For a long time, due to US sanctions, the Chinese company Huawei could not use Qualcomm processors in its smartphones. Recently, the “curse” has eased a little – the flagships of the Huawei P50 series have received the top-end Snapdragon 888 platform. Now, according to reliable sources, the manufacturer has gained access to several more Qualcomm chips.
The information was reported by the Chinese insider Digital Chat Station, who has repeatedly received reliable information about Huawei’s new products. According to him, the company will also use Snapdragon 778G and Snapdragon 898 processors in future smartphones. But, as in the case of the P50, these will be 4G versions of the chips, without the ability to work in fifth-generation networks.
Unfortunately, the insider did not tell which models will receive the new chips. But it can be assumed that the Snapdragon 778G is for the Huawei nova 9 series, and the Snapdragon 898 is for the upcoming Mate 50 flagships.
In addition, an insider claims that Huawei may also use MediaTek chipsets, however the deal has yet to be finalized.
