A Company known as Honor, which used to be a Huawei subsidiary, has revealed that it will be using Qualcomm chips in incoming phones. In particular, the business wants to release the new Honor 50 series, and the Snapdragon 778G SoC unveiled last week will power the new range. Honor Germany made it clear to a user on Twitter that phones with Google pre-installed will also have the software, but their post was immediately deleted. Two years ago, US sanctions on Huawei put Honor in danger, and to secure its existence, Huawei handed off the Honor brand to a partnership of over 30 agents and dealers.


The business made an official announcement on its Twitter feed stating that a new Honor 50 series is on the way and that it would be powered by the Snapdragon 778 SoC. According to Honor, the Honor 50 series will be unveiled in the summer. The Honor CEO George Zhao reportedly revealed during the Qualcomm China Tech Day event that a new phone using Qualcomm’s flagship SoC is in the development. Additionally, Zhao praised his team for incorporating the Snapdragon 778G SoC into their coming phone in six months, which is considered to be a task that takes a year to accomplish.


Honor Germany, in response to a user inquiry on the Android licence, responded with a declaration that future phones will include Google apps installed from the factory. In addition to Gizmochina, multiple other publications noticed this tweet before it was deleted. It’s a pretty safe bet that the Honor 50 series will come to market, given that the Germany account has been so active with announcements and comments. Further details regarding the launch of Honor in other international countries have not been made public, but we may expect additional information to become available in the near future.


Huawei’s smartphone industry has taken a major hit since the U.S. trade restriction two years ago. Honor couldn’t get Qualcomm chips, and so could not have access to Google Mobile Services. In order to safeguard the company’s longevity, the brand was sold to a consortium in November last year. Honor has returned to the world market, and the business has been hard at work creating its place in it.
