Qualcomm introduced a new 7-series chipset, the Snapdragon 780G (model number SM7350), which is basically a lite version of the flagship Snapdragon 888. However, the San Diego chip company is working on a slightly downgraded project with model number SM7325 and a rumored name Snapdragon 775G.
The first phone with the new SoC will be Honor 50, at least according to a leakster in China who is usually right with this kind of information.
The Honor 50 smartphone will be the vanilla version in a family of three – the Honor 50 Pro and Honor 50 Pro+ are also expected to arrive with the flagship Snapdragon 888. A timeline of the release is yet unknown, but we expect the phones to be introduced in June and arrive for sale in July when the bottleneck in chipset production opens up.
Working with Qualcomm, an American company, would also most likely mean the Honor 50 will come with Google Services. This will likely bring the now-independent company back in the smartphone game, after it fell out, following Huawei’s collapse, following the trade war between the United States in China.
