The Google Pixel 6 series is highly anticipated. Not only is Google revamping the design this year, but the new phones will also be powered by Google’s own processor which is dubbed Google Tensor. New details of the processor have leaked and they reveal an interesting detail.
Just like this year’s flagship chipsets from Qualcomm and Samsung i.e. the Snapdragon 888/Snapdragon 888+ and the Exynos 2100, a leak by the Chinese leaker, Digital Chat Station, has revealed that the Tensor processor will also feature Arm’s Cortex-A1 CPU core.
However, it won’t have one but two of these cores. The info was revealed in a Weibo post.
The leaker revealed the processor will have the two Cortex-X1 cores clocked at 2.8GHz along with two high-performance cores clocked at 2.25GHz and four efficiency cores clocked at 1.8GHz. The CPU is paired with the Mali-G78 GPU whose clockspeed wasn’t revealed.
An earlier report disclosed that the Google Tensor chip will be built on Samsung’s 5nm node. The processor will bring key improvements in AI tasks such as translation, captioning, and dictation.
Google has also revealed that the phones will feature the most layers of hardware security in any phone.
The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will have displays with a punch hole for the front-facing camera. The former will have two rear cameras while the pro model will have three rear cameras that include one with a telephoto lens that provides 4x optical zoom.
Google is yet to announce a date for the release of the phones but multiple sources point to an October release date.
