Google Pixel 9 is likely to utilize Samsung’s 4nm chipset

Samsung’s foundry (semiconductor outsourcing) is expected to gain momentum in securing micro-process customers thanks to the accolades received by the Exynos featured in the Galaxy S24. It’s projected that Google will apply Samsung’s foundry 4-nanometer micro-process to the Tensor G4 chipset featured in their in-house smartphone brand ‘Pixel 9’, set to launch in the latter half of this year. With recent discussions between leading tech giants and Samsung Electronics, this year is seen as a turning point.

Google Eyeing Samsung Foundry for Next-Gen Phone Chip

According to a foreign media source on the 6th, it’s likely that Google will adopt Samsung Electronics’ 4-nanometer micro-process for the next-generation Tensor G4 processor. While Google incorporated the Tensor G3 processor into the Pixel 8 last year, it was deemed one generation behind in performance compared to major competitors such as Qualcomm and Apple.

Tensor G4 is expected to leverage Samsung Electronics’ latest 4-nanometer micro-process technology and advanced packaging technology known as FOWLP (Fan-Out Wafer-Level Packaging). With the potential to improve chip heat dissipation and enhance power efficiency and performance, it’s anticipated to surpass products released last year.

Google’s decision to adopt Samsung Electronics’ 4-nanometer micro-process is attributed to the positive reception of the Exynos 2400 featured in some models of the Galaxy S24 series.

Samsung Electronics is known to have formed a dedicated team internally to optimize the next-generation Exynos chip. Especially, it’s reported that the upcoming flagship Exynos chip will utilize Samsung Electronics Foundry’s second-generation 3nm (nanometer) manufacturing process.
