As you probably know, the Pixel 6 series phones will be launched for the first time without Qualcomm chipset and instead with Google Tensor's proprietary chipset. In this regard, Qualcomm's Twitter account has mocked Google by posting a tweet. "We have also decided to build our own chipset instead of Snapdragon," the tweet said.
It should be noted that in the Android ecosystem, Samsung and Huawei are also able to design chipsets. However, Huawei has lost the ability to produce these chipsets due to US sanctions, and that is why the company's latest flagships have entered the market with Qualcomm-made chipsets. Samsung also uses Qualcomm chips for its flagships alongside the Exynos chip. So Google is the only company in this ecosystem that uses only a dedicated chipset for its flagships.
One of the most important reasons for Google to move in this direction is to increase the software support time of its phones. Although Qualcomm outperforms MediaTek and Unisoc in this area, it still lags behind Apple.
Of course, Google and Colcom announced last year that they would work together to extend software support for Snapdragon chips to four years. Of course, this new rule applies to new chips such as Snapdragon 888. On the other hand, it looks like the Pixel 6 will benefit from Google's upgrade for 5 years thanks to its proprietary chipset.
Google's proprietary chipset is likely to outperform Qualcomm's flagship chip. But Google could do more to optimize power consumption and bring more engaging features to machine learning and image processing.
