According to the Chinese store (translated here), Honor, which is no longer owned by Huawei, may release a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888-powered smartphone in July.
The rumor comes as a surprise, as Honor CEO George Xiao has already confirmed the company’s plans to launch a flagship phone to compete with Apple and Huawei.

Apparently, the honor will no longer be subject to the same restrictions as Huawei. In January, the new independent company signed agreements with Qualcomm and other component suppliers, including Samsung, Intel, AMD, and Sony. The company is also in talks with Google to bring Android back to its phones.
Honor’s Snapdragon 888 phone will apparently be part of the Magic series and will feature high-end specs.
Today’s report also states that Honor plans to release two flagship phones a year, just as Huawei launched the Mate and P series.
According to an earlier leak, the manufacturer also plans to unveil a foldable smartphone this year, which will also be part of the magic range. Honor will reportedly get the phone’s display from Samsung.
Under Huawei, the Honor was largely focused on affordable handsets, but now it’s taking a new direction. The Snapdragon 888-powered phone will be the company’s first real flagship as a new company, as the recently released Honor V40 5G is powered by MediaTek Dimension 1000 Plus chipset.
The international variant of the handset is set to be released in Europe, and will come with the official version of Google’s Android. This means that the upcoming flagship will also offer a full Android experience.
Lack of components has hampered production of the Snapdragon 888 and could potentially delay Honor’s rumored flagship launch. Honor’s CEO has already said that his company has been affected by the global chip crisis.V #duzline #Honor #Huawei
