Samsung is reportedly working with Google to develop a powerful chip that is expected to launch later. It has previously been reported that the Google Tensor 3 chip, which is expected to power the upcoming Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro devices, will be fabricated on Samsung Foundry’s third-generation 4nm process node. A new leak has now suggested that the Tensor 3 could be a custom Samsung Exynos 2300 chipset, while another leak has hinted at specs for the next-gen Exynos 2300 SoC.


According to a report from PhoneArena, a tipster in a now-deleted tweet suggested the Samsung Exynos 2300 chip core information on Twitter, following which an ITHome report hinted at some specs of the chipset, believed to be named code “Quadra”.

Tipster Jason (@_ImJason) tweeted the same specifications later. According to the leaks, the alleged 1+4+4 configuration would feature a high-performance 3.09 GHz Cortex-X3 core. The four performance cores (ARM Cortex-A715) should run at 2.65 GHz, while the four efficiency cores (ARM Cortex-A510) should run at 2.10 GHz. The graphics chip would be the Samsung Xclipse 930 SoC. An unconfirmed special core for One UI optimization may also be included.

The launch schedule of said Samsung chipset is unknown and there has been speculation that the company will skip the Exynos 2300 and 2400 processors and instead go straight to work on the Exynos 2500 chipset. However, the Exynos 2300 SoC is also expected to be reconfigured and used by Google for its Tensor 3 chipset likely to power Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro devices.

The PhoneArena report adds that Samsung is going above and beyond for the Exynos 2500 SoC, which will include a new neural processing unit (NPU) for AI and machine learning. The chipset, which could feature in the Galaxy S25 series, will have two X5 high-performance cores, two Cortex-A7xx performance cores, four Cortex-A5xx efficiency cores, a One UI optimization core, as well as an AMD GPU. RDNA2.

On the Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 series, Google Tensor and Tensor 2 chips were used. The first Tensor chip was derived from a re-engineered Exynos 2100 SoC, while Tensor 2 was based on a revised Exynos 2200 SoC that was supposed to power future mid-range Pixel Tablet, Pixel Fold, and Pixel 7a models. The Pixel 7a and foldable Pixel Fold are set to launch on May 10 at Google’s I/O 2023 developer conference.
