Here’s something we haven’t heard about. Apparently, the geniuses at Google are working on a Google-branded processor and GPU, perhaps to create some unity in Android devices. Rumor has it that this processor will be shown off in the next Nexus device. While this is sudden, it does make a lot of sense from Google’s perspective. They want to be able to truly rival other devices (like the iPhone) by creating their own line of processors, instead of having every Android device use a different brand. The term “processor fragmentation” doesn’t exactly describe it, but you get the idea.
Of course, this is all speculation until we hear from Google, who hasn’t responded to any questions. More on this as it develops.
We're giving stuff away to help celebrate our tenth anniversary. Are you in?
So what do you think? Could Google really be working on their own processor and GPU? Let us know in the comments!
EDITOR NOTE: THIS IS AN UNCONFIRMED RUMOR AND SHOULD BE HANDLED AS SUCH. ANDROID INVASION IS NOT A SITE WE HAD ON OUR RADAR AND WE’LL ADMIT THAT THIS SEEMS A LITTLE OUT-OF-LEFT-FIELD.
