Future Pixels might use Google’s own processors

Just about everyone would love for Google to design their own chips for the Pixels. Qualcomm’s Snapdragons are great and all, but they only offer max 2-3 years of support and still fall short of the speeds of Apple’s processors. However, according to Variety, Google has just hired Manu Gulati, a key Apple chip architect, to build custom chips for the Pixels.

Gulati has just recently updated his LinkedIn page with his new title—Lead SoC Architect at Google.

I doubt this year’s Pixels will feature a custom chip, however, if that’s what you’re wondering. But chances are definitely high for the Pixel 3 and so on.

Combining Google’s own hardware with their first ever own SoC would make for a true “Made by Google” experience.
