Huawei recently scrapped its Honor sub-brand in a deal that involved about $ 15 billion. Now that Honor is out of the Chinese giant’s reach, it was already expected that some things would change on their devices.
The first change of background seems to be already determined and is related to the heart of smartphones. According to the well-known leaker Digital Chat Station, the Honor V40 line will be fully supported by MediaTek processors.
Nova Honor turns to China and will use MediaTek processors
One of the reasons that led Huawei to sell Honor was the restrictions imposed by the USA. With limited units of its own Kirin processors, Huawei wanted to focus on its branded equipment.
So it would be expected that Honor’s future would not pass through the Kirin. This opened the door to the use of Snapdragon processors, but this does not seem to have been the path chosen by the new Honor owner.
Therefore, the first Honor smartphone line outside Huawei’s domain will only use processors developed by MediaTek. Components that despite the deep-seated suspicions, especially in the western markets, have proven to be relevant and capable in recent months.
Honor V40 will arrive only in 2021
Honor V line is usually presented at the end of each year, however, the change in management also led to a change in the calendar. With the transition to Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology Co. Ltd, the launch of this equipment will have been postponed until January 2021.
If this is true, it will not be long before more details about this equipment are made public. I believe that this line will generate more interest in the market than previously due to the change in management and what this will imply in their equipment.
