Google is building its own processors for future Pixel smartphones and Chromebooks, as various reports can confirm.
A few days ago a report emerged that wrote about a collaboration between Google and Samsung. Google is said to be working on its own processors for mobile devices and there is broad support from South Koreans. The following report is published a few days later and reaches a similar line. US media Axios has learned from its own sources that Google has recently made considerable progress in developing its own processors for Pixel smartphones and Chromebooks.
Consistent reports on Google processors for smartphones
Axios reports on the cooperation with Samsung, confirms production in 5 nanometers and knows the internal codename “Whitechapel”. Google is said to have received a working first version of these chips in recent days, so a market launch is not expected this year. Some of these chips are said to be developed to “always be connected”, which benefits the faster and more immediate reaction of the Google Assistant.
Huawei, Apple, and Samsung build their own processors in smartphones. Or at least their systems are optimized and expanded for their own devices through internal developments. The foundation is and often remains familiar technology, such as ARM’s processor core architecture or final production at companies like Samsung.
Therefore, Google becomes more independent, also in terms of prices.
