Google’s Tensor chip is custom custom-designed system-on-a-chip (SoC) that was first introduced in the Pixel 6 series and the chip is designed to optimize performance for AI-powered features, such as photography, translation, and voice recognition.
According to a new report from the Korean business newspaper (Maeil), the Tensor G4 chip is considered as “Zuma Pro” and will be manufactured on Samsung’s 4nm third-generation SF4P process with improved power efficiency. This is the same process that Samsung is using for its own Exynos 2400 chip.
The Tensor G4 is expected to power the Pixel 9 series, which is expected to launch in late 2023. That is one of the reasons why Google sticking with Samsung because of its position in the world’s leading high-performance chip makers.
Finally, Samsung is able to offer Google a competitive price for its chips. This is important for Google, as it wants to keep the cost of its Pixel Smartphones down. With this Tensor G4 is also expected to come with improved AI features, thanks to its new CPU and TPU. This means that the Pixel 9 series is likely to be even better at things like photography, translation, and other voice recognition stuff
