On Nov. 23, smart device maker Honor rolled out its 1 millionth foldable smartphone of this year at the Honor Intelligent Manufacturing Industrial Park in Pingshan District.
“When the lifecycle planning of a single series reaches 1 million units (as is the case with Chinese foldable smartphones), this indicates that the technology has transitioned into the productization stage,” U.K. research website Omdia commented in an article about Honor’s achievement.
“Reviewing the trajectory of Chinese brands in the foldable smartphone landscape, progressing from single models in the 100,000–200,000 range to the 300,000–500,000 range signifies their journey from 0 to 1 in both product and market endeavors. They are gradually moving from a laboratory stage to a market trial stage,” Omdia wrote in the article.
