The company is expected to announce the upcoming new products at this event.
Zhao Ming said the company’s goal is to become the leading smartphone brand in China, surpassing its former parent company and current Chinese market leader Huawei. He also set an ambitious goal to sell 100 million smartphones next year.
Honor is currently in the process of tidying up its supply chain as well as expanding the brand’s presence in the retail market. The company has already opened stores in cities such as Chengdu, Lanzhou, Wuhan, and Xiamen and plans to continue opening new stores.
