Qualcomm Snapdragon

Huawei will kick off June by hosting a lunch conference, in which, the company will unveil its latest tablet, smartwatch, and new software – HarmonyOS 2.0 for mobile devices.

However, these aren’t the only devices that will make the headlines in the coming month because Huawei has planned even beginner for July.

According to the information, Huawei will host another unveiling in July and will introduce the Huawei P50 series along with a new tablet – Huawei MatePad 2. However, there is a bit more interesting news on this matter the claims that these phones will be packed with Qualcomm processors.

Information coming from a well-known Weibo tipster claims that Huawei MatePad 2 and Huawei P50 devices will have the 4G version of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, which is really surprising to see happens.

The tipster also suggests that Huawei will bring three new tablets, two will be 12.6 and 10.8-inch labeled under the MatePad Pro 2, and will launch on June 2. While the next version will be the MatePad 2, which has a 12.2-inch screen size that will launch along with the P50 lineup.

Qualcomm 4G Processor?

A few months ago, a report revealed that Qualcomm internally testing a “4G” version of the Snapdragon 888 processor, which supports 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS storage. To be mentioned, especially, the chipset also found to be using “Leica” camera codes, which can be only found on Huawei smartphones, until P50.

Will Huawei be able to use Qualcomm Snapdragon 888?

Yes, because Qualcomm had received permission from the U.S. Department of Commerce to supply mobile phone chips to Huawei, it can only supply 4G mobile chips and not 5G.

Therefore, it would be very good for Huawei to use these chipsets and maintain its chipset volume as well as producing a number of new smartphones because the rest of the global market still doesn’t have vast 5G access compared to China and mobile operators still uses LTE networks.

Currently, Qualcomm only has a 5G version of Snapdragon 888 but if a chipmaker launches a brand new processor, then it should be able to sell to Huawei.

Keeping this in mind, Huawei can utilize the Snapdragon 888 4G and use it in the 4G version of its devices. On other hand, the company will use Kirin 9000 for 5G models.


Still, Huawei hasn’t said any word regarding this matter but we’ll likely get more information as we move forward towards the launch of these upcoming devices.
