Rumor has it that Google will equip the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro with a custom processor it’s making in collaboration with Samsung. So for all purposes, the new Pixels are expected to ditch Qualcomm’s SoCs for a Google chip codenamed “Whitechapel.” Now, some details about the mysterious silicon have appeared thanks to frequent tipster Max Weinbach and lesser-known leaker Yogesh.
Elaborating on the information, Yogesh took to Twitter to reveal that Whitechapel’s current performance is equivalent to the Snapdragon 870, which itself is an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 865 Plus.
Yogesh also claimed that Google isn’t trying to match the Snapdragon 888. Instead, the company is focussing on perfecting Machine Learning and AI processes, something that’s right up its alley.
Since Google doesn’t have an in-house mobile graphics division, the tipster says that Whitechapel will use a Mali GPU. Unfortunately, there are no additional details available about it.

He said that the standard model will feature a Full HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Meanwhile, the Pro is expected to feature a QHD+ screen with the same high refresh rate, a first for any Pixel phone. The larger model may also come with a 5,000mAh battery.
