Google following Apple in designing its own smartphone chips. Remains to be seen what that really means here. But, Pixel still has minimal distribution and share - Google hasn’t decided whether it really wants to compete with its OEMs https://t.co/veOEvoqjCL— Benedict Evans (@benedictevans) August 2, 2021
So excited to share our new custom Google Tensor chip, which has been 4 yrs in the making (📎 for scale)! Tensor builds off of our 2 decades of computing experience and it’s our biggest innovation in Pixel to date. Will be on Pixel 6 + Pixel 6 Pro in fall. https://t.co/N95X6gFxLf pic.twitter.com/wHiEJRHJwy— Sundar Pichai (@sundarpichai) August 2, 2021
The Pixel 6 feels much truer to Google's original vision for the Pixel: a high-end phone truly meant to challenge the iPhone and Samsung. Past couple of years have felt more budget-oriented and focused on the 3a/4a line.— Lisa Eadicicco (@LisaEadicicco) August 2, 2021
Google is finally taking Pixel phones seriously. Google's Tensor chip is capable of running Google's most power AI & ML models directly on the device. Pixel 6 pro is packed with ultra-high end specs.— Teja Karlapudi ☮️ (@teja2495) August 2, 2021
Google is finally doing it. I'm crying out of joy. 😭 https://t.co/RvkOSs6Aix
I’ll almost certainly get this as soon as it launches. My biggest wish for the Pixel remains that Google will pick a stable platform for the phone and then iterate on it for a good long while— Rene Ritchie (@reneritchie) August 2, 2021
Every generation still feels like a repudiation of the previous one. Go long term! https://t.co/6YnWknuTzY
If a life long iPhone User (not trapped within the Apple Ecosystem) switched to the Pixel 6 they would probably never switch back.— Rjey (@RjeyTech) August 2, 2021
Fact or 🧢?
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be the most impressive phones of the year and I don't think it's a competition. iPhone 12S better watch out.— Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) August 2, 2021
E.g., notice how Qualcomm always wants to pivot every conversation to the modem.— Alex Russell (@slightlylate) August 2, 2021
Here's a sneak peek at the newest Google Phones powered by Google Tensor - the brand new chip designed by Google, custom-made for Pixel.— Made By Google (@madebygoogle) August 2, 2021
📱 #Pixel6 Pro
Both are coming later this year.
We’ll tell you a little about them in this 🧵 👇
Now, maybe Google pulled a rabbit out of a hat and did what no other vendor but Apple has: double up those caches!— Alex Russell (@slightlylate) August 2, 2021
Not holding my breath w/ marketing like this, tho.
"Osterloh didn’t disclose exactly who is manufacturing Tensor, but says, “We designed it, own it, and drive it. This is our chip.”" 97% sure this will be made by TSMC, as they basically control the high-end fab chip market. https://t.co/kZAz6b0T3y via @wired— Zane Griffin Talley Cooper (@ZaneGTCooper) August 2, 2021
Following the industry trend of tech giants manufacturing their own processors, Google will start putting custom silicon in its phones. It's called Tensor, and the co has been working on this mobile chip for the past four years https://t.co/k02bFWydhw from me & @JulianChokkattu— Lauren Goode (@LaurenGoode) August 2, 2021
