Google Tensor Chipset, Everything you Need to Know

Google Tensor Chipset – Google has confirmed that the AI and machine learning (ML) in the future Pixel 6 series phones would be powered by their own custom silicon ARM processor “Tensor”. While Google likes to emphasize software as a distinction for its phones, they do manufacture some of the best Android phones money can buy, and the cameras play a significant part that sets them apart from the other brands.

For years, pixel phones, like every other high-end Android phone have relied on a variety of Snapdragon chips from Qualcomm. But it was rumored that Google was working on their own silicon called the white chapel project, which would eventually be used in the pixel phone.

This didn’t come as a surprise, as other smartphone manufacturing giants have already done this in the past. Apple designs all the chips on their iPhones, Huawei makes the Kiran chips, and Samsung makes Exynos chips. There have even been little bits of customized silicon within Pixel phones before, such as the pixel visual core, pixel neural core, and the Titan M security chip. Now, the company is introducing an entire new SoC.

To recall, the Tensor SoC is the consequence of Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s announcement last year that the company will invest more in hardware. While Google was content to focus on the mid-range category with the Pixel 5 series, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are once again aiming for the high-end segment. With the Pixel 6 set to launch later this year, the tensor chipsets could end up powering all of Google’s phones, an upscaled tensor could power the Chromebooks, a scaled-down version for a pixel watch, smart speaker, and smart display.

Now, although Google has not disclosed its collaboration with Samsung on the chipset, all evidence point to the Tensor SoC being built on Samsung’s Exynos 2100. And it makes sense as previously reported Samsung Exynos 2100 beats the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 in terms of benchmarks.

With the Pixel Visual Core and the Titan M security module, Google has experimented with proprietary hardware in the past. On Pixels, the Titan M security module adds an extra layer of security, and Google plans to keep doing so with the Tensor. However, this could mean longer updates for Pixels, but we will have to wait for the Pixel 6 series to debut in order to confirm this.
