Fuchsia OS is GoogleDevelopmentIn the operating system, this has been passed for a long time, it is reported that it is expected to replace Android within 5 years. It is suitable for a wide range of products, from mobile phones and laptops to IoT devices. However, so far we have only seen it running on Pixelbook. Today, we can use this product to confirm that Fuchsia OS can run on more devices.

But it's really hard to understand why Google is giving the Astro a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1024 x 600. It's so shabby! These are extremely outdated configurations compared to some of the current specifications. In addition to this detail, what we know is that Astro will have a Amlogic S905D2 chip and is doing EVT testing. EVT, however, means it will be released soon. Diya Jolly, vice president of Google, told the media at a previous event that, Google Home Hub uses Amlogic chips rather than running Qualcomm SD624 SoC. She also confirmed that unlike the other smart screens we saw this year, Home Hub would not run on Android Things, but rather the "Cast platform." Combined with these leads, media mined the latest Google Home application and updated it to prepare for Google Home Hub. It was in this application that the code name for Home Hub was found: "Estelle". And, according to Google employees, Estelle is indeed Google Home Hub.

With this, the media continued to search for the Gerrit source code of Fuchsia, giving a glimpse of "Estelle"

To be clear, this does not mean that Google Home Hub can run Fuchsia OS out of the box. The official news is that the device uses the "Cast platform", but it is worth noting that in addition to let Chromium run in Fuchsia, Google is still trying to port the Chromecast feature to Fuchsia.

Another interesting case comes from the Gerrit source code library of Fuchsia OS. In the past week, a large number of commits have been recorded in a branch called "milestone-1011". The following numbers of 1011 are very interesting. It is very likely that on October 11th, students who are familiar with project management can make a bold guess that it is likely to mean the deadline for milestones. This is 11 days before the Google Home Hub October 22 release date. There are of course other possibilities, but it is interesting anyway.

Finally, Google Home Hub seems likely to be used as a test device like the Pixelbook. Even if there is a lot of evidence to prove that it is Fuchsia OS, it is just a guess, wait for Google's new news, and continue to look forward to Fuchsia OS!
