Follow us into that special room in Mountain View, California where only those making decisions for Google at the highest levels are allowed to enter. On this day, a momentous decision was on the schedule. What would be the name of the sequel to Google’s first homemade Tensor chip? No doubt the company had thousands of documents and pages of statistical analysis to look at.
It’s shocking but the sequel to the Tensor chipset may be called the Tensor 2
After hours of tension-filled conversations interrupted only to continue the next round of Google’s company-wide foosball championship, a decision was, well, sort of made. The sequel to the Google Tensor chip, likely to make its debut on the Pixel 7 series, would be tentatively named the Tensor 2. Yes, all of those brain cells were firing at top speeds only to deliver a half-assed tentative name for the second-generation Tensor chip.

Magic Eraser is one of the most discussed features of the Pixel 6 series. It allows the user to eliminate unwanted and distracting people, items, and objects from a photo without using expensive third-party software. Live Translate’s Interpreter Mode allows Google Assistant to act as a digital interpreter. It translates a sentence you’ve just said in your home language into the language of the person sitting next to you.
June Pixel Quarterly Feature Drop should be released on June 6th
Speaking of the Pixel, tomorrow is June 6th which makes it the first Monday of the month. Not only does this mean that compatible Pixel models will receive the monthly Android security update, it also means that models from the Pixel 4 and up could receive functional updates to exterminate bugs.
And tomorrow’s treasure trove of updates is also expected to include the Quarterly June Pixel Feature Drop. Unless you’ve been living in a Pixel-free country, you are probably aware that Pixel 6 Pro users could find their phone sporting the Face Unlock facial recognition system once they install the new software update on their phone.
