representatives of the Honor sub-brand Huawei officially confirmed that they will start using 5G MediaTek processors in new smartphones. This media statement was made by the President, a business unit of Huawei Min Zhao after the presentation of the model of Honor X10.
Honor X10 is the device of an average price category, with support for connecting to 5G networks and chip HiSilicon Kirin 820 of its own design Huawei, writes Gizmochina. Despite this, said Zhao, for their next device the company will elect MediaTek platform with 5G.
a Top Manager stressed that the company has built a good relationship with MediaTek and intends to strengthen this cooperation in the near future. Chips are already used in some budget machines of the brand (for example, MediaTek Helio P35 in Play 8A), but now they can transfer and the model of “an average hand”.
5G connection have two series of platforms MediaTek – Dimensity 1000L/1000/1000+ and Dimensity 820. Some of them may choose to Honor, Zhao said.
due to an ongoing trade war between the US and China’s Huawei have been cut off from the supply of TSMC. The firm, which forbade the manufacture of semiconductors with the assistance of American technology to sanctioned companies, producing for Huawei about 98% of processors for smartphones, servers and base stations. This suggests that the MediaTek chip will switch smartphones not only sub-brand Honor and Huawei.
