As far as we know, Samsung has temporarily abandoned its top-of-the-line Exynos processors. However, this does not mean that the South Korean manufacturer is not working on new CPU technologies internally. Google has used Samsung technology for its first Tensor and Tensor G2 chipsets. Now, it appears that we will see a new chipset in the Pixel 8 series. It will use the South Korean company’s technology and be manufactured on a 4nm lithography process. We have more details below.


The information comes from the publication Business Korea. Samsung currently owns one of the world’s largest CPU manufacturing facilities, second only to TSMC. The South Korean company is about to begin mass production of new chipsets on a 4nm lithography process. However, we will not see these technologies in an Exynos CPU, but rather in a so-called Tensor G3 processor.

It will reach Google Pixel phones in the fall of this year. As far as we know, Android phones will have processors manufactured on 4nm processes, with Apple being the only company to bring 3nm chipsets this year. As for the new Tensor 3 CPU, manufactured by Samsung, the South Korean manufacturer has made great progress in terms of performance and efficiency, achieving a performance rate of 60%. However, compared to TSMC, with its 4nm lithography process, it has a performance rate of 70-80%.

This 4nm processor will be on board the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. However, Google is expected to announce devices such as the Pixel Tablet and Pixel 7A smartphone earlier, with the Tensor G2 CPU. The Galaxy S24 series will receive Qualcomm processors globally next year, but Samsung has expansion plans. It is rumored that both TSMC and the South Korean company will begin producing 4nm CPUs in the US.

TSMC says it hopes to be able to produce 2nm chipsets by 2026. Samsung, on the other hand, believes it can bring such CPUs by the end of 2025.
