Google teases the Pixel 7’s next-gen Tensor chipset – Review Geek
Instead of keeping tight lips, Google is already teasing the Pixel 7 smartphone’s Tensor G2 chipset. This next-gen processor will bring even more power to AI-enabled customization features, including voice recognition, according to Google.
You can see the teaser yourself on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 XL product page. The new smartphones were first showcased at Google’s I/O conference, and are scheduled to launch during (or after) the “Made By Google” event on October 6.
The name “Tensor G2” is probably short for “Second Generation Tensor”, which is interesting. Previous leaks pointed to a much more boring name, like “Tensor 2” or “GS201”. Of course, there’s no reason to be concerned about the name – we’re just glad to see Google continuing on this path.
At launch, the Tensor G2 Most likely to be a Pixel 7 exclusive. We expect Google to use the original Tensor chipset in its Pixel tablet, which is also expected to appear at the “Made By Google” event. (The Pixel Watch uses a Samsung Exynos processor, which makes sense, since Tensor isn’t intended for wearables.)
Details on the Tensor G2 are slim, although Google notes that AI processing will get a nice boost. In terms of processing power, the Tensor G2 is Most likely comparable to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 – we’re only speculating, so don’t take our word for it.
