Samsung is testing the Pixel 8's third-gen Tensor chip

Google's Pixel 6 series introduced a slew of firsts to the Pixel portfolio. The introduction of the Google Tensor processor was maybe the most significant. While Google created it in-house, the firm solicited the assistance of Samsung to put it together.

This partnership seems to be continuing for the foreseeable future, as Samsung is said to be hard at work developing a next-generation Google Tensor processor – one that may be intriguing if you're intending to delay your Pixel purchase until 2023.
