Everything indicates that the Google Pixel 6 will be announced in the second half of 2021. The main attribute of the model should not be a new set of cameras or some innovation on Android, but the presence of Whitechapel, a code name for a processor developed by Google itself.
According to 9to5Google, the Pixel phones that the Mountain View company will present at its Made by Google event will incorporate a new processor dubbed Whitechapel, which bears the code name ” GS101 “, which refers to “Google Silicon”.
The report points out that Google’s intention is to use its own chips in its Pixel phones and also in its Chromebooks, just as Apple does with its iPhone, iPad, and MacBook. Rumors also claim that the new Whitechapel processors are being developed in collaboration with Samsung, who is responsible for making the Exynos processors for Samsung Galaxy phones.
Right now there is no other information on the subject, especially the technical side, but this bodes well and confirms the will of Google to get more serious with the Pixels, always having Apple’s iPhones in focus; we hope that he will work on other aspects as well, perhaps starting with the photographic one.
Recall that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processors used in the latest Google phones, the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G, gave a lot to talk about because they were not the most powerful processors on the market, but nevertheless, they offer balanced performance for the majority of users.
We only have to wait for the third quarter of 2021 to see what Google has been preparing in its hardware division to give life to its new Pixel 6. We just hope that this processor is not a failure, as was Xiaomi’s Surge S1.
