Google builds Tensor SoC for Pixel smartphones so their AI capabilities will be relevant five years from now

Pixel smartphones of the last two generations are based on SoC Tensor and are very far from the top solutions of Qualcomm, MediaTek Apple. But Google believes that this is not a problem at all.

Google builds Tensor SoC for Pixel smartphones so their AI capabilities will be relevant five years from now

In an interview, Monika Gupta, Senior Director of Product Management at Google Silicon Team, spoke about how Google approaches the creation of its new platforms and what guides it when choosing one or another development vector. It turned out that Google is looking to the future.

I don’t make decisions based on where machine learning is today, and I can say that because I work at Google. The same goes for the software that our development team makes. I know what the software development team wants to achieve from users in five years. This is the advantage of not being a commercial silicon supplier, but an internal silicon supplier. So these trade-offs are very complex, but I think they get a little easier when you’re vertically integrated.

Gupta added that the silicon team is talking to Google AI researchers to see exactly which machine learning models will be trending five years from now. That is, when developing Tensor, the search giant is trying, firstly, to focus on AI-related technologies and functions, and secondly, to strive to make the AI-related capabilities of SoC Tensor still relevant in five years.

As for benchmarks, Gupta says that’s definitely not Google’s goal.

I think classic benchmarks served a purpose at one point, but the industry has evolved since then. Classic tests were created at a time when AI and phones didn’t even exist.

They may tell a story, but we don’t feel like they’re telling the full story. So, for us, what we evaluate is the actual software workloads that we run on our chip, and then we strive with each generation of the Tensor chip to make them better, be it better quality, better performance, lower power consumption.

By the way, today we have already seen that in real tasks the Pixel 7 Pro can sometimes significantly lose to the current flagships of Apple or Samsung, but in most applications the difference is still minimal.

For iPhone 15, Apple will purchase the latest Sony sensors, which have no analogues on the market

For iPhone 15 Apple will purchase the latest Sony sensors

Sony will supply its state-of-the-art image sensors to Apple, which will be used in the iPhone 15 line of smartphones.

For iPhone 15, Apple will purchase the latest Sony sensors, which have no analogues on the market

The new Sony Semiconductor Solutions sensor has roughly doubled the saturation signal per pixel compared to conventional image sensors. This matches the description of the new technology that Sony talked about last year.

This is the industry’s first multi-layer CMOS sensor. While the photodiodes and pixel transistors of conventional CMOS sensors are formed in the same layer, they are in different layers in the new sensor. This allows you to expand the dynamic range, increase the photosensitivity and reduce the noise level.

Apparently, this technology has not yet found application in any of Sony’s sensors. Whether Apple will be the first to receive such sensors is unknown. It is also unclear whether they will be used in all iPhone 15 or only in older models. Given the trends of recent years, as well as all the rumors about Apple’s intention to separate younger and older iPhones more strongly, it is likely that only older models will get new sensors, or even exclusively iPhone 15 Ultra.

Telegram will receive support for paid phone numbers but it

In the latest beta version of the Telegram mobile client for Android, there was a mention of anonymous virtual phone numbers that can be bought. They will be on sale on the Fragment site, but the exact launch date has not yet been given.

Telegram will receive support for paid phone numbers, but it will be impossible to call them

These numbers will begin with the code +888, and it will be impossible to call them. They are designed specifically to work with Telegram and are used to receive confirmation codes. It is not yet reported whether there will be rooms with a different code.

The price, terms of sale or other data about the system are also not reported. However, it is possible that the scheme will work the same way as with nicknames that are already sold on Fragment.

Note that the site has already found the most expensive nickname – @news. They paid $1.76 million for it. The name of the buyer is not disclosed.

Even the cheapest Samsung Galaxy A series phone will look

Insider Evan Blass has published a high-quality rendering of one of the most affordable Samsung phones – the Galaxy A14. The front panel of the novelty with a tear-shaped screen cutout and a large “chin” looks typical for a “state employee”, but the back panel with three island modules is very reminiscent of what we will see in the Galaxy S23 flagship phones.

In 2023, Samsung is scaling up the flagship Galaxy S23 design to almost all of its phones, but some (like Ice Universe insider) are calling it a mistake. And while low-end users may be flattered by the resemblance to a flagship, it’s unlikely to work the other way around.

According to Evan Blass, the Galaxy A14 will have a large screen with a diagonal of 6.8 inches, but its resolution will be small – HD+. The phone also has a 5000 mAh battery. The front camera will have a sensor with a resolution of 13 megapixels, the resolution of the main sensor of the main camera is 50 megapixels.

Evan Blass has previously been noted for many truthful leaks. At one time, he published accurate images of the Sony Xperia 5 II, Galaxy Note20, Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Watch 3 and Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, Xiaomi 12 before their official premiere.
