Last year, Honor announced the sale of some of its assets, which gave way to the thought that the company is done doing business in the smartphone space. The company also separated from Huawei probably, due to the challenges that Huawei has been coping with since President Donald Trump became president.
After severing ties with Huawei, Honor is reportedly working on its first phone since then, and it is a 5G smartphone that is receiving so much attention from observers.
Now that Honor is no longer under the ban, it can choose from a variety of core components, including mainstream chip suppliers such as Qualcomm, MediaTek, and Samsung.
The first new phone from the company after gaining independence from Huawei is the Honor V40 series that will be equipped with a MediaTek chip. On the other hand, Honor is planning to make use of Qualcomm Snapdragon.
Since the news is only emanating from Honor Mobile Phone Supply Chain Company, Honor itself has not really revealed which Qualcomm chip will be used on the 5G phone. At a summit last year, the president of Qualcomm was very happy to announce the new freedom that Honor got, saying that he looks forward to future cooperation.
In view of that statement, it shows that there may be more partnership between the two sides than we expect. Qualcomm has also revealed that it is in communication with Honor but there are no details yet regarding exactly what will result from the dialogues.

However, the two companies have a positive relationship with each other. A close source to both sides said that things are looking very optimistic regarding upcoming plans.
But experts are still wondering which of Qualcomm Snapdragon chips will be used on Honor’s upcoming 5G phone? Could it be the latest Snapdragon 888? We look forward to confirming that.
