Google wants to design its own chips for Android phones: Report

SAN FRANCISCO: Take a page from Apple, Google reportedly is working on having its own designs for chipsets used in Android phones.


According to a report from the Information, Google is in talks with some chip makers to develop chipsets based on the company’s preferred designs.

The new move seems to have been pushed by the company’s strategy to bring more uniformity to its otherwise fragmented Android space.

Google’s desire to co-develop chips for Android phones is similar to the practice that Apple has been doing for years.

The Cupertino-based tech giant designs its Ax chips for its iPhones, but they are manufactured by other companies such as Samsung.
