Huawei will use 4G Qualcomm Chip: If you’ve been following Huawei you’ll know that the company has been having lots of issues due to the US ban. Surprisingly, the Chinese tech giant has held its ground pretty well. While the Harmony OS 2 is doing well, the company seem to be face with a new challenge.
New report have shown that Huawei won’t be able to use 5G in its smartphones anytime soon. And the company will be using an exclusive 4G Qualcomm chip in its incoming flagship smartphones – Here is why.

The main technology of the core filter in the 5G radio frequency chip comes from the United States. This means, Huawei needs the US to be able to make its own 5G processors. But, the US ban is still very much in place and this is why Huawei has no option but to settle for only 4G chips.
Huawei’ rotating chairman Xu Zhijun had earlier stated that the company is facing challenges with its smartphone business. 5G is among these challenges and its users won’t be able to Huawei 5G smartphones for a while. But, Xu Zhijun also stated clearly that the company won’t be selling its smartphone business and won’t abandon smartphone production.

He further said that Huawei is working hard to get the mobile phone business back on track in due course. He said, “It may take a few years to work hard to allow users to buy Huawei 5G mobile phones“.
According to a new report by popular Weibo leakster, @ChanganDigitalKing, Huawei will exclusively use the 4G version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 chip in its flagship smartphones.

The flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 SoC will use Samsung’s 4nm manufacturing process. And the new Qualcomm chip will feature a three-cluster CPU design. The CPU cores and specifications are: 1 x 3.0GHz Cortex X2 super large core + 3 x 2.5GHz Cortex A78 large core + 4 x 1.79GHz Cortex A55 small core.
It appears Huawei is out of when it comes to its Kirin 9000 5G chip. And with no access to 5G technology, we don’t see them making 5G chip anytime soon. This is why rumors are saying the company has moved the release of the Huawei Mate 50 to next year.

So, without access to 5G technology and exhausting the Kirin 9000 5G chip in its inventory, we can only expect 4G smartphones from Huawei at this point. But, the company has optimized its Harmony OS to load faster and work smooth.
This is meant to bring improved performance when using a Huawei phone running on Harmony OS. So far, about 120 Million Huawei and Honor devices has got the HarmonyOS 2 installed. The company expect the numbers to hit 300 million by the end of the year.
How will Huawei navigate its way to bring 5G technology to its smartphones? We just have to wait and see.
