Third-generation Google Tensor technology is allegedly being developed at Samsung.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro marked Google Tensor’s pretty impressive premiere, but it was obvious there was still much potential for development. While Tensor 2 will be released for the Pixel 7 series in a few months, Samsung is reportedly already working on the third version of Tensor.

The folks at GalaxyClub have heard rumors that Samsung is now working with Google on the third-generation Tensor chipset in early testing and development. Here is what is now being asserted, albeit it is information that should undoubtedly be treated with caution.

This rumor claims that Google is testing the third version of Tensor under the Ripcurrent development board. Tensor 2 is being developed under Cloudripper, as we previously mentioned. According to reports, the third-generation Tensor chip has the model number S5P9865, which is typical of Tensor processors. Tensor 2 is believed to be S5P9855, while Tensor 1 has the model number S5P9845.

Although nothing about this is particularly surprising, it is noteworthy that Google will continue to work with Samsung at least through the third generation of its own processor. When digging deeper into the chip, it became clear that Samsung’s work with Exynos processors played a significant role in the development of the original Tensor chip. One of the few partners Google presently has to work on Tensor is Samsung, but it would be intriguing to see Google team up with companies like MediaTek or, almost impossible, Qualcomm to enhance Tensor’s capabilities.

Unfortunately, we are unsure of the advancements that Tensor’s third generation will make. However, it is evident that Google has a lot of work to do.

Both the numerous heat-related problems and the fact that the first Tensor chip’s connection performance lagged well behind Qualcomm’s most recent and finest were problematic. Additionally, efficiency could definitely use an improvement. Tensor is well behind that endeavor, but the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in devices like the OnePlus 10T and Galaxy Z Flip 4 is a brilliant example of what an efficient CPU can do for smartphones. By the third generation, Google should be able to close the gap and provide a similar Tensor experience to Samsung and others who use Qualcomm Snapdragon.

Around the end of 2023, the Pixel 8 series would most likely introduce the third generation of Google Tensor.
