    Google to Launch Own Processor for Upcoming Pixel Phones

    Alphabet's Google will use processors designed in-house for its Pixel phones launching later this fall, in a shift away from Qualcomm's technology that has powered the search giant's Android devices for more than 15 years.

    The processor, called Tensor, will power the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones, Google said in a blog post, with the company set to disclose more details closer to the release.

    Shares of Qualcomm, the world's largest maker of wireless chips for smartphones, were down marginally in afternoon trading.

    "We will continue to work closely with Google on existing and future products based on Snapdragon platforms," a Qualcomm spokesperson said in a statement.

    Last year, Apple started using its own central processor designed for Mac devices, in a step away from chipmaker Intel.
