Google’s own Tensor chip could just be renamed Exynos processor

Google recently announced the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones, which will feature Google’s own Tensor processor. And now new interesting details became known about him.

Recently, the media reported that Google is developing a new SoC together with Samsung engineers. It is also planned to be produced at the factories of the Korean corporation.

According to new information, Tensor may turn out to be an unreleased Exynos processor, only with a different name. The fact is that its codename is Whitechapel, and the same name is for the Exynos 9855, which Samsung has been working on for over a year.

Google’s chip is expected to be somewhere in the middle between the Exynos 2100 and the upcoming Exynos 2200 – chips that are prepared for the flagship Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S22 families. This fits perfectly with the release schedules of these three lines – Exynos 2100 in early 2021, Tensor in late 2021, Exynos 2200 in early 2022.

It looks like Google and Samsung have worked together to develop it from the start, but Samsung has made a much more important contribution.
