With the sanctions lifted, Honor can now purchase smartphone chipsets from Qualcomm. Now, according to the report, both companies are in in-depth negotiations and are about to conclude a deal.
There is no doubt that the two companies-Huawei and Honor will now compete with each other, and it will be interesting to see how it works.
Previously, Honor CEO Zhao Ming communicated with employees, saying that Honor now aims to become the leading smartphone brand in the Chinese market.
Under Huawei’s leadership, the Honor brand produces cheap and mid-range smartphones, while high-end quality products come from Huawei’s P series and Mate series.
But now, if the deal is reached, Honor will also launch advanced equipment, possibly powered by the newly launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset.
Both companies are not just the best in the smartphone field. Zhao Ming has confirmed that Honor will launch devices other than smartphones, but has not revealed much information yet.
Based on the company’s track record, it can be said with certainty that Zhao Ming is talking about launching devices such as smart TVs, smart watches, fitness bracelets and laptops under the honorary brand already owned by the brand.
At the same time, the brand is preparing to launch its new V-series smartphones next month.
According to reports, these phones will be powered by the MediaTek chipset that the company already uses. This will be the first important announcement after the company split into interdependent brands.
