More power and better connectivity on 5G platforms. In addition, Honor adds all of Google’s mobile services to its operating systems.
More power, better connectivity, and high-end in its next cell phone lines. This is what the smartphone brand Honor offers with its most recent partnership. The company, now independent from Huawei, issued a statement in which they reported that they will work hand in hand with Qualcomm. The intention and main objective are to use their Snapdragon 7 series chipsets and thus improve the 5G platforms of their equipment.
This is a great step forward for Honor, in its long and productive path towards total independence as a cell phone manufacturer. This is further confirmed by the fact that the company also states that its phones will work with Google’s mobile services.
However, Honor’s focus is not on the services it will use in its Android operating system, but on the processor that will run its phones. Qualcomm included Honor and five other smartphone brands, which will run its Snapdragon 778G.
Likewise, the cell phone manufacturer revealed that it will become one of the first OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) with the Android system with this latest chipset. They also detailed that the flagship product they chose to start using the Snapdragon 778G will be the Honor 50 series.
Honor intends to establish itself as a solid brand in the market and lead the world’s cell phone manufacturer rankings. And to make sure it will compete, it knows the way is to optimize the supply chain on features and components that they don’t directly manufacture.
“As a global technology brand, Honor has developed a strong network of industry-leading partners across our supply chain and our partnership with Qualcomm reinforces our commitment to working with global technology leaders,” explains George Zhao, CEO of HONOR Device Co, at the Qualcomm China Tech Day 2021 summit.
“The capabilities that were developed internally by Honor are now implemented in our use of the powerful Snapdragon platform. We believe this collaboration will help unlock the product’s full potential in our bid to deliver superior products and services to our customers around the world,” the company’s CEO added.
The company describes this partnership with Qualcomm as strategic. But it further underscores Honor’s efforts to fully embrace its global supply chain. It, therefore, collaborates with major industry players to thus usher in a new era of excellence and innovation.
Finally Honor “is dedicated to forward-thinking technology development and has been working closely with its partners to share its consumer vision and product development philosophy, improving the planning and design of chipsets,” they concluded in their statement.
