    Google’s Tensor G3 could be a custom version of Exynos 2300, made by Samsung

    Google launched the Pixel 7 series with the Tensor G2 chipset. While it has been only a month since the phones were out, rumors about the next generation have already started floating on the internet. In August, we reported that Samsung would make Google's third-generation Tensor chip using its 3nm process. In line with that report, the latest rumors hint at some exciting developments.

    Apparently, the upcoming Tensor G3 processor will power next year's Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro smartphones. Google will stick with the Exynos 5300G modem developed by Samsung's System LSI arm, the same unit found in the Pixel 7 series. WinFuture notes that Google's next-generation smartphones will be powered by a chipset that is codenamed “Zuma.”

    It has been rumored that Samsung is working on the Exynos 2300. And by the looks of it, the Zuma chip could be the speculated Tensor G3, and it could be a custom version of the Exynos 2300. Of course, it could add Google's optimizations for machine learning and AI. Samsung is still actively working on the Exynos 2300, and that chipset could still appear in the Galaxy in some regions.

    The report also mentions the codenames of two Google devices: Husky and Shiba. Both devices are said to feature 12GB of RAM. The display on “Shiba” reportedly has Full-HD resolution (2,268 x 1,080 pixels), while the one on “Husky” would be QHD+ (2,822 x 1,344 pixels). So, the Shiba could be the Pixel 8, and the Husky could be the Pixel 8 Pro.

    All this information should be taken with a grain of salt because none of the display resolutions mentioned here match any prior Pixel devices. In fact, it would be a downgrade if “Husky” is a Pro model device.

    The Galaxy experience can be messy for first-time users

    Some say it's always better to have more options, but it's never as clear-cut as it sounds. This design philosophy doesn't always work, and more importantly, it isn't a magical shortcut that can patch everything up and always lead to a better user experience. On the contrary, if not handled properly, I believe the “more […]
