The Tensor G2 processor powering the most recent Pixel 7 series was constructed using Samsung Foundry's 5nm manufacturing process, as some of Android Authority's keen readers correctly noticed in our coverage.
Given that the industry's leading processors are currently constructed on 4nm nodes from Samsung and TSMC and are anticipated to reach 3nm in the following generation, perhaps this is not what many had expected.
Some publications don't do their due diligence, basing their articles on unfounded rumors from the past, unrealistic expectations, or simply reprinting someone else's incorrect response.
We specifically asked Google for our original article, as is customary around here. Since then, we've contacted the Tensor G2 creator once more to confirm everything and restate the matter.
To understand what all of this means in the context of the Pixel 7 series and its competitors, be sure to read Android Authority's in-depth analysis of the Tensor G2's internal workings.
