TL;DR
  • Honor has revealed that it will be using the ‘most premium Qualcomm chipset’ for a new Honor Magic line.
  • The Snapdragon 888 is the most premium processor in Qualcomm’s mobile portfolio.

Qualcomm and Honor announced earlier this week that the Honor 50 series would be equipped with the newly announced Snapdragon 778G processor. But what if you want an Honor phone with more grunt? Well, the newly independent manufacturer has news for you.

Honor detailed its use of Qualcomm chipsets in an emailed press release today, reiterating its use of the Snapdragon 778G in its Honor 50 phones. But it also confirmed (in a roundabout way) that it would be using the Snapdragon 888 SoC in the Honor Magic series.

“Additionally, the Honor Magic series, an upcoming premium flagship product featuring superb imaging quality, will leverage the most premium Qualcomm chipset to unleash the remarkable image processing capabilities,” the company explained. Of course, the “most premium” processor in Qualcomm’s stable is the Snapdragon 888.

We’re also glad to see the return of the Honor Magic line, with 2018’s Honor Magic 2 being the last device in the range. The original Honor Magic boasted a rather striking curved design, while the successor offered a slick slider design and 3D face unlock. So we look forward to seeing what the new series will offer in terms of design and features.

Honor confirmed that it would reveal more details about its upcoming devices next month, so we don’t have too long to wait. Here’s hoping these phones see a wider release.
