It seems all but certain that the Pixel 10’s chip will be made by TSMC

The Pixel line's Tensor chips have long been hamstrung by a less-than-ideal manufacturer. That could change soon.

  • A Korean outlet has reported that the Tensor G5 processor will be made by TSMC.
  • This comes after our own exclusive story revealing evidence of a TSMC-made Tensor G5.
  • A TSMC-made Tensor chip would likely deliver improved performance and battery life in Pixel phones.

We recently uncovered evidence that TSMC will manufacture the Tensor G5 processor, which is expected to power the Pixel 10 series. Now, another outlet has seemingly corroborated claims of a switch.

BusinessKorea reports that Google will switch to TSMC’s 3nm process for the Pixel 10’s Tensor G5 processor. The outlet asserts that the Tensor G4, tipped to launch inside the Pixel 9 range, will still be made by Samsung Foundry, though.
