Two models from the Honor 50 series will finally be available at the european market, with Google services. These are the first smartphones of the company to get rid of the sanctions imposed by the United States during Donald Trump’s term on its former parent, Huawei.

Those restrictions greatly limited the appeal of Honor terminals outside of China. Well, these, in addition to the Google applications, prevented the functioning of the apps that the Google Play Services needed.

Of the three models presented in China, including a Pro, only two variants will arrive in Europe. We talk about Honor 50 and Honor 50 Lite. The latter, according to GSMArenaIt is apparently based on the Huawei Nova 8i and should not be confused with the Honor 50 SE.

These mobiles, in addition, have Snapdragon processors, something that had not happened to date, as the former sub-brand of Huawei always used HiSilion processors, designed in-house. But at the end of 2020, when it had already become independent, it turned out that it was negotiating with the American chipmaker.
