Google Pixel 7 Series to Use Samsung-Made 2nd Generation Tensor SoC: Report

Samsung will make the second generation Google Tensor SoC that will be used in the Google Pixel 7 series of smartphones, according to a report. The series, which is expected to get the Pixel 7 in addition to the Pixel 7 Pro smartphones, was shown at this year’s Google I/O event and is set to launch later this year. It should be noted that the latest generation of Google smartphones uses the first generation Google Tensor SoC, which is also manufactured by Samsung.

According to a daily report from the Korean publisher, Samsung will mass-produce the second generation Google Tensor SoC, which will be used on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones, starting in June. Google phones are expected to be launched in October. Furthermore, the report claims that the next generation of SoC will be manufactured using a 4nm process. The current generation of SoC in the Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, and Pixel 6a is made on a 5nm process.

It has been reported that Samsung is using Panel Level Packet (PLP) technology to manufacture the second generation Google Tensor SoC. It is a technology in which the chips cut from the wafer are placed on a rectangular plate, thus reducing the discarded edge, reducing cost and improving productivity. According to a report in February, the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are said to be powered by the Google Tensor GS201 SoC, which could be accompanied by the new Samsung Exynos 5300 modem whose details the South Korean company has not revealed.

As mentioned, the Google Pixel 7 series was teased at the main Google I/O event. Google said that the smartphones will run on Android 13 out of the box, and will feature the next generation Tensor SoC. The company also showed off the smartphone design, which shows the rear camera module in the form of a strip, which will be made of aluminum, rather than glass as on the current Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro models.
