Fuchsia, Google's forthcoming OS for devices of all kinds, develop and pick up all kinds of devices and prototypes, including the Google Home Hub and the Pixelbook. In that time, we've been wondering when we go to Google Pixel series phone. Fuchsia is picking up support for "Crosshatch" aka the Google Pixel 3 XL, via an indie developer.
Fuchsia's Gerrit source code management, spotted by Redditor mishudark, claims to bring initial support for the Google Pixel 3 XL (or Crosshatch) to Fuchsia.
This includes booting the zircon kernel via the fastboot, and displaying the zircon virtual console (think like a command line) on the Pixel 3 XL screen. This console is the only UI though, as it does not tap into any of the other layers of Fuchsia yet.
Because the support is still in such an early state, and Fuchsia is not much to look at right now, we Interestingly, this new support was not added this to the new OS on their Pixel 3 XL named Zhuowei Zhang . Zhang is known by the Android Minecraft community as the developer of BlockLauncher, a tool to let you use shaders and mods in Minecraft Pocket Edition. Zhang now spends his time doing interesting code projects for his personal blog.
Ace of Fuchsia it's hard to say what will happen next. Huawei.
On the other hand, the Pixel 3 XL is Google's own hardware, and Google would probably want to get more control over Fuchsia's future on the device. It's also plausible that Google could already be working internally with Fuchsia on the Pixel 3 XL, and that this is a duplicated effort.
No one from the Fuchsia team has reviewed the commit yet, but we'll be watching it throughout the year day for their response.
If nothing else, it's clear. As the OS progresses, it may not be able to do so with our current phones with early test builds of Fuchsia.
