The Long-Awaited Tensor G3 Processor from Google

By Mahnoor Mushtaq - Nov 9, 2022

Tensor G2 was the chipset used by Google to introduce the Pixel 7 line. Even though the phones have only been available for a month, online rumors regarding the upcoming model have already begun to circulate. We stated in August that Samsung would use its 3nm process to produce Google's third-generation Tensor chip. The most recent rumors point to some significant developments following that article. According to WinFuture, Google's upcoming smartphones will use a processor with the codename "Zuma."

Unsurprisingly, the chip appears to be an extension of the Exynos 2300, indicating that Samsung will once more produce Google's upcoming chip, which is likely to be branded "Tensor G3." Although it appears that Samsung will no longer be using the Exynos 2300 in its top Galaxy S23 series, which will instead use Qualcomm Snapdragon CPUs, specifics on Google's upgrades with the new generation of Tensor remain unknown. GalaxyClub and Kuba Wojciechowski have previously reported on the "Zuma" codename, suggesting the chip would be made using Samsung's 3nm technology. The 5nm technique is used to create Tensor G2.


The modem, which will reportedly not change from Tensor G2, is another intriguing detail from this rumor concerning "Tensor G3." The modem on Google's initial Tensor processor in the Pixel 6 was found to be much behind the times. However, the modem performance of the Pixel 7 has been praised greatly.

Two Google devices with the codenames "Shiba" and "Husky" are also mentioned in the report. Both devices have 12GB of RAM and display 2268 x 1080 on the Shiba and 2822 x 1344 on the Husky. These specifications should probably be treated with caution. If "Husky" were to be a Pro-tier smartphone, the resolutions stated would be a decrease from any of Google's earlier products. Because none of the display resolutions indicated here is compatible with any previous Pixel devices, all of this information should be regarded with a grain of salt. In reality, if "Husky" is a Pro model device, it would constitute a downgrade.
