Google Whitechapel successor might use AMD graphics tech

Google Whitechapel successor might use AMD graphics tech

One of the news that fans of Google's Pixel phones are looking forward to is the company's long-rumored self-designed processor. After Apple launched its M1 Silicon to many accolades, it seems only natural to suspect Google won't be far behind. That might come in the form of "Whitechapel," a.k.a. the GS101 (Google Silicon), which is already proving to be a mixed bag according to leaks. Those disappointed by rumors of the chip's performance might want to look forward to the future instead, with a Google chip combining Samsung's and AMD's technologies.

Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 XL names accidentally confirmed by Google

Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 XL names accidentally confirmed by Google

What's in a name? Depending on the context, it could mean the world, or it could mean nothing. A number denoting the generation or model of a smartphone can be critical, but, depending on how it's used, a "Pro" and an "XL" could mean the same thing anyway. That is the dichotomy that fans of Google's Pixel phones now find themselves in after the company itself accidentally revealed that the larger and potentially better-equipped Pixel 6 could be called the Pixel 6 XL after all.

Pixel 5a launch might actually happen in a few weeks

There have been quite a number of notable Android phones launched in the past few months but, for some Android purists, nothing still beats a Google Pixel. The company's direction has admittedly been a bit perplexing in the past year or two, and nothing exemplifies that more than the Pixel 5a. Google may actually still launch the phone just as it said, and, based on a new report, that might even happen in less than two months.

Google Pixel 6 leak confirms weird new direction

The Google Pixel 6 represents a whole new direction for the industrial design of the Google Pixel line.

With the leaks we're seeing now, it's clear that the Google Pixel 6 will take the Google smartphone experience out a whole new door.

Here’s what the first Google Store is like on the inside

The first Google Store is almost open, and if you can't make it to New York City to check out the new brick & mortar shop, a virtual walk-around is the next best thing.

Pixel 6 case leak reveals a headache for accessory makers

Pixel 6 case leak reveals a headache for accessory makers

Aside from the very first Pixel phone, Google's smartphones haven't really been notable for their designs. People talk about them a lot, that's for sure, but not always in a positive light. Google seems always to play up the shock factor and the Pixel 6 won't be so different. It might actually appeal better to people's aesthetics this time around, but case and accessory makers will have one hell of a time designing around that unorthodox camera bump.

Pixel 6 Pixel Stand might come with fans and faster charging

Pixel 6 Pixel Stand might come with fans and faster charging

Wireless charging may seem magical, but it doesn't come without its drawbacks. In addition to near-perfect placement, it also can't compete with wired charging speeds. Faster wireless charging requires greater power output which, in turn, produces more heat than your typical wired charger. Safeguards need to be in place to support faster wireless charging and, if this latest discovery comes to pass soon, the Pixel 6 will be accompanied by a faster Pixel Stand wireless charger that has exactly that.
