Google has experienced the delights of building and deploying a homegrown semiconductor with its Tensor SoC and has seen the advantages for its current 6 Pixels. As a result, it is no surprise to discover that the company is already working on a new generation SoC, this time created in-house, to power the upcoming Pixel 7.
9to5Google identified hints to something like a new product connected to the Pixel line, marked by the tag line “Cloudripper,” after searching through the programs’ code on the existing Pixel 6. According to the specialist site, the latter would not refer to “a baseboard or a development board having hardware in common with both phones,” but rather to “a baseboard or a development board having hardware in common with both phones.”

Google had previously used a code name similar to “Slider” to indicate Pixel 6 and 6 Pro components. It wouldn’t be shocking if the company followed suit with its following devices. In this example, “Cloudripper” would be tied to a new Tensor chip with the model number “GS201” for the time being. To refresh your memory, the Google Tensor SoC in the Pixel 6 is designated as “GS101.” Google might release a new Tensor CPU every year to accompany its new Pixel devices, similar to Apple’s AXX Bionic processors. However, we do not know what technical innovations and hardware advancements will be found on the upcoming Google Tensor SoC in the near future. In the following months, though, we should learn more from the spate of leaks that will undoubtedly reveal more about the 7 Pixels and their components.
