Relevant information from the Chinese smartphone industry reveals that Huawei’s new product which will unveil on November 28 will help to ease out the current number of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ processors from its shelves.
The company has already announced to unveiling new Huawei MatePad Pro 11-inch 2024 version tablet. Meanwhile, the past version of this giant screen device was packed with Snapdragon 888.
However, the upcoming MatePad Pro 11-inch 2024 tablet may be using a Snapdragon 8+ chip. There is also the possibility that Huawei may reveal the new Enjoy 70 series smartphones with 4G Snapdragon chips.
Industry analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo previously mentioned that Huawei will stop purchasing Qualcomm chipsets starting in 2024 and new models will only rely solely on Kirin chipsets.
With the shift in its strategies, Huawei may also choose to empty the Snapdragon inventory to produce more self-developed chipsets.
As a result, Qualcomm may not only lose orders from Huawei but also face the risk of short shipment goals from other Chinese brands for the upcoming year, as the company predicted.
It’s expected that Qualcomm’s SoC shipments to Chinese smartphone brands in 2024 will be at least 50-60 million, which could be less than the ongoing year.
