At present, the mobile phone chip market pattern has been formed, including Qualcomm, MediaTek, Samsung, the unique Apple A series and Huawei Kirin.
While the chip technology barrier is getting higher and higher, there are still some ambitious manufacturers who want to climb the high ground of technology. There have been recent rumors that Google will develop its own chips, which will be used in its own Pixel models.
On May 6, some foreign developers found traces of Google’s self-developed chips in the Android open source code.
The developer found two keywords Whitechapel and P21 in the Android source code. Among them, Whitechapel is the code name of Google’s self-developed chip, and P21 may be Pixel 2021, which means the model that Google will release this year.
According to the Pixel naming rules, the model that Google will release this year is the Pixel 6, so the P21 may be the Pixel 6. It seems that the Whitechapel chip will be used on the Pixel 6.
Previously, Google employees hinted that Google’s new generation of Pixel phones will use Whitechapel chips, but the specific details of Whitechapel chips are temporarily unknown.
On the other hand, at the Google conference call in 2020, the company’s executives also mentioned that they will make some deeper investments in the hardware direction, and the industry speculates that this is a signal that its self-developed chip Whitechapel will be released.
The Whitechapel chip is Google’s first attempt to develop such hardware, according to an analysis by the US technology review media Android Authority. In the initial stage, Google may encounter a number of research and development difficulties. However, if Google persists in this research and development process, it may give the Pixel series mobile phones a unique technical advantage and bring good news to users.
