Honor secures access to chip supplies after Huawei spinoff

Smartphone maker unveils first handset since splitting from China tech titan

TAIPEI -- Honor, the former budget smartphone arm of Huawei Technologies, says it has secured access to vital chip supplies after it was spun off from its parent last year in a move to shield it from Washington's crackdown on the Chinese tech giant.

Honor on Friday unveiled its first new smartphone since becoming an independent company, saying it plans to expand overseas and break into the premium smartphone segment. The brand is currently sold primarily in China, where it has made a name for itself with affordable phones.
