Rumors have been circulating on the network for several years that Google is working on a proprietary chip. Now journalists of the 9to5Google edition have found out some details about him.
According to the leaked documents, the processor goes by the code name Whitechapel and the number GS101 (GS stands for Google Silicon). The leak says that the Korean manufacturer Samsung is involved in the development of the chipset. By the way, such information has already appeared on the network. Therefore, it is likely that Google’s first SoC will be similar to Exynos chips.
There are no platform characteristics yet. It is only known that two devices with the codenames Raven and Oriole will receive it first. They should be released to the market this fall. With a high degree of probability, we are talking about the Pixel 6 and its simplified model.
The proprietary processor will help Google compete with Apple in the future, as well as save money because the top-end Qualcomm chips are becoming more expensive every year. Rumor has it that it is precisely because of the high price that the company installed the Snapdragon 765G SoC in the current flagship Pixel 5, instead of the Snapdragon 865.
