There are now a few days left before the official launch event of the Google Pixel 6 series, scheduled for Tuesday 19 October 2021 and the attentions of fans and professionals are largely directed towards one of the main innovations introduced by the Mountain View giant, that is the Tensor processor, made directly by Google.
The choice of the Mountain View giant to get involved directly in the chip sector, a bit like Apple did, with the aim of being able to maximize the fusion between hardware and software, arouses great curiosity and, at the same time, it exposes Google to the risk of massive criticism should any problems be encountered by users.
Who does not look kindly on the operation made by Google in the management of Qualcomm, a bit worried that a possible success of Google Tensor could push the Mountain View giant to abandon the Snapdragon CPUs permanently and, at the same time, also entice other manufacturers to do the same?
Many, in fact, see a worrying precedent in Google Tensor and the Qualcomm team has decided to take advantage of the social fashion of the red flag to express sympathetically and publicly on Twitter their dissent towards the choice of the Mountain View giant:
The name of Google in the Twitter message is not mentioned but the phrase we decided to make our SoC instead of using Snapdragon does not seem to leave room for doubt about who can “hide” behind Qualcomm’s red flags.
Behind this nice game made by Qualcomm, there are also those who see some fear that the current leadership situation of the company in the processor sector may change, perhaps also due to the ongoing crisis that the market is experiencing for the shortage of raw materials.
