On Monday, Google announced that it had signed a $200-million deal with Qualcomm to make the company’s Semaphore chip for smartphones.
The chip will help power Google’s latest Android phones, the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Pixel phones, which were launched in early 2017.
However, Google has also confirmed that its Semaphores will soon become obsolete in the coming months.
Google has already shuttered the company, saying that the chip is obsolete, and that it was “too difficult” to develop.
It is not the first time that Google has stopped production of its own semaphoring technology.
Earlier this year, the company stopped making its own chips, as well.
According to Google, the Semaphones were designed to run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820, which was introduced in 2018.
Google also has been rumored to be working on a new chip for Android phones.
The company said it will work with partners and suppliers to bring its next-generation chips to market.
Google’s new Semaphone chip will run on the Snapdragon 821 chipset, which is currently the most popular chip for phones.
Qualcomm’s chip is expected to make up a large chunk of the smartphone market in the years ahead.
Qualcomm has announced that the chips used in its Snapdragon 820 and 821 will be supported by Android in the future.
