While it appeared that the US veto continues to affect manufacturer Honor, the brand has confirmed that this is not the case. In addition, good news is advancing for all those who are waiting for their next generation of mobiles: the Honor 50 will equip a Qualcomm SoC, the latest Snapdragon 778G with 5G connectivity.
The past two years have turned out to be almost a nightmare for Huawei: after being on the podium of smartphone manufacturers around the world, the brand has fallen to leave the most prominent ranking. And of course, this drop isn’t just for the main brand, Honor too; who at the time was affected by the same veto
Honor gets rid of veto after Huawei sale
The news surged in November of last year that Huawei had managed to sell Honor while preserving, at least in theory, its future in the development of new devices. From that moment we harbored serious doubts on whether the sale would actually look like this in the eyes of the US authorities
The brand has officially confirmed it: Honor is not affected by the commercial measures affecting its former parent brand. In this way, Honor’s next big mobile will make good use of a Qualcomm processor, the Snapdragon 778G. This will allow Honor to remain in the international market without having to depend on the number of Kirin processors left by Huawei.
The Honor 50 will see the light of day soon, as the brand’s progress, it could do so in June.. It will power the recently introduced Snapdragon 778G, a mid / high range SoC manufactured in 6nm, which includes support for 5G mobile networks and whose performance is expected to be as powerful as it is fast.
It’s good news that Honor has bypassed the US veto: it may be the only way part of the Huawei experience lands in the west with the latest processors and software. Presumably also with Google apps and services, but we’ll have to wait for it to appear to find out.
