Google to introduce their own processor for the next Pixel Smaprtphone

 For the past few years now, there have been rumors about whether Google would move away from Qualcomm and take an Apple/Samsung approach for its own hardware. The rumors have been swirling about a potential Google SoC ever since the company acquired HTC’s Pixel hardware division. However, new phones have come and gone, all while being powered by different Qualcomm Snapdragon processors.

According to 9to5Google, the Pixel 6 will be the first Google device to be powered by its own processors, codenamed ‘Whitechapel’. 9to5Google found references to this new processor in documents with references to a shared platform codenamed ‘Slider’. This connection has referred to the processor as GS101, with “GS” being short for Google Silicon.

The Slider platform has already tipped the codenames for two upcoming and unannounced devices, codenamed ‘Raven’ and ‘Oriole’. It’s to be believed that these devices are the Pixel 6 and another phone that could be the Pixel 5a 5G. However, the latter would come as a bit of a surprise if it were to launch alongside the Pixel 6, as the Pixel 5a could be announced as soon as Google I/O in May.

The GS101 will be the first of potentially many processors developed by Google, which has been reportedly working with Samsung to produce these upcoming processors. It’s very likely that a new series of processors could debut later this year, starting with the Pixel 6, and potentially being used in the Pixel Fold and unannounced Pixel-branded Chromebooks.
