Fuchsia OS might replace Android. Here’s why?
Fuchsia OS might be the netx big thing from Google. As we know all the tech giants are working on interconnecting everything. The reason behind switching from android to Fuchsia OS might be the same.
Android was originally developed for camera. Android had some serious power for image processing. Just when Symbian was booming in the mobile phone industry android was still in the cameras.
Android co-founder Andy Rubin said that Android was actually built for digital cameras. When smartphones took off, the Android team switched gears and tweaked the system accordingly.
Why Fuchsia was developed?
As you guys read above, Android was actually developed for digital camera. Even after being developed for cameras, developers switched gears and got into mobile operating system.
Both Android and Chrome OS are built on a modified version of the Linux kernel, but Fuchsia OS is built on a totally new micro-kernel named Zircon. Zircon drops all of the extra baggage in favor of an efficient and flexible kernel that can run on smaller and more portable hardware. And since they’ve created the kernel themselves, they have complete control over everything.
Now what is a Kernel , i will explain in a layman language.
The kernel is a computer program that is the core of a computer’s operating system, with complete control over everything in the system.On most systems, it is one of the first programs loaded on start-up. It handles the rest of start-up as well as input/output requests from software, translating them into data-processing instructions for the central processing unit. It handles memory and peripherals like keyboards, monitors, printers, and speakers.
Fuchsia OS is a cross device, open source operating system from google. It is actually optimized for personal computing, Mobile usage and low power equipment(IOT devices) usage. The ability to run on various platforms like smartphones, ATM , Elevators, Televisions, Lights , Smart home devices, traffic lights will inter connect every single thing. As in Various countries, google does provide free internet to few of the public places, the time is near when google will take over every single part of our day.
Google assistant will have a built in support for Fuchsia OS’s context aware environment. Context Aware environment is the ability of a system or system component to gather information about its environment at any given time and adapt behaviors accordingly.
Huawei has already started testing Fuchsia OS on Kirin 970 powered Honor Play
How will Fuchsia OS benefit us?
Although we know that smartphones have made our life pretty amazing and comfortable. but still we have to initiate things ourselves. Lets take an example how will Fuchsia OS will impact us. Suppose you are listening to a song and you are about to leave for office. All the IOT devices are connected with your phone and car,.The lights will be turned off automatically, the doors will be locked automatically. Your elevator will be knowing, where you parked your car last night. As u sit inside the car the same song you were listening too will start playing from the point where it ended at your home.
The applications will be even more it will need time and patience to see everything into practicality. Google is pretty awesome with innovations, let’s see, when we get to see FUCHSIA OS in our day to day use.
