After Qualcomm reportedly started cooperating with Honor for chip supply, it seems like MediaTek will soon follow suit as well, after the Chinese smartphone maker separated from its former parent company Huawei.

Earlier today (7th January 2020), the chipmaker told Yicai that as a global smartphone chipset supplier, MediaTek aims to cooperate with various smartphone OEMs and vendors and will seek to bring its leading technology to its customers and consumers across the globe. The company said that “At present, Honor is a newly established independent company, and we are evaluating the current situation.”

This also arrives amid reports surfacing of Honor already working with ODM manufacturers for its upcoming products, right after its independence from Huawei. These rumored devices will apparently run with MediaTek’s latest chipsets, although, the company has yet to respond to this matter. The report also claims that the company is expected to launch MediaTek powered Honor smartphones by mid 2021.

Just yesterday, it was reported that Qualcomm and Honor are cooperating to resume the chip supply. The American chipmaker will now be able to supply Honor as the latter is not in the US Entity list and no longer falls under Huawei. However, the report also claimed that a large supply of chips will have to wait till at least the second quarter of 2021. As per a research report, the resumption in supply would grow MediaTek’s (chip) and Honor’s (smartphones) shipments in China and overseas market, but the former is still evaluating the brand’s performance in both areas.
