There is no change in the current situation and it cannot use Qualcomm's 5G technology for now.
There are still uncertainties regarding Huawei and Honor in the smartphone market. Although Honor has no ties to Huawei anymore, we do not yet know how to run its business. With the release of the Snapdragon 888, there were questions regarding Huawei and Honor, especially Honor. Recall that the Honor V40 series will be released in December 2020. However, this may no longer be the case, according to speculation of a new leak in January 2021. The chip of the Honor V40 series will probably not be the Kirin 9000 SoC. There are Dimensity 1000+ reports coming in about this phone, but there is no official confirmation. As of now, brands such as Xiaomi, Realme, ZTE, and Meizu have confirmed they will be using the Snapdragon 888 SoC.
Regarding Honor, Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon says:
“Qualcomm is very pleased with the emergence of a new participant in the market. It will bring more consumption potential to the market and consumers will like it. I love the vitality of the Chinese mobile phone market and hope Honor brings better products. But everything has just begun and we will carry out our dialogues. “
Huawei will not be able to use Qualcomm's 5G chips!
Regarding Huawei, Qualcomm reiterates that its relationship with Huawei is as strong as ever. According to Qualcomm, it has applied for a license to the US government to supply Huawei. However, the approval it received only supports 4G chips, computing and Wi-Fi products. found in the description. "Of course, we hope to have business deals with Huawei on 5G flagship products, but this can only be done after they are approved." He added his words.
For Honor, there seems to be some hope to use American technology. However, we don't know if and when Honor will use the recently released Snapdragon 888 SoC. Still, the situation is very different for Huawei. There is no change in the current situation and it cannot use Qualcomm's 5G technology for now. The company will have to be content with what it has until it does something.
Possible political changes in the US may be some hope for Huawei. However, don't be fooled by this, if there's one thing Trump and Biden have agreed on, it's China's trade situation. However, a Biden-led government will negotiate clearly differently with Huawei and other Chinese companies. The Biden negotiating table may be as difficult as Trump's, but it will also be more political.
