According to a report from GalaxyClub , Google and Samsung are already working on a third-generation Tensor SoC that will power next year’s Pixel 8 series. On the one hand, it’s not surprising that Google and Samsung will continue to form joint ventures, but on the other hand, this isn’t the first time Google has killed a project or two.
After all, the first-generation Tensor chipsets are not exactly in line with the competition from Qualcomm and Apple. However, things may change in the future. However, the advantage of Tensor is that Google is free to customize the SoC according to its own needs. For example, its camera AI capabilities are impressive and allow the Pixel 6 to offer some advanced features.
The same report also says Samsung is working on a successor to Exynos 1280 – a mid-range chip used in some of the company’s budget products .
Unfortunately, the leak doesn’t go into detail, so except for Tensor 3’s S5P22 model and the fact that it is being tested on a development board codenamed “Ripcurrent”, there is nothing else we can use.
