Huawei wants Honor to become the world's fourth-largest smartphone manufacturer

Huawei and Honor have been performing extremely well lately, and today the two brands pushed out a joint press release which outlines their respective goals for the near future.

Firstly, Huawei reaffirmed its objective of becoming the number one smartphone manufacturer worldwide. This goal has been mentioned countless times in the past and Huawei now sits in second place, just behind Samsung. By the end of 2019, though, the brand hopes to overtake Samsung and finally steal the crown it has held since 2012.

The goal for Honor, on the other hand, is to become the fourth largest smartphone manufacturer on a global scale. This means that, if everything goes to plan, the brand will sit ahead of Xiaomi and just behind Apple and Samsung in terms of shipment volumes. 

Another goal Huawei has set for its sub-brand Honor is stealing the title of second largest smartphone manufacturer in China – Huawei currently sits in first place. A timeline for this achievement wasn’t provided, but it’s expected to happen around the same time Honor reaches 4th place globally.

They have the potential to do so, but their name has to go , they need something out there, like Orange, or something with sung in the ending..

I just want Huawei to make a quality product for once that isn't full of Chinese malware.

I've owned several Huawei devices and none had malware. You're clearly lying and biased.

Why do the writers never tell the whole truth in the articles. BBK parent company of Oppo, Vivo & OnePlus combined sales are third biggest smartphone company

I’m wondering why they don’t list BBK as a whole in the rankings, either.

Because the 3 company's are seperate entities that compete against each other despite sharing designs.

That’s a given. But don’t the profits go to BBK at the end? Serious question here.

Yes the profits go to BBK. The easiest way to look at it is by comparing them to the Volkswagen group, they own Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, Skoda, Seat, Bently, Bugatti and more but all compete against each other despite sharing many components. They are all individual entities and car sales are not counted as one company. Firms like Huawei / Honor don't compete against each other but operate as one to cover different parts of the market. It's a hard one to try and explain.

Yeah, it is hard to explain. But I think that since all of the profits go to BBK at the end of the day, they should list BBK as the one entity, imo.
