Google And Samsung Partnering Together On AI For Android & Galaxy Phones

Published

on


Google and Samsung are coming together as their partnership goes beyond Android. On one side, Pixel smartphone devices use Samsung-manufactured Tensor chips; on the other hand, Smsung’s flagship Galaxy smartphones have AI features, like Circle to Search, noticeably before even the Pixel 8 series got this novelty. 

In the report it is being unveiled, Rick Osteroh,  SVP of platforms and devices at Google, stated that the brand’s “partnership has never been stronger.” A post on X shared by @rosterloh pointed to a positive meeting between TM Roh and @SamsungMobile leadership. It highlights a strong partnership between both and excitement about future collaborations, particularly in the area of AI.

Following the statement, he also attached a selfie with TM Roh, president and head of MX Business at Samsung Electronics. 

Then, @SamsungMobile reposted Osterloh’s post and teased that both brands are actively working on expanding the functionalities of AI features for Android and Galaxy devices to enhance Galaxy experiences. 

Google has already announced at the last Galaxy Unpacked event, back in January in San Jose, that the Samsung Galaxy S24 series will use Gemini AI models to power the forthcoming AI capabilities in the applications and services built by the Korean giant. The brand also brought new functionalities for Google Messages and Android Auto, powered by Gemini Nano

For enhancing the summarizing facility, Samsung’s Smarter Notes, Voice Recorder, and Keyboard applications use the AI model Gemini Pro, whereas the Galaxy S24 series smartphones use Imagen 2 text-to-image technology to offer “Generative Edit” features in the Gallery application for upgrading photo editing.

Google Pixel 10 could have a powerful CPU but not from Samsung

Published

on


Google is ditching Samsung! Samsung and TSMC are the two competitors rivaling to be able to snatch the most important customers from the opponent, undoubtedly, which is Google. Google is expected to offer a powerful CPU in collaboration with TSMC for Pixel 10 devices. 

Google has long powered its Pixel devices with the Google Tensor, which is a system-on-chip processor designed in collaboration with Google and Samsung. Unfortunately, the result doesn’t come across as it should. This is the reason why Google is ditching Samsung over TSMC to give a powerful CPU to its Pixel devices.

Pixel 10 to Feature High-Performance CPU from TSMC

It’s reported that Google has decided to rely on TSMC for its processor with 3nm technology. The reason behind this sudden change is that Samsung has encountered problems in its production process, due to which the chips are not able to guarantee the desired performance and consume more energy than expected. 

Google’s Pixel smartphones deliver excellent software systems and great camera specs, but jumping on their hardware has been below expectations for so long since it overheats. Overheating is the key reason Google is shifting towards TSMC for the next-generation processors. Reportedly, seven major brands, including NVIDIA, AMD, Intel, Qualcomm, MediaTek, Apple, and Google, have already decided to focus on TSMC’s 3nm technology, which, with Tensor G4 (the CPU of the Google Pixel 9 series), should stop collaborating with Samsung after a manufacturing project that has been going on for several years. 

Google will use its Google Tensor G5 processor to power its Google Pixel 10 series, which will be able to integrate with TSMC’s 3nm technology, and this means that users should be able to count on devices capable of better managing heat and resources without sacrificing performance. Once this new collaboration comes into existence, overheating will not be the case for Google Pixel devices any longer.

Samsung Loses 3nm Chip Orders to TSMC for Google and Qualcomm

Published

By


Samsung Electronics’ chip manufacturing division is struggling hard with building well-organized 3nm chips. This forced major customers like Google and Qualcomm to shift to Samsung’s rival, TSMC, for their next-generation processors. 

The South Korean media reported that TSMC has just secured orders from Google and Qualcomm for next-gen 3nm because Samsung Foundry is having issues with yield and power efficiency. The new report from Business Korea suggests that most firms will deal out tier orders to TSMC for next-gen 3nm chip designs. As of today, 7 huge brands are using TSMC for 3nm designs, including NVIDIA, AMD, Intel, Apple, Qualcomm, MediaTek, and Google, which are focused on looking forward to the use of TSMC’s 3nm manufacturing process.

Google is shifting to TSMC to make their next-generation Pixel phone processor because Samsung Foundry is having problems with its 3nm chip technology. Meanwhile, Samsung Foundry is facing multiple issues, such as their 3nm chips (SF3E) having a lower yield and being less power efficient than expected, and it is also struggling to catch up to TSMC’s dominance. Google will use TSMC to make their next-gen Tensor G5 processor for Pixel 10 phones, maybe because TSMC’s 3nm technology is performing better. 

Noticeably, the Korean brand was the one that announced 3nm mass production back in 2022 for the first time. Apart from this, the next-gen Exynos 2500 processor that was developed by Samsung System LSI Division and produced through its in-house Samsung Foundry 3nm process is also reported to have “disappointing yields,” reports Business Korea. 

It is reported that TSMC holds a foundry market share of around 61.7% as it stands, with Samsung Foundry dropping to just 11% in the first quarter of the year. The representative also pointed out a few issues in heat management and stated that “heat issues in semiconductors have been a longstanding challenge for leading chip manufacturers over the past 20 years, but it has become a crucial issue with the onset of the AI semiconductor era. In mobile chips, heat issues can compromise the entire structure of smartphones, and for server chips, the heat generated by one server rack can spread like wildfire, potentially causing overload across the entire server.”.

Samsung and Elon Musk in Talks to Develop Futuristic X Phone

Published

on

By


Apple, at its WWDC 2024 event, introduced several new AI features for its devices. Apple has collaborated with OpenAI to merge ChatGPT with Siri and use its AI models to power the writing assistant functionality on its devices. 

Last night, the owner of X, Elon Musk, took to the platform to criticize Apple and OpenAI. Intelligently, he used meme language to mock Apple’s recent announcements and sound out their commitment to privacy and their cloud-based AI processing. Apart from this, he also highlighted what he thinks is feasible in OpenAI’s mechanism. 

It seems that Elon Musk has a self-interest in critiquing Apple and OpenAI because his brand, X, has its own competing AI model, Grok. He frequently uses its platform X to promote Grok and criticize OpenAI’s ChatGPT. After Apple’s WWDC 2024 event, a user on X instantly predicted that X would partner with Samsung to create an “X Phone” with an open-source, privacy-focused operating system, X OS. 

It is expected that this phone will connect with all of Elon Musk’s ventures, including Tesla cars, robots, tunnels, the internet, and even brain implants. The prediction jokingly hits an all-encompassing Musk device. The users also pointed to the probability that Starlink could start buying third-tier cellphone brands and upgrade their 5G networks with Starlink-connect towers in far-flung areas and at Tesla supercharger stations. 

In true Musk style, he responded to this tweet with an “It is not out of the question” post that not only confirms but also denies anything but also doesn’t say anything of substance. However, the most realistic probability appears to be that Starlink, Musk’s satellite internet brand, will come to have smaller cellphone providers, not the complex all-in-one device with multiple Musk ventures. 

An integration between Samsung and X for the “X Phone” is unlikely since the Korean giant prioritizes its own brand and doesn’t typically partner with other tech brands for co-branded phones. On the other side, creating a new smartphone operating system (OS) is not easy since Android and iOS already dominate the market for no reason. Other operating systems, such as Windows Phone and BlackBerry OS, have failed due to the lack of a powerfully built app ecosystem. 

The idea of an “X Phone” built by Samsung with X OS seems unrealistic for multiple reasons; for instance, debuting a new mobile OS is quite difficult; even Samsung gave up on its own Tizen OS. Although it will be interesting to see whether this report comes true.
