Samsung Partners with Google on Upcoming Fuchsia Operating System

Recent Report Claims Samsung is Contributing to Google’s Upcoming Fuchsia OS

Fuchsia, Google’s long-awaited cross-platform operating system, has received some assistance from Samsung, a recent news report claims…

Google Fuchsia has been in development since 2016. The ostensibly nimble operating system is the tech giant’s attempt to create a brand new type of software that will run on all sorts of devices. These include, but are not limited to, smartphones, tablets, computers, IoT devices, wearables, and more. However, building it has presented a number of challenges. But, it could be one step closer to materializing, as Samsung has contributed to its development.

Samsung Partners with Google on Upcoming Fuchsia Operating System

This isn’t the first time Google has partnered up with another company to create Fuchsia. The conglomerate has previously worked with Huawei, among others, on its still somewhat secretive project. Now, Samsung is appearing as an author of its own “Flash-Friendly File System.” Also known, as “F2FS,” this system is an alternative for managing files on a storage device. It’s also become a serious competitor to EXT4 in the last couple or few years.

Google isn’t commenting on the news report. But, the company is continuing its efforts to build out Fuchsia. Whether the OS will ever actually see the light of day in public use remains to be seen.
