Qualcomm may have been given the greenlight to sell chipsets to Huawei


Because of the approvals forced on Huawei by the US government, it implies that Huawei won't have the option to work with US organizations and the other way around. It likewise implied that non-US organizations that depend on US innovation won't be permitted to work with Huawei, which puts Huawei stuck somewhat of an imbroglio, particularly on the chipset front.


There is some uplifting news for Huawei and fanatics of Huawei on the grounds that as per a report out of China, it asserts that Qualcomm has clearly been given the greenlight to feel free to flexibly chipsets to Huawei, however the catch is that this will possibly work if Huawei auctions its Honor image as evidently Qualcomm doesn't have the ability to gracefully to both Huawei and Honor


Taking into account that we have as of late heard gossipy tidbits that Huawei has sold or is currently auctioning off Honor to the neighborhood Shenzhen government and a consortium of Chinese organizations, this could work out. It will likewise be a somewhat intriguing situation in light of the fact that Huawei, similar to Apple and Samsung, have built up their own chipsets for their cell phones.


This move would basically constrain Huawei to depend on Qualcomm, in any event for now until the authorizations are lifted, or if Huawei figures out how to continue assembling of its own Kirin chipsets.

Exynos-powered Samsung Galaxy S21


One of the complains that Samsung clients have had as of late is that the Exynos variations of the organization's lead telephones appear to fail to meet expectations contrasted with the Qualcomm variants. The irritated is justifiable in light of the fact that clients are basically following through on a similar cost, despite the fact that for this situation, Exynos clients are getting "less".


Fortunately with the Samsung Galaxy S21, apparently the Exynos variations could really beat those controlled by Qualcomm. This is as indicated by a tweet by Ice Universe who shared what seems, by all accounts, to be benchmark results for the Exynos 2100, and how it might beat the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 as far as execution.


Both chipsets are said to utilize the Cortex-X1 as the essential center, yet clearly Samsung's customizations in the Exynos 2100 could permit it to pull in front of the Snapdragon 875. While this is uplifting news, assuming valid, Samsung will currently have another issue on their hands where clients with the Qualcomm variation probably won't be excessively satisfied by this.


There have been bits of gossip proposing that Samsung could really open up its Exynos chipsets to more handset producers one year from now, so if the benchmarks are precise, it would appear that Qualcomm could have stiffer rivalry to anticipate. The way things are, Qualcomm is pretty much the default chipset of decision for some cell phones, yet if Samsung somehow managed to step their game up, we could be taking a gander at more varieties in 2021.




A whole long list of SD 865 smartphones are going to arrive soon, so hold on to your purse and don't waste your money on current gen flagship smartphones just yet, because they are going to become a lot cheaper in a matter of weeks!


To give you an idea of what's to come, we have compiled a short list of the three highly anticipated Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 powered smartphones which will be the first to reach consumers.


Samsung Galaxy S20 Series




No one can say for sure whether the S20-series will really be the first smartphones to get to the market, with a SD 865 SoC in them, but rumors surrounding Samsung are almost always true these days! The Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra mau also have the following specs to show off later in the month.


·        OS: Android 10 (Q)

·        1440 x 3040, S AMOLED, 6.2"/6.7"/6.9"/ QHD+, 20:9 display

·        8GB - 12GB RAM and 128GB - 1TB internal storage

·        64+13+8 megapixel / 64+13+8+2 megapixel rear cameras on the S20 and S20 Plus respectively

·        108+13+8+2 megapixel setup at the back with 5x optical zoom on the S20 Ultra

·        5,000mAh battery

·        Will be announced at the Unpacked 2020 event on February 11, 2020 in San Francisco


Xiaomi Mi 10 Series




Also coming in February, but probably in the last week is Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. Other interesting rumors about the 5G capable duo are as follows.


·        OS: Android 10 (Q)

·        1080 x 2340, 19.5:9, S AMOLED 6.39" / 6.7", 120Hz display

·        128GB storage & 8GB RAM / 256GB storage & 12GB RAM / 512GB Storage & 16GB RAM

·        108 + 16 + 12 + 5 / 108 + 16 + 12 + 8 megapixel rear cam modules with 2x optical zoom (Mi 10 & Mi 10 Pro respectively)

·        4,500mAh / 5,250mAh battery for the Mi 10 and 10 Pro respectively

·        Will be announced in late February


Vivo IQoo




This one will likely be a timed exclusive in India, and this move could make the new sub-brand of Vivo, the first OEM to release a Snapdragon 865 powered smartphone in the country. Not much else is known about the smartphone, but it is rumored to have impressive flagship specs such as a 120Hz display and 64+12+12+8 megapixel rear camera modules to go along with that flagship SoC as well. 


As of now, it is expected that the Snapdragon 865 chip with its brand new Cortex A77 - powered Kryo 585 cores will finally be able to close the huge performance gap that exists between Apple's latest A-series chips and anything that any Android OEM is able to churn up. Of course, we will just have to wait and see how that actually turns out!

·         802.11ac Wi-Fi with up to a 16 times faster connection setup, simultaneous dual-band support, and 30% more capacity utilization

If all this didn't blow you over, don't worry because there's a lot more and you can check it all out in details at Android Authority.

After a number of leaks started predicting that flagship smartphones released during the latter half of the year will be sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 chip, almost everyone thought that the Qualcomm was going to do the same thing it did last year when it released a faster version of the SD 820 SOC; the SD 821. However, now that both the Galaxy Note 8 and the Pixel 2 (more or less) has been confirmed to sport the SD 835 chip, we can rest assured that it was indeed a myth.

If you are disappointed, know that there is no reason to be! After all, the SD 835 is a very capable chip and until the SD 845 comes out next year, it will continue to be one of the most powerful smartphone chips ever created. Also, it makes absolutely no sense to release two flagship chips in the same year, unless there's anything wrong with the first one. Since the Snapdragon 835 is as close to perfection as it can be both in terms of power usage and performance, we would say that there's nothing to worry about at all.
