Huawei gained access to Snapdragon 898 and Snapdragon 778G for new smartphones

At the end of July, Huawei announced the Huawei P50 series, which, although it does not support fifth-generation networks, is equipped with Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 888 mobile platform. Now, it is reported that new Huawei smartphones will use more Qualcomm SoCs.

A verified insider under the nickname Digital Chat Station claims that Huawei has two more Qualcomm SoCs in addition to the Snapdragon 888. These are the Snapdragon 778G and the upcoming SM8450 (Snapdragon 898).

As with the Huawei P50, the company's new smartphones, which will be powered by Snapdragon 778G and Snapdragon 898, will lack 5G connectivity. Huawei will receive 4G versions of mobile platforms due to ongoing US sanctions. The source does not mention which Huawei phones will use these mobile platforms.

Presumably, the 4G version of the Snapdragon 778G could be used in the new Huawei nova 9 series, which is due to be unveiled in the coming days. On the other hand, the top-end SoC Snapdragon 898 could form the basis of the delayed Huawei Mate 50 series.

And one more very important point: Digital Chat Station says that the Chinese tech giant can also start using MediaTek single-chip systems in its smartphones, but the corresponding contract has not yet been signed.

Digital Chat Station was the first to accurately report the specifications and release dates of the Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 11.
