A month ago, journalists from 9to5Google found out that Google is developing a proprietary processor for its next smartphone. Now another confirmation of this has appeared on the network.
The proof was found by specialists from XDA Developers. They found a mention of the Whitechapel proprietary chip in the Android Open Source Project code. The SoC name appears more than once in the AOSP code. In some cases, in conjunction with an unknown device P21. Most likely, this is the codename of the Pixel 6 smartphone.
Recall that Google’s proprietary chip, according to rumors, will be built using a 5-nanometer process technology. It is credited with the Cortex-A78, Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 cores, as well as the Mali graphics accelerator. By the way, Google is developing Whitechapel together with Samsung engineers.
Google’s proprietary chip will be announced alongside the Pixel 6 at the end of the year.
