Google's new operating system Fuchsia first made its appearance in August previous year, but at that time, very little was known about the OS. At the time, we learned that this new operating system supports both x86 and aarch64 (ARM 64-bit) architectures and that it isn't built using a variant of Linux.
First discovered by Kyle Bradshaw at Hotfix, the user interface is called Armadillo and is said to serve as "the default system UI for Fuchsia".
But now according to Ars Technica, Google engineers have added the Fuchsia System UI called Armadillo.
Front and center is the user's profile image which, when tapped, can reveal a handful of quick settings for brightness and volume among others.That menu also has "Log Out" and "More" options, but it's unclear what those will do since nothing is working yet. However, the tabs are sized differently which could suggest multi-functionality or some form of new AI integration into Fuchsia. Now it's possible to download the source code, compile Fuchsia Armadillo into an Android APK and run it on an Android device. The final one will get released most possibly by the end of third quarter 2017. The OS, although not completely developed and still having only place-holder elements for most of the functions, for now, consists of an interface idea and not a functional one just yet. The whole UI sticks closely to Google's Material Design conventions, and makes use of Google's own Escher graphics rendering convention to do so. ArsTechnica has a good write-up of all of the dirty details, but their suggestion that this is Google's way of creating something that is all them, that gives them full control and that works everywhere, makes a lot of sense.

The new screenshots show a vertically-scrolling interface laden with app-based cards, known as stories, which can be placed anywhere on a smartphone or tablet touchscreen. Whether Fuchsia will ever be turned into a real product, however, remains to be seen.
As it runs on the Flutter SDK, Armadillo can be complied and run on any Android device.
Fuchsia could be that combo-operating system. Needless to say, you are now able to keep adding apps to the split screen view until the whole thing crashes, so it might need some reigning in.
We can't help but think if Fuchsia is Google's next step towards mobile OS?
