In a significant move, the company has now hired a Lead SoC Architect who most recently led Apple's silicon development.

Google hiring Apple's veteran chip architect away from the company indicates their gameplan for the future and the future of the Pixel lineup.

Apple began using its own chips in 2010 under Gulati's guidance. Qualcomm now supplies its Snapdragon processor for Google's Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones.

It's no secret that Apple's A series chips are exceptional performers.

Just like the Pixel phones, Google's chip (s) will be designed how they want and how it should work with Android. The Pixel devices may not be the best performing devices in the Android world in every metric, but they stood their ground against the competition of their time. Manu Gulati, an Apple micro-architect who worked on the company's chip development for almost eight years, has just joined Google, announcing the hire today on his Linkedin profile.

Google "is now looking to build its own chips for future versions of its flagship Pixel phone", according to Variety, which cited unnamed sources said to be familiar with the matter.

"The Cupertino-based computer maker filed a total of 15 chip-related patents that credit Gulati as one of the inventors".

We've reached out to Google for comment and will let you know if it can elaborate on the hire.
