Google hired a key developer of mobile SoC Apple
Google has hired Manu Gulati (Gulati Manu), a key developer of single-chip systems used in mobile devices Apple. According to the source, in Google he will also lead the development of single-chip systems. It can be assumed that Google is planning to create its own SoCs for smartphones Pixel.
Now Google, like many other smartphone manufacturers, uses Qualcomm SoC. However, large participants in the market — Samsung, Apple, Huawei — a SoC of its own design. In their output the creation of its own SoC becomes justified. Probably, Google expects to increase market share owned by the device Pixel. If you own a single-chip system will be able to provide Google an edge over the competition, such a scenario is very real.
