Samsung again collaborates with Google on 2nd Gen Tensor SoC

Samsung is once again working with Google to create the next 2nd Generation Tensor SoC that will be underpinned in the upcoming Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, as per a report. The upcoming Pixel phones are expected to be launched later this year.

Naver News, citing sources, has reported that Samsung is collaborating with Google to create the Tensor 2 SoC and the South Korean tech giant will begin mass-producing Google’s second-generation Tensor chipset on the 4nm process from June. The Tensor 2 chip will power the Pixel 7 series which is expected to be released in October.

It is to be noted that Samsung Electronics also manufactured the first-generation tensor chip used in the Pixel 6 series. It will also power the Pixel 6a, which will launch in July. The previous Tensor chip was made using a 5nm process, however, the second-generation tensor is said to be made using Samsung’s 4nm approach.

The report also mentions that the chip will be manufactured using panel-level packaging (PLP) technology. “PLP is a packaging technique in which chips cut from a wafer are placed on a rectangular panel. It is possible to minimize the discarded edges, thereby reducing cost and improving productivity,” as per the report.

Samsung has already supplied Google with DRAM and NAND flash components, as well as the chipsets used in Waymo’s autonomous vehicles. The company is also said to be in talks with Google to create chips for additional purposes, such as Google’s own server processors.

As mentioned, the Google Pixel 7 series is going to launch later this year. The smartphones will feature the same display as the previous generation models and run Android 13 out of the box. The smartphones feature a bar-shaped rear camera module made of aluminum. Gizmochina
