HTC is thinking about developing its own chips for smartphones reports the China Times on Monday. The Taiwanese company has signed a memorandum of cooperation and Unwired View suggests that ST-Ericsson will build the chips. For the past several years, HTC has relied up on Qualcomm to supply chips for HTC handsets and has recently turned to Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 chip for non-U.S. versions of the new HTC One X handset. This wouldn't be the first time HTC has developed a chip; its new HTC One line uses custom silicon for image capture.
