Many years ago, it was discovered that Google was working on a new operating system codenamed Fuchsia OS. It is, what some believe, the successor to Android where it is said that it will give Google a greater degree of control over Android that it never had, similar to how Apple controls iOS.
None of this is confirmed at the moment, but according to leakster Ice Universe, it appears that one of Fuchsia’s potential adopters would be Samsung. The oft-accurate leakster claims that Samsung could adopt the new operating system in the future, although it is admittedly rather vague as to when that future is.

Also, we’re not sure if this means that Samsung will eventually abandon Android in favor of Fuchsia, or if they will offer both platforms. This also begs the question of what Google plans to do with Android. Will it eventually replace Android or will both operating systems exist side-by-side?
It will be interesting to see what Fuchsia will be able to bring to the table, especially given that we’ve been hearing about this for quite a while now, which means that Google could possibly be heavily invested in it. Either way, Google I/O is taking place soon so maybe we will hear more about their plans for Fuchsia OS then.
