The Tensor G3 is said to stick with Samsung and the same modem

While the Pixel 7 and its Tensor G2 chip have only been available for a month, rumors about the next generation have already surfaced. According to a new report, the “Tensor G3” will stick to the same modem as the Pixel 7 series and will come out of Samsung’s latest chip development.

WinFuture Reports suggest that Google’s next-generation smartphones will use a chipset codenamed “Zuma”.

Unsurprisingly, the chip appears to be an offshoot of the Exynos 2300, which means that Google’s next chip, which is supposed to be called the “Tensor G3”, will be made by Samsung again. Details about Google’s changes with the next-generation Tensor are not known, but Samsung is said to be still actively working on the Exynos 2300 despite clear plans to ditch the chipset in its flagship Galaxy S23 series, which will instead be based on Qualcomm Snapdragon chips.

The same codename “Zuma” was previously reported. Galaxy Club And the Kuba WojciechowskiThe latter claims the chip may have been fabricated using Samsung’s 3nm process. Tensor G2 is built on a 5 nm process.

Another interesting piece of information from this report about the “Tensor G3” is the modem, which will apparently remain unchanged from the Tensor G2. Google is found largely behind the curve with the modem on the original Tensor chip in the Pixel 6, but the modem performance on the Pixel 7 was received much better.

The report also mentions two Google devices codenamed “Shiba” and “Husky”. Both devices are listed with 12GB of RAM with a 2268 x 1080 display on “Shiba” and 2822 x 1344 on “Husky”. Perhaps this specification should be taken with a grain of salt. The listed resolutions are not compatible with any of the previous Google devices and would in fact be a downgrade if the “Husky” was a Pro-tier device.
