I believe its a custom design by google and I bet Samsung is just the manufacture.Am I the only one who is skeptical of the Samsung SOC collaboration? It's not like the Exynos chips have been anywhere near as good as Qualcomm in terms of either performance or battery life.
Yea you could be right. I believe the current projected performance puts it's a bit behind Qualcomm SD888 but google does not need top tier socs to make there phones smooth. I really hope they start tightly integrating there software to there devices like apple does. Or start looking at optimizing battery life.We shall see man - lf Qualcomm is any guide this is likely to be a standard A-series CPU, with custom dsp
And Google also lacks any custom gpu (just tensors in the dsp)
This all I ask for myself. I don't give two fucks about performance. As long as it is responsive and good battery life I am happy. I don't use my phone for anything but calls/text and YouTube.I don't even play games on my phone, so I don't really care about pure horsepower. I just want a pleasant form factor, a usage experience with no bloat, a camera that works, and as much battery life as possible.

I believe the 6 is gonna get a flat display but the 6 pro is getting a curved and makes sense as it's 6.7x which is massiveWill the smaller P 6 have a flat non curved screen?
One thing I really like on my iPhone 12 Pro Max is the totally flat display and straight edge band.
I'm just going to watch these very carefully and see what early impressions are like. If they're overly expensive or don't perform/look as expected I might just go for a heavily discounted Pixel 5.
I just picked one of these up for my wife. I like it. Definitely a smaller phone. It isn’t much larger than the 4A I had. I don’t like how by the time I pick one up there will only be less than two years of support left. To me that is the biggest draw of the new Pixel.
Ikr? I rather have the sensor on the back. My phone stays in my pocket most the time and it is a easy single motion to unlock my phone while taking it out. I can't do that with it on the front.I don't know why everyone wants an in-screen fingerprint reader. I suppose the only time that I would use it would be to unlock my phone while it is on a table instead of picking it up and unlocking it or just using the PIN. The rear fingerprint reader has been rock solid for me for years on my Pixel phones.

Yea it is more of a look at me feature. It is why I can't stand phone reviews on YouTube. They just not picking at this point.I find that the ones on the back also simply work better. I find that the desire for screen-based fingerprint readers is more about the idea rather than the reality of the technology.
Sounds very promising but a few turn off curved edge screen of a big no-no much rather than go completely flat like the iPhone 12 line.
and the very strange design of the back of this phone just not feeling it at like so fragile and breakable I know I’ll put a case on it but even then it seems like it would be a big bulky phone and even weird to put a case around that with that camera part in the middle protruding out just seems like an awkward design not comfortable.
So when do we actually get to benchmark it, and it turn out that the CPU has identical performance to a Qualcomm 888, just one year later?
