The Pro variant is expected to arrive with the Snapdragon 888, while the company confirms that Honor 50 will be powered by Snapdragon 778G, one of the phones in the phone manufacturer’s upcoming lineup.
Honor, which left Huawei last November, began negotiations with Qualcomm to supply chips earlier this year. In a post shared by the smartphone maker, it has been announced that the upcoming Honor 50 will be among the first smartphones powered by Qualcomm’s new chipset, the Snapdragon 778G 5G.
‘We can switch to HarmonyOS in the future’
The company, which recently confirmed that Google services will be offered in the Honor 50 series, also announced that they will benefit from Qualcomm’s newest chipset in the series. Although Honor’s upcoming series will include a Snapdragon 778G chipset, the Honor 50 Pro, which will be the most powerful variant in the series, is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 888.
The previously revealed images of the Honor 50, one of the models in the series to be introduced in June, show the different structure of the rear camera setup. There will be three image sensors in total in two circular areas.
According to the leaked information about the device, the 50MP primary lens to be included in the rear camera setup will be accompanied by a 13 MP ultra-wide lens and an 8 MP telephoto sensor. On the front, there will be a dual camera setup consisting of 32MP and 8MP sensors. The phone will also feature a 6.79-inch AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate.
With these developments, Honor CEO Zhao Ming said in a statement that Android is their first choice for now, but they can choose HarmonyOS with future developments.
