Google is currently developing an open source operating system called the Fuschia OS that’s rumored to replace Android and Chrome OS in the future. Though most of the reports that have surfaced lately are just largely based on speculation, there’s talk of Huawei testing the OS on the Honor Play.
According to this new development, Huawei has already managed to boot the Zircon kernel on the Honor Play which indicates a good starting point for the whole project. Since the Honor Play is using a Kirin 970 chipset, other Huawei and Honor units with the same processor might be tested for compatibility as well. This could include the Huawei P20 series, Huawei Mate 10, Honor 10, and Honor View 10.
Since the Fuschia OS is still far from completion, there’s no definite timeline on the project yet. At best, it could be estimated that Huawei might be the first manufacturer to release phones with the OS in around 2 to 3 years.
