NEW DELHI: Google is reportedly going the Apple way for its subsequent flagship phone — Pixel 6. According to a report in 9to5Google, the firm’s flagship phone for 2021, Pixel 6, may run on the firm’s personal customized System on Chip.
“Google’s upcoming phones for this fall, including the presumed Pixel 6, will be among the first devices to run on the “GS101” Whitechapel chip”, says the report. As it suggests, the chipset is codenamed as Whitechapel. While the GS presumably stands for Google Silicon.
This might be just like how Apple iPhones run on the firm’s personal A-sequence Bionic chipsets. Last year, Apple additionally moved away from Intel-powered laptops, and launched Macbooks with its personal Silicon chip, M1.
Reports about Google’s personal methods on a chip (SoCs) first emerged in 2020. At that point it was mentioned that Google is collaborating with Samsung to develop its personal SoC. The reviews additionally mentioned that Whitechapel might be utilized in Pixel telephones and Chromebook laptops.
As per the new documentation seen by 9to5Google, Whitechapel is used alongside the codename “Slider,” a reference that has additionally been present in the Google Camera app. The report goes on to say that this fall’s Pixel telephones will certainly be powered by Google’s Whitechapel platform.
Google’s personal chipset is being developed with Samsung Semiconductor’s system massive-scale integration (SLSI) division, the report says. This means that the Google chips may have some commonalities with Samsung Exynos, together with software program parts.
The report additionally says the first phone to be constructed on the new chipsets might be ‘Raven’ and ‘Oriole’. These are codenames for two Pixel telephones which are at present underneath improvement.
