Did Google tell a lie about “its” Pixel 6 Tensor processor?

A few days ago Google announced Pixel 6 and 6 Pro with the new SoC Tensor. Beyond what these devices were expected (we know they will arrive very shortly), the biggest novelty is precisely the Google processor Tensor. Recall that this SoC is called Whitechapel actually, and according to our information it should be the company's first proprietary processor but is that really the case? Apparently the colossus of Mountain View told a big lie. Let's see why.

We thought Google Tensor was a proprietary processor, but in reality the Pixel 6 SoC is just a Samsung Exynos 9855

Google Pixel smartphones previously relied on Snapdragon processors from Qualcomm. The company didn't reveal much information about the SoC Tensor in question, at least not until today. However, he advertised the artificial intelligence of this chip, creating the impression that it will be on a completely different level compared to the competition. Be that as it may, some new information has emerged suggesting that Tensor is actually a Samsung Exynos chip.

There have already been reports in recent months that Google has developed its own mobile processor with Samsung. While it hasn't confirmed the technical details on the CPU, GPU, and 5G modem, it is likely there will be a greater level of involvement from Samsung. Reports also indicate that it is Samsung that is producing Tensor with the 5nm LPE manufacturing process.

It was first reported last year that Samsung is working on two new high-end Exynos chipsets, one of which features an AMD GPU: Exynos 9855 and Exynos 9925. GalaxyClub back (via sammobile) that theExynos 9855 is codenamed Whitechapel. Ultimately, Google's SoC is the brand new Exynos 9855.

So where does the Exynos 9855 fit in terms of performance? If we consider that the Galaxy S2100's Exynos 21 had Exynos 9840 as its internal model number and the Exynos 9925 will debut as the Exynos 2200 with the Galaxy S22 series next year, it means that Google Tensor will come very close in performance to the Galaxy S2100's Exynos 21.
