Who, where and when did the Honor brand existed?
Honor is a smartphone brand that was formerly owned by Huawei Technologies. During the time Honor was formerly owned by Huawei, they assisted with the manufacturing of smartphones, tablets and wearable technology.
Honor headquarters is in Shenzhen, China. Honor was founded since 2013. During these 8 years they work in-hand with Huawei and assisted Huawei to achieve great success. However, this has changed in the year 2020. In November 2020, Honor was acquired by Shezhen Zhixin New Information Technology. This was a result of the pandemic outbreak that occurred in 2020 and the limitations the US placed on the Huawei brand.
Since Honor is now owned by another company besides Huawei, they are allowed to make use of the google mobile services platform. Honor’s current CEO, Zhao Ming, main goal is to surpass Huawei and also compete against Apple smartphone brand.

Here is a table of all the Honor smartphones mentioned above:
Honor is planning on releasing the Honor View 40 in certain countries which is suspected to be a big success since they want to surpass their previous owner Huawei. More of this new series will be discussed in the unbox/review section soon.
I believe Honor is going to make a big impact in the 3rd quarter of the year 2021. Since they are going to stand out as a brand itself and actually compete against their former owner.
However, they will be facing other smartphone competitors that entered in other countries already namely Oppo and Vivo in the first quarter of 2021. Will be interesting to see how the market shift will shift when Honor enters into the market in other countries. We might see a new number one smartphone.
It has been proven before with Nokia and Blackberry as an example. Look where they are now. They are no more in top or even mentioned in the top 10 ranking. Exactly my point, the market keeps changing and Honor might be a new number one. So watch the space.
Hope you enjoyed the post and will consider purchasing an Honor smartphone. If you have any questions or comments, please comment below. Also, you are welcome to follow me on my social links.
