Today, Honor officially announced its first self-developed RF network chip, Honor C1 and it will launch with Honor Magic 5 series on March 6 in China. The phone maker says the chipset will improve network connectivity even in weak signals.
According to the information shared by Honor, the new C1 chip has an optimized algorithm for traditional weak signal situations. These could occur in areas such as garages, basements, high-speed trains, and elevators.
Honor officials said that this first self-developed RF enhancement chip will greatly improve the network communication experience on smartphones. However, the performance of the chip is yet to be tested in real life environment.
People in Honor believe that it can make the 5G experience a step further. So this time Honor can directly compare with any brand through C1.
Honor Magic 5 series is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. It also has a with discrete Security chipset that provides maximum security for passwords and biometrics like face IDs and fingerprints.
Furthermore, Honor is also using other chipset solutions such as Pixelworks X5 Pro for display and now the four-core radio frequency chip will be added to the list of big hardware. Other than that, Honor is also promoting the world’s first silicon carbon anode battery, which could provide better battery and consumption performance than the lithium-ion battery.
In an interview, Honor CEO, Zhao Ming said that the industry lacks better network solutions for smartphones, which is why Honor could take advantage of this low competition zone to rise above.
The Honor chief also mentioned that Huawei Mate 40 Pro was the last example of excellent 5G network technology in mobile devices. Since Huawei is currently only launching 4G phones, Honor said it could be the new benchmark in mobile networking.
Will share with Huawei?
It’s an RF network enhancement chipset and not the RF chip itself. However, we’d have to confirm more inputs on this matter as well as the chipset architecture.
