Over the past few weeks, there have been a couple of speculations regarding the Honor 50 series. These smartphones will be Honor’s “first” independent flagship after its independence from Huawei. The Honor 50 series will be the first because the Honor V40 released in January was already set for release before the sale of Honor. The latest information on the Honor 50 series centers on its processor.
According to popular Weibo leakster, @DCS, the Honor 50 series will use a new Qualcomm chip. This processor is in the Snapdragon 7 series and its codename (or development number) is SM7325. The Snapdragon 7 series platform is a 5G mobile platform officially launched by Qualcomm on September 22, 2020. It aims to provide 5G capabilities for the global market, an excellent HDR gaming experience, and excellent terminals for strong AI performance.
According to Roland Quandt, Snapdragon 775 codename is SM7350-AA while Snapdragon 775G is SM7350-AB. These chips may officially arrive this year. In addition to these two mid-to-high-end platforms, Qualcomm has also prepared an additional chip with codename SM7325. It is a mid-range processor.
According to recent reports, Chinese manufacturer, Honor is currently working on its latest flagship. The reports so far claim that the Honor 50 series will arrive in the first half of this year. However, there are rumors that this device will launch in early June. The latest information regarding this series is with regard to its fast-charging capacity.
