To keep Honor from dying and keep it competitive in the market, Huawei sold the brand. Already in the rank of independent, it can return to cooperation with American companies, where the most important are Google and Qualcomm. It seems that the plan worked and Honor will continue to fight in the market on an equal term with its rivals.
The time that has passed since independence, Honor has spent trying to sort out all the formalities and conclude new contracts. It is already known for sure that Qualcomm will begin shipping its chips to Honor. All that remained was to agree with Google to install the GSM version of Android; and you could get involved in a fight in the smartphone market. And the Chinese succeeded.
It was reported that Honor smartphones will be available in the global market with Google services. And these are not rumors, or someone’s speculation. The information is official and comes from the German division of the company. In particular, in one of the threads discussing the future Honor smartphone with the Snapdragon 778G chip; the user asked bluntly: will Google services appear in the company’s devices. And the press service of the manufacturer reacted by confirming the appearance of Google services in Honor smartphones.
Well, it looks like the Honor 50 series will herald the return of the GSM version of Android to the company’s smartphones.
