The Tensor G4 SoC will power the Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, and possibly even the Pixel Fold 2. According to a new report today from Korea, Samsung’s foundry will manufacture the G4. This will be a 4nm process.

With the Tensor G4, heat management is supposed to be improved, as well as performance and efficiency are expected to improve. This chipset looks to be a step up from the G3 in every way, which is good news since the previous chipset did not win any awards.

Exynos 2400 might have brought some more customers to Samsung’s foundry this year, since the Galaxy S24 and S24+ featured an Exynos 2400 that was pretty well received – for an Exynos, at least. Despite that, Samsung’s foundry could be making money now since it has exceeded everyone’s expectations. Whatever the reason, it doesn’t matter, just that Samsung’s foundry now has an opportunity to make more money.

Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg and Open AI CEO Sam Altman both advocate reducing reliance on Taiwanese TSMC for chip production, as TSMC currently has about 50% market share. That seems to be something Samsung is willing to assist with.
