It is possible that many Honor smartphones with support for fifth generation (5G) mobile communications, which will be released next year, will carry MediaTek processors on board.
The Honor brand, created by the Chinese giant Huawei, was sold to a consortium of 40 companies last month. The reason is the US sanctions, due to which Huawei has lost the ability to effectively conduct its cellular business.
Meanwhile, Honor, whose smartphones are very popular in many regions, including Russia, plans to actively develop the lineup. This will require modern processors, in particular, chips with 5G support. According to DigiTimes, MediaTek expects to agree on the supply of just such products, according to DigiTimes.
Obviously, we are talking about existing and future solutions of the Dimensity series, which are endowed with an integrated 5G modem. Moreover, MediaTek will be able to supply chips both for relatively inexpensive devices and for models of the upper price segment.
It should be noted that the agreement with Honor on the supply of processors also expects to conclude Qualcomm, one of the main competitors of MediaTek in the corresponding segment. Moreover, Qualcomm and Honor, according to rumors, are already close to signing an agreement.
