Qualcomm has so far supplied the chipsets for the Pixel phones and Pixel 6 will change that. Qualcomm has lost some of its revenue base, even if it is small compared to the other companies it ships its chipsets to.
With the red flags (not just a single red flag) in the tweet, Qualcomm appears to be warning Android Users don’t trust the Google Tensor chip.
It’s not like the two companies have completely split up. Google and Qualcomm will continue to work together to support the Android platform. But Qualcomm has certainly expressed its displeasure with its tweet at being thrown for Google’s flagship smartphone.
With the introduction of its own in-house chip for the Pixel 6 series, Google is taking steps towards independence. According to a previous report from Nikkei Asia, the tech giant may also have plans for its own chipset for its upcoming Chromebooks and tablets based on input from three sources. According to the report, Google could introduce the new chipsets by 2023.
“The new CPUs and mobile processors that Google is developing are based on chip blueprints from Arm, the Softbank-controlled UK chip company whose intellectual property is used in more than 90% of the world’s mobile devices,” the report said .
