Pixel 6 is rumoured to be within the works and is predicted to launch someday later this yr. It’s reported the flagship would include the in-house Google-made chipset codenamed, Whitechapel. Now, a recent report by XDA Builders reiterates the identical with new proof. In a screenshot, the ‘Whitechapel’ textual content talked about by the Google engineers in a code change submitted to AOSP could be clearly seen within the URL. There’s additionally a point out of P21 within the line “You don’t want coredomain to make use of binder_use. This one lives advantageous on P21,” which may very well be referring to the Pixel 6. P21 can’t be the Pixel 5a as it’s anticipated to function the Snapdragon 765G SoC.
Moreover, within the URL, Whitechapel refers to Google’s chipset whereas the ‘GS101’ might stand for Google Silicon. Google is reportedly engaged on the Whitechapel chip in affiliation with Samsung’s system large-scale integration (SLSI) division. Contemplating that SLSI is liable for Exynos chipset, speculations are rife that Google’s first in-house chipset might have widespread options with Samsung Exynos. Earlier studies have indicated that Whitechapel may very well be a 5nm octa-core ARM chipset with two Cortext-A78 CPU cores and quad Cortex-A55 cores and ARM Mali GPU. The efficiency of the chipset is claimed to be on comparable strains because the Snapdragon 7-series.

Sadly, that’s just about all the pieces we all know thus far about Google’s Whitechapel chip. It ought to give the Mountain View large sufficient management over driver replace because it now not might want to depend on Qualcomm and the drivers needs to be suitable with newer Android OS variations for an extended time. Pixel units at present obtain 3 years of Android OS upgrades however with its personal chipsets, Google may provide not less than 4 main OS upgrades, however that is simply hypothesis.
