Samsung 將為 Google 生產感測晶片

Google Wearable Device

韓國媒體 ETnews 報道,Samsung 承接了來自 Google 的晶片生產訂單。報道指訂單包含不同功能的晶片,當中一款是用於測量人體移動的感應晶片。

Samsung Electronics also obtained an order from Google regarding manufacturing of more than one chip. It is heard that Google requested a semiconductor that will go into a sensor that can measure body movements rather than for processors that go into current IT devices and an unprecedented application processor

消息指感應晶片會用於行動裝置上的感應器,估計未必是用於智能電話,而是用於穿戴裝置上。Google 之前已提出收購穿戴裝置生產商 Fitbit,雖然歐盟已經介入並啟動反壟斷調查,但可見 Google 想直接投入生產自家的穿戴裝置。今次生產感測晶片應該是為推出自家穿戴裝置準備,至於是用於運動手帶還是期待已久的Pixel Watch 手表就未清楚。
