According to new rumors from China, Huawei will soon have access to Qualcomm's 5G chip. The United States has reportedly relaxed its export rules and Qualcomm may be allowed to supply a 5G SoC to Huawei.

Huawei may soon have access to Qualcomm's 5G SoC, according to new rumors

Please note that these are just rumors at this point. Huawei has said nothing about this, nor the United States. Before this change, Huawei still had problems with SoCs for its smartphones.

It's no secret that Huawei hasn't had access to its 5G processor for years, and the same goes for installing Google services on its phones. These are all restrictions imposed by the United States.

In 2019, the United States listed Huawei as a company, preventing it from entering American supply chains. In 2020, the United States expanded its export regulations, which prevents chipmakers that use American technology to produce processors from supplying products to Huawei.

Huawei uses Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 in its phones, but limited to 4G

As a result, Huawei cannot use 5G processors, but still uses Qualcomm chips. For example, Huawei Mate 50 Pro and Huawei P60 series use Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.

Last year, it was Qualcomm's flagship SoC that supported 5G connectivity. However, this feature has been removed from Huawei smartphones. However, 4G is still available.

Needless to say, the US restrictions have had little impact on Huawei. The company is on track to become the world's leading smartphone OEM before that happens. Now he can no longer use the 5G SoC or install Google services on his device.

If these rumors become known, one of Huawei's biggest problems will be solved. It remains to be seen if there is any truth to this.

News from Huawei that it might have access to Qualcomm's 5G chip was the first to hit Android headlines.
