Honor managed to bypass Xiaomi in the largest smartphone market

Published

on

According to Counterpoint Research, in August 2021, Honor managed to surpass Xiaomi in terms of smartphone sales in China and become the third largest brand in that market. In just one month, Honor’s smartphone sales in China rose 18%, one of the best growth rates ever.

Commenting on Honor’s success in the world’s largest smartphone market, Counterpoint Research’s director of research Tarun Pathak said, “After separating from Huawei, Honor has been able to re-establish links with component suppliers. From now on, using its strong R&D capabilities, the company has released new products and is on track for rapid recovery in China. The Honor 50 series was an instant success in the mid-range segment. Honor is also targeting the premium segment with the Magic Series, expanding its portfolio in price ranges. There is also pent-up demand from loyal Huawei and Honor consumers who have kept their devices and have not switched to other brands. Strong relationships with distributors have also helped promote Honor on a large scale. The resurgence of Honor will further intensify competition in the Chinese market in the second half of 2021. ”

Describing the competitive landscape, analysts note that Oppo, vivo and Xiaomi are actively expanding their presence in China, expanding the range, while Apple with the release of the iPhone 13 series has a good opportunity to get hold of the premium segment previously owned by Huawei. This suggests that competition is intensifying, in which the expansion of Honor may be hindered by an aggravating shortage of components. It remains to add that Honor is betting not only on smartphones, but also on other products, including laptops, tablets and wearables.

Smartphones are to blame Nikon and Panasonic have stopped the

Japanese companies Nikon and Panasonic have stopped making low-cost compact digital cameras and will now focus on more expensive mirrorless cameras.

The reason is partly due to smartphones, which are increasingly focusing on quality cameras. Global shipments of compact digital cameras are down 97% from 2008 to just 3.01 million units in 2021 as smartphone cameras get better and smarter.

Nikon has suspended the development of new compact models of its Coolpix line. Nikon currently only offers two models with quality lenses, but the company is “closely monitoring market trends” to determine future production volumes.

Nikon has already stopped making DSLRs to specialize in high-end single-lens mirrorless models. According to Nikkei Asia, the company will focus resources on mirrorless cameras, which have been made popular by more advanced digital technologies.

Panasonic Holdings “has not launched any new products in the price range below $370 since 2019 and has no plans to develop low-cost models in the future.” “We have stopped development of any new models that can be replaced by a smartphone,” a company spokesman said.

Going forward, Panasonic will produce high quality mirrorless cameras for photography enthusiasts. The company plans to launch a mirrorless camera with the German company Leica Camera.

Previously, Fujifilm stopped production of its FinePix compact cameras. Canon hasn’t released a new Ixy camera since 2017. The Sony Group has also not offered any new compact models under its Cyber-shot brand since 2019, and Casio Computer stopped making Exilim cameras in 2018.
