Google Pixel phones are known for their great cameras, and even the design has its fans. But the company tends to deliver phones that can be a hot case, much of which can be attributed to the Tensor chip. Even the Pixel 7 series had the same issues that invariably affected the phone’s battery life.
But this year could be different, as reports suggest the new Tensor G3 chip could do better in those departments thanks to the introduction of the latest hardware. Samsung is the announced manufacturer of the Tensor G3 chipset, likely based on the South Korean brand’s Exynos 2400 SoC.
While there is nothing exciting to know about these details, it is interesting to hear that Samsung Foundry is finally going to introduce FO-WLP (Fan-out wafer level packaging which could work for the Tensor G3 chip. The FO-WLP package is supposed to help improve the hardware efficiency and also to improve graphics performance. But most importantly, Pixel phones could finally become reliable thanks to battery life.
Other chip giants Qualcomm and MediaTek have already used this technology to make their chips, and Samsung could finally join the ranks, which will not only please Google but also consumers. Samsung’s Exynos chips have had a mixed track record, forcing the company to eventually switch to Qualcomm chips in its flagship phones. So we’re hoping that the rumored Exynos 2400-based Tensor G3 chip can top the previous iterations.
The new Pixel 8 series will be released on the 4th. October, and the new phones are expected to be powered by the Tensor G3 chipset, which could give us a big boost in performance and efficiency.
The company will also launch the new Pixel 8 phones in India on October 5 along with the Pixel Watch 2 this year. We’re curious to see if the Pixel phones can finally match other flagship phones in terms of performance and battery life.
