google Pixel 3 XL, which supported the Kirin 970 and the Opteron 845 platform, but they were all contributed by the third-party engineers.

Interestingly, at this year’s I/O conference, Google tried to make everyone not see Fuchsia as a replacement for Android, but instead emphasized its temporary focus on the positioning of IoT devices such as smart hardware.

It is worth mentioning that in June this year, Fuchsia OS developer website went online to provide technical documentation search. It is reported that Fuchsia OS abandoned the Linux kernel, but based on the Zircon micro core, written in the Flutter engine and Dart language.
