Google self-developed Whitechapel chip on Pixel 6 was manufactured by Samsung 5nm process

Recently, Google’s new generation of mobile phones continues to have new news. The renderings of Google Pixel 6 Pro have been exposed a few days ago, and the appearance has been roughly understood, however, there is not much news about its internal core accessories. Google will return a new generation of products to the flagship position.

According to Wccftech reports, the Google Pixel 6 series will use Google’s self-developed chip called Whitechapel for the first time. In fact, about two months ago, there has been news that Google is developing a self-developed SoC based on the Arm architecture, code-named GS101. “GS” is probably the first letter of Google Silicon, and Whitechapel is just another name for GS101. The CPU part will adopt a three-core design, consisting of two Cortex-A78, two Cortex-A76, and four Cortex-A55, with an improved Mali GPU, and a TPU for AI computing integrated Titan M security chip.

It is understood that Whitechapel will be manufactured using Samsung’s 5nm process, and its performance will be between Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 865. Google does not seem to plan to directly compare performance with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and will focus on other places, such as customized TPU and ISP, to obtain better AI performance and camera effects.

In addition, Wccftech said that the Pixel 6 Pro will be equipped with a 5000mAh battery, the regular camera is 50MP, and the periscope zoom lens is 8MP, which supports 5x optical zoom. The screen is a 6.67-inch OLED with a 120Hz refresh rate, but it is not yet certain whether LTPO OLED will be used. The Pixel 6 has a 6.4-inch screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and a smaller battery.  In addition to the orange + black + white color scheme exposed in the current rendering, the Google Pixel 6 series may also have other colors, such as green + black + silver.

Google originally planned to release a new series of products in October this year, but due to serious shortages in the semiconductor industry, it is likely to be forced to postpone it to November.
