Google Sets Its Sights On Apple With A Newly-Redesigned Pixel Phone Chip

Late last November, Apple made quite the splash when it launched its latest system-on-a-chip (SoC) for Macs, the M1. Touting the world’s best CPU performance per watt as well as the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a PC, it proved a truly ground-breaking addition to the tech industry.

Apparently, however, Google has been taking notes, because it’s just announced an all-new SoC of its own. Dubbed the ‘Tensor,’ it’s the company’s first custom-built chip to be specifically designed for Pixel phones. As such, it’s set to debut in the upcoming Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro later this fall, bringing with it a boatload of improvements over its predecessors. But here’s the thing — in addition to the obvious upgrades in processing speed and power, it’ll also unlock entirely new features, including unmatched hardware security, optimized speech recognition, and even a completely revamped camera system. When combined with the phone’s updated form factor and redesigned sensor array, it could very well be the iPhone killer we’ve been waiting for. Check it out at the link below.
