In the past two years, Huawei has gained a firm foothold in the high-end mobile phone market with its flagship phones of P-Series and mate series. In the past, Huawei would release its flagship of P-Series in March / April and Mate Series in September / October every year.
But up to now, Huawei's P50 series has not been released, which makes many users concerned about Huawei anxious.
A few days ago, a digital blogger revealed that Qualcomm is planning to launch the 4G version of snapdragon 888 processor, mainly for mobile phone manufacturers subject to U.S. sanctions.
This means that Qualcomm may launch a 4G version of snapdragon 888 processor for Huawei. Of course, Huawei P50 series will also launch 5g version with Kirin 9000 series chips, but the supply situation is difficult to guarantee.
In the past two years, with Huawei's continuous progress in the field of self-developed chips, in addition to high-end flagship mobile phones, low-end mobile phones also use their own chips.
Although Huawei has been focusing on the promotion of self-developed processors in recent years, Huawei has long cooperated with Qualcomm. For example, snapdragon 4 series and snapdragon 6 series chips have frequently appeared in Huawei's low-end mobile phones.
However, Huawei is now facing US sanctions. The self-developed Kirin chips cannot be OEM, and the inventory of Kirin 9000 chips is not optimistic. If Huawei wants to find a way out, it is bound to choose to cooperate with other semiconductor suppliers.
When Qualcomm released its third quarter results last year, it announced a major news:Huawei has reached a long-term patent agreement with Qualcomm, which will receive a $1.8 billion recovery payment from Huawei in the fourth quarter.
In other words, the patent dispute between Huawei and Qualcomm has reached a settlement, which has laid a foundation for the subsequent cooperation between the two sides.
Soon after, it came that Qualcomm was licensed to supply to Huawei, but only 4G chips.Although it is a 4G chip, it is also a timely help for Huawei and a icing on the cake for Qualcomm. The cooperation between the two sides is win-win.
In fact, at the recent full scene new product launch held by Huawei, Huawei's matepad pro and Huawei's matepad 11 series, two tablet computers, were released with the adoption of Qualcomm processors, namely, snapdragon 870 and snapdragon 865.
This may be an announcement for Huawei's P50 series to adopt high pass chips, butIn view of Huawei's flagship positioning of P50 series, it is very possible to adopt the 4G version of Qualcomm snapdragon 888.
Gains and losses of Huawei P50
In the past, Huawei's P-Series and mate series mobile phones used to use Huawei's self-developed Kirin chip. If Huawei's P50 series uses Qualcomm chip, it will be different.
However, it is expected that Huawei P50 series with snapdragon 888 chip will perform well in games. After all, snapdragon 888 has powerful image processing capability.
In terms of supply, as the world's top chip supplier, as long as the supply license is always in place, there should be no problem for Qualcomm to supply chips to China. With the help of Qualcomm, the 4G version of Huawei P50 series will also avoid the situation that one machine is hard to get.
But don't worry about user experience. Huawei's matepad pro, which is equipped with Qualcomm chips, was released by Huawei before,From the feedback of users, the experience is not bad. It is reported that Huawei has made a lot of adaptations for Qualcomm and harmony OS.
Moreover, Huawei's P50 series has not been released for a long time, and it may also be equipped with high pass chips on mobile phones. Therefore, we have reason to believe that Huawei's P50 series equipped with high pass chips will also have a good performance.
Sunshine always comes after the rain
Even though Huawei's mobile phone business is facing unprecedented challenges, Huawei has not given up its mobile phone business.
Although it is in the 5g replacement period now, the experience difference between 4G mobile phone and 5g mobile phone is not big in a short time, so as long as the price of Huawei P50 4G version is favorable enough, I believe the sales volume should not be a problem.
