The Google Pixel 6 is the only smartphone on the market right now that incorporates a custom ‘Tensor’ System-on-a-Chip design created in collaboration with Samsung. The Pixel 6 has an upgraded ‘Titan’ chip, which was overhauled for previous generations of Pixel phones.
Google’s official Security Blog published a post on Wednesday about the Pixel 6’s security measures, including some information specifically about the Titan M2. It’s still a discrete security chip, but Google has switched it to a custom RISC-V processor.
There’s also the Google Tensor security core in the Pixel 6, which is similar to Samsung’s Knox. The Google Tensor security core features its own dedicated CPU, ROM, one-time-programmable (OTP) memory, crypto engine (no, not cryptocurrency), internal SRAM, and protected DRAM.
