Mate 50 to come with new Snapdragon processor, Huawei will have sufficient SD chip after December
After a long time, Huawei launched its flagship phone – the Huawei P50 series with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Yet, the Chinese phone maker is able to first ship this phone with Kirin 9000 processor. However, it’s still locked to 4G, which is a big disappointment for some 5G consumers.
On the other hand, the standard P50 solely equips Snapdragon 888 4G processor. However, it seems that Huawei planning to emphasize Snapdragon processors and use them in every model due to the lack of Kirin chipsets.
According to a well-known Weibo blogger, Huawei’s Snapdragon-powered models will have sufficient supplies after December. Afterward, Huawei phones with Snapdragon 888 chips will become the mainstream models made by the company.
More interestingly, the tipster reveals that Qualcomm’s next-generation Snapdragon flagship chipset will be available for Huawei to purchase in proper quantity.
By dropping more information, the Huawei Mate 50 series and next Huawei foldable phones will also feature the new Snapdragon processor. This is not a surprising matter as the company has already used SD chipset in the P50 series and running low in terms of Kirin processors.
To be mentioned, Qualcomm Snapdragon has already adopted the HarmonyOS 2 operating system and Huawei’s new phones will come with this new OS.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 898:
Qualcomm’s next flagship chipset – Snapdragon 989 is reportedly under launch preparation and could unveil later this year. This upcoming processor will be processed with TSMC’s 4nm technology or Samsung’s.
According to the tipster – Ice Universe, the Snapdragon 898 chipset will come with the following architecture:
- One Kryo 780 core, likely based on the Cortex-X2, running at 3.09GHz
- Three Kryo 780 cores, likely based on the Cortex-A710, running at 2.4GHz
- Four Kryo 780 cores, likely based on the Cortex-A510, running at 1.8GHz
Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 will integrate 5G access but the chipset is facing some issues with the 5G RF components supply chain, and the processor’s 5G version may delay further from its scheduled launch.
So, will Qualcomm first introduce the 4G version? Well, we have to wait to see more inputs on this matter.
Will Huawei be able to access 5G?
Currently, there’s no official statement available on this information but if everything goes well, the company may get 5G chipset access back. Yet, we’ll keep you posted on this matter.
