A month ago, 9to5Google journalists found out that Google is developing a proprietary processor for its next smartphone. Now the network has another confirmation of this.
What is known?
The proof was found by XDA Developers. They found a reference to the proprietary Whitechapel chip in the Android Open Source Project code. The SoC name appears in the AOSP code more than once. In some cases, in conjunction with an unknown P21 device. With a high degree of probability, this is the code name of the Pixel 6 smartphone.
Recall, Google’s proprietary chip, if you believe the rumors, will be built with a 5-nanometer process technology. He 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.
When to expect?
The announcement of Google’s proprietary chip should take place along with the Pixel 6 at the end of the year.
