Google will launch an mid-range smartphone with AI: report
The Google is preparing a mid-range device that would be released in early 2019 and that would incorporate the new chip dedicated to the Artificial Intelligence thewill be presented with great probability this year after the summer, and although they will surely have the best processors of the season, a new report says that
This processor released last month was designed for mid-range phones to incorporate features related to Artificial Intelligence in a way similar to that allowed by chips dedicated to more expensive high-end phones.
A report by Roland Quandt from WinFuture ensures that Google is working on its first phone with this chip, which would be released in the first half of 2019. Although the report refers to a “mobile device” and does not to a phone as such, sites like 9to5Google consider that it would certainly be a smartphone.
Reports about the possibility of Google launching a phone cheaper than the current Pixel came in January , when 9to5Google announced the plans. Since then some statements of spokespersons of the company have hinted that the device might not belong to the Pixel line, which would be maintained with premium phones.
Although other reports indicate that it will be a Pixel phone, the fact is that being a cheaper device could include Android One, a variation of Google’s operating system for cheap phones with less powerful features that guarantees good performance of the devices and that is updated as fast as the Pixels.
The same sources ensure that this new economical phone might not be sold in the United States, and that it would be reserved for emerging markets.
