Only in 2025 will Google release the first mobile Tensor processor in its own design

Google has long tried to increase its intellectual property share in the mobile processor architecture for Pixel smartphones, but it still relies heavily on collaboration with Samsung in this area. According to reports, a completely independently developed family of Tensor G5 processors will appear no earlier than 2025 and will be manufactured by TSMC in 3 nm technology.

For this with reference to The information reported the publication 9to5Google. As previously mentioned, it was originally expected that Google would release the first homegrown mobile processor by the end of last year so that the company could use it in the Pixel 2024 family of smartphones. The processor, codenamed Redondo, will never be mass-produced, but Google plans to use the experience gained in its development to create a successor, due out in 2025.

From a technological point of view, the Tensor G5 will be quite an advanced chip, since TSMC will not only equip it with the 3nm manufacturing technology, but also with an integrated fan-out layout that reduces the thickness of the case and the power consumption. Released in 2024, the Tensor processors will continue to be developed in close collaboration with Samsung, with Google trying from generation to generation to increase the proportion of self-developed function blocks that are not influenced by Samsung.

Rumor has it that Google canceled the release of a laptop based on the Tensor processor family last year. The project was hampered by the problems of interaction between the development teams in the US and India, as well as high staff turnover in the specialist departments. At the same time, the Google management does not want to do without further improvements to its own processors, which can be used in pixel smartphones.
