The Tensor G2 on the Pixel 7a may be a weaker version than Pixel 7

Currently, Google Pixel 7a is dominating the budget smartphone market. It was launched at the Google I/O a month ago and offers similar hardware to its flagship counterpart, including the Tensor G2 chipset. However, there has been a recent discovery suggesting that our assumption about the Pixel 7a chipset may be incorrect. It appears that Google might have used a slightly different version of Tensor G2 on the 7a. Is it really a different Tensor G2 inside Pixel 7a? While we initially believed that Google had used the same Tensor G2 chipset in both devices, popular tipster Kamila Wojciechowska has found evidence indicating otherwise. According to Wojciechowska, both devices use identical Tensor G2 chipsets; however, Google employed a different packaging technique for the 7a’s chipset. So what's this IPOP stuff about? It seems like Google made a version of Tensor G2 in a worse package, most likely to reduce cost.The implications of this? According to Samsung [3], IPOP is thicker, larger and hotter than FOPLP.— kamila 🏳️‍⚧️ 🌸 (@Za_Raczke) June 19, 2023 Packaging is an essential process in chip production where a protective cover is placed over the chipset to shield it from external elements. The package also facilitates connectivity between the chipset and other device components it needs to interact with. In terms of packaging differences, Google reportedly utilized IPOP packaging for the Pixel 7a while employing FOPLP-PoP packaging for its Pixel 7 series. Now, does this disparity in packaging hold any significance? Well, perhaps. FOPLP-PoP packaging vs. IPOP According to information available on Samsung’s website,…The Tensor G2 on the Pixel 7a may be a weaker version than Pixel 7
