Huawei gained access to two more Qualcomm processors

The Chinese company Huawei is going through hard times now. As a result of increased US sanctions in 2020, it has been cut off from most of its suppliers, including Qualcomm. But with the arrival of new US President Joe Biden, the situation for Huawei began to improve. Not so long ago, it got access to chips manufactured by Qualcomm and was able to release the flagship series Huawei P50 at the end of July. And according to sources, the Chinese company will continue to be able to use Qualcomm chipsets.

In addition to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, the 4G version of which formed the basis of the Huawei P50 Pro, the Chinese company gained access to two other chips from Qualcomm. This is a mid-level platform Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G and the yet to be announced flagship chip Qualcomm SM8450, also known as Snapdragon 898. However, as in the case of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, Huawei will only be able to install 4G versions of the aforementioned processors in its smartphones due to the actions of the American sanctions.

Presumably, Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G will form the basis of the Huawei Nova 9 series. And the 5G version of the yet unannounced Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 will most likely be installed in smartphones of the Huawei Mate 50 series, the launch of which has been postponed indefinitely.

The same sources said that in the future, Huawei smartphones may include not only Qualcomm, but also MediaTek mobile processors. True, the deal between the Chinese smartphone manufacturer and the Taiwanese chipmaker has not yet been completed.
