For the formerly, Google published its own equipment for years under the name Nexus.

A 25 euro expensive polishing cloth with exclusive compatibility with manufacturer s own devices, Google remained guilty, but the search engine Gigant now also relies on a specially developed and produced chip, more precisely a SOC (system on a chip), the processor, Graphic unit, memory and other components combines – just like just Apple.
