Samsung 将为 Google 生产传感芯片

Google Wearable Device

韩国媒体 ETnews 报道,Samsung 承接了来自 Google 的芯片生产订单。报道指订单包含不同功能的芯片,当中一款是用于测量人体移动的感应芯片。

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

消息指感应芯片会用于行动装置上的感应器,估计未必是用于智能电话,而是用于穿戴装置上。Google 之前已提出收购穿戴装置生产商 Fitbit,虽然欧盟已经介入并启动反垄断调查,但可见 Google 想直接投入生产自家的穿戴装置。今次生产传感芯片应该是为推出自家穿戴装置准备,至于是用于运动手带还是期待已久的Pixel Watch 手表就未清楚。
