Google is actively working on a proprietary processor

Google executives thought that to facilitate competition with Samsung and Apple, they needed to create their own processor and use it in branded smartphones and laptops. This will allow in the future to cease to depend on Qualcomm chip maker and switch to full self-sufficiency.
According to the Axios publication, the first results of work in this direction can already be estimated. With the assistance of former Intel and Apple experts and in close collaboration with Samsung, the first Whitechapel chipset was developed. It is built on a 5-nanometer process technology and optimized for proprietary machine learning algorithms. In addition, special attention was paid to improving the speed and efficiency of the Google Assistant application.
It is expected that Google will need about a year to bring the chips to mind and begin their mass production.
