Google Home Hub could be running mysterious 'Fuchsia OS' under the hood

11 October 2018 3

Fuchsia operating system begins to take a shape of a mature operating system last year rising from the command line and is expected to take over Android OS in the next five years. The expected ‘All in one’ operating system is reportedly underworking from Google to run on various devices like mobile devices, IoTs, tablets, laptops and more. It’s actually meant to be a single OS that runs on all the future tech we get across. In the latest ‘Made by Google’ event, we went across various products from Google, though Google Home Hub could be the first device to feature the latest version of the Fuchsia OS.

The previously known device that is thought to run on Fuchsia OS was Astro (a prototype device) that featured a 7-inch display with below standard specs especially for the days we live in. In the latest development in this regard, we get to find that Google Home Hub utilizes Amlogic chip instead of Qualcomm SD624 SoC and also doesn’t run on Android Things OS, but rather uses the ‘Cast Platform’, unlike other smart displays.

Chances are that Google Home Hub actually runs upon some version of Fuchsia and is a new iteration of Astro test device (even though it's not officially confirmed, but is rather named as ‘Cast Platform’), as various third parties are working hard to dig into finding a relation between the two (Cast Platform and Fuchsia). What’s your take on this? Let us know in the comment section below.
