Pixel 7 series with Google Tensor G2 SoC has better battery life, better 5G modem than Pixel 6

The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro were launched in India earlier this month. The company’s latest Pixel-branded smartphone debuts the next-generation Tensor G2 SoC produced using Samsung’s 4nm manufacturing process. The chipset is said to bring improved CPU and GPU performance over the SoCs powering the Pixel 6 series. The maximum clock frequency of the Tensor G2 SoC is 2.85GHz. It also integrates the Mali-G710 GPU, Google’s Titan M2 security chip, and the second-generation EdgeTPU AI processor.

According to a report by SamMobile, the Google Tensor G2 SoC that powers the Pixel 7 series is produced using Samsung’s 4nm LPE process. It is said to be an upgrade from the 5nm LPE processor used in the previous Tensor SoC.


Google is said to be focusing on improving AI performance and security capabilities with the Tensor G2 SoC. The report mentions that the Tensor G2 SoC contains two 2.85GHz ARM Cortex-X1 cores, as well as two ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.35GHz, and four ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz.

Additionally, the chipset is said to be paired with a Mali-G710 GPU for improved gaming and HDR performance. The Google Tensor G2 SoC can also be integrated with the second-generation EdgeTPU AI processor. It is reportedly compatible with LPDDR5 RAM. It has 4MB of shared L3 cache and 8MB of total system cache.

The next-generation Tensor G2 SoC is said to have an improved image signal processor (ISP), enabling it to record 4K 60fps video on all cameras. The chipset can reportedly handle the 108-megapixel camera without stuttering or lag.

It comes with the recently announced Samsung Exynos 5300 5G modem, which is faster and more power efficient than the modem on the first-generation Tensor chipset that debuted with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
