Rumors about Google using its own system on chip SoC have been circulating since last year. Today, a report suggests that the tech giant will debut its first SoC code-named Whitechapel, which will power Pixel phones that are scheduled to launch this fall.
Early reports suggested that Whitechapel would be an SoC for phones and Chromebooks and is being developed by Google in partnership with Samsung.
Other code-names mentioned in the report are “GS101,” which could possibly stand for Google Silicon. Another code-name is “Slider,” which is believed to be a common platform for the first Whitechapel SoC. This is linked to several other projects that are believed to be upcoming Pixel flagships due to launch this fall, including the Pixel 6. Google has declined to comment on this report.
