The Pixel 7 series and the Pixel Watch are anticipated to be introduced during Google's upcoming launch event on October 6. The company has confirmed the colour variations and new Tensor chips for the Pixel 7 series, meanwhile, before the official unveiling. Speaking of the new chipset, the Search Engine giant has verified the name of the second generation Tensor chip that will power its flagship Pixel 7 series. The Tensor G2 is the name of the new SoC. The next-generation chipset will be based on Samsung's 4nm-based technology, in contrast to the original Google Tensor's 8 cores and 5nm-based design.
For those who are unaware, Samsung also worked in the development of the first-generation Tensor processor. The 5nm chipset had a Mali G78 MP20 GPU and 8 cores. As a result of the partnership, Google created a smartphone chip that will make use of its artificial intelligence. According to official claims, the Tensor G2 will debut alongside the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro and boost speech recognition, security, and image and video processing. It's also feasible that the Pixel 7a model, which is comparable to the Pixel 6a from the previous generation, would run on the same chipset.
