This year, Google has not presented the public with a truly flagship smartphone. Pixel 5 is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G platform, which is used in mid-budget devices. It is assumed that the company took such a step in an attempt to save money, because it was not sure about the sufficient popularity of new smartphones. According to new rumors, Google will return to the premium device market as early as next March.
The source of this information was the authoritative insider Max Winebach, whose reputation is not in doubt, but he advises to take it with a grain of salt. Weinbach doubts the veracity of the rumor, but the fact that he heard this from two different sources raises questions about the veracity of the information. This is also at odds with Google’s usual strategy of launching flagship models towards the end of the year, while affordable smartphones usually come out in the first half of the year.
Whenever the Pixel 6 comes out, there is reason to believe that this device will run on Google’s first proprietary processor. Earlier, information appeared on the Web that the company has developed a chipset that will be manufactured according to Samsung’s 5nm process technology. In addition, it was reported that back in August, the company received the first trial batch of these chips.
By the way, there were earlier rumors that other manufacturers will release their flagships earlier than usual next year. So, Samsung will allegedly introduce the Galaxy S21 series in January, instead of the traditional February, and OnePlus will postpone the announcement of the flagship OnePlus 9 to March or April, together with May.
