Honor global sales
The Honor 8X Series has sold six million units globally. It became the Best Seller in Germany, France, Middle East, North America and South Asia. The smartphone maker, after achieving this grand success, has planned to extend its growing influence in the Southeast Asian countries.
Commenting on the success, George Zhao, President of Honor, said, “I am thrilled that Honor has achieved these unbeatable results even under what has become a tough situation for the global smartphone industry.”
The global smartphone shipments in the third quarter of 2018 represented a 6 per cent year-on-year decline. However, Honor’s strategy and efforts in Research and Development have helped the company to grow in the key areas of smartphone technology innovation such as AI, GPU Turbo, and smartphone design.
Honor’s newly launched Magic2 was another strong sales performer. It was the best-selling smartphone in terms of sales volume and revenue in $580-720 range in online sites. The Honor head further announced about the company’s plan to roll out more promotional festive deals in its global markets ahead of Christmas and New Year.
He added, “We would like to announce that unlike other smartphone brands, Honor will not increase the price of its smartphones this year.”
