Alphabet Inc’s Google will utilize in-house processors for its Pixel phones, which will be released later this fall, in a departure from Qualcomm Inc’s technology, which has powered the search giant’s Android smartphones for more than 15 years.
Google revealed in a blog post that the Tensor processor will power the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones, with further specifics to come closer to the release.
Qualcomm, the world’s largest manufacturer of wireless chips for cellphones, was down slightly in afternoon trading.
Google stated that the next Pixel phone, the 5a, would continue to use a Qualcomm CPU.
“We will continue to collaborate closely with Google on existing and future Snapdragon-based devices,” a Qualcomm spokeswoman said in a statement.
Apple Inc began utilizing its own central processor developed for Macs last year, moving away from chipmaker Intel Corp.
