With a sudden movement, and after several months of undisciplined rumors and frivolous thoughts, google Officially announced the news that the following smartphones Pixel 6 NS Pixel 6 Pro Coming in the fall will depend on tensor, the new SoC It was designed in-house by Google itself. After years of cooperation with QualcommTherefore, Google did not like An apple Choosing to accommodate the development of smartphone processors.
It did so by relying on a partner, Samsung, who owns the “foundries” needed to produce the chips. Although Google has released very few details about Tensor, many believe that its technical basis isExynos 2100 on Samsung. According to this hypothesis, then, Google Tensor will be no more than the Exynos 2100 intended for Pixel phones.
Tensor: Google Ads
Of course, at the moment there is little that Google has announced: Tensor is a file order on chip Which took four years of development, which Samsung will produce with 5 nm production process Which will have high processing capabilities of algorithms Artificial intelligence NS machine learning.
This power, according to Google, will be used primarily in computational photography This is all those accounts used to improve photos and videos. To users, Big G explains, “This means completely new features, as well as improving existing onesOne example is the ability to apply real-time HDR to every frame in a 4K video snapshot.
Another very important aspect that Google has focused on with Tensor is security: the new SoC actually integrates Titan M2The second generation of the proprietary processor Titan Pixel phones store encryption keys that are used to encrypt user data. With Titan M2 i Pixel 6″They will have more security levels than any other phone“.
Google Tensor: how it’s done
That’s what Google says today about Tensor, very little. The rest is the result of hypotheses, however credible they may be. If it’s true that Tensor is a custom Exynos 2100, for example, that means it’s incorporating an internal core ARM Cortex-X1 High performance, three fast cores ARM Cortex-A78 And four high-efficiency cores Cortex-A55. And so is the Exynos 2100, and so could Tensor too.
If this hypothesis is proven to be true, then Google Tensor will be performance Only slightly less than the current top-of-the-range Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 888. To this high power, then, Google’s massive capacity must be added to the Program improvement To take full advantage of the port processor. As a result, the result can also be a higher performance level than other smartphone chipsets.
Each, however, with low consumption Thanks to Samsung’s 5nm production process, which is already used to produce the Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 780G.
Pixel 6 e Pixel 6 Pro
Google claimed that Tensor will be one except From the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones, so Big G has no plans to sell chips to other smartphone makers. On the other hand, Tensor will be used by Google to continue following the path taken in 2016 with first pixelShow the world what Android can do with one cool hardware refined optimization.
Unlike the Pixel 4 and Pixel 5, the Pixel 6 will once again be a smartphone above the range Very high performance. This, however, would also mean that it would be very expensive: It’s reasonable to expect prices starting, at least for the Pro version, in excess of $1,000.
Finally, there is a great doubt to be resolved as to what a file markets Where will the Pixel 6 arrive, and thus the Tensor as well. Pixel 5 has already been sold in a few markets, including There is no ItalyIt appears that Google will continue this policy. Right now, in fact, the Pixel 6 purchase page has only appeared in very few Google online stores.
At the moment, this page is only on Google’s Stores CanadaAnd AustraliaAnd United kingdomAnd FranceAnd GermanyAnd Japan NS Taiwan. But there is a little yellow: for a few hours a reference to the Pixel 6 also appeared on the Italian online store Google, but with English writing “Coming this fall“After a while that signal disappeared.
