Honor’s VP: Competition between Huawei & Xiaomi is over

On January 3, Xiaomi announced the independence of its Redmi sub-brand just as the Honor sub-brand of Huawei is independent. Redmi will hold a conference on January 10 for the official announcement. This move by Xiaomi raised speculations that the Redmi brand will take on Honor. Xiong Junmin, vice president (product) of Honor’s business department, subsequently said that the competition between Honor and Xiaomi has already ended.  His words

The competition between Honor and Xiaomi has long ended. Whether it is the overall sales volume or the market performance of the mid-to-high-end product line, Honor has already been far ahead.” 

He also claimed that from the overall flagship series sales of three consecutive generations (Honor 8, Honor 9, and Honor 10), the company has been ahead of Xiaomi who also released  Xiaomi Mi 5, Xiaomi Mi 6 and Xiaomi Mi 8.

      My wife’s got the V10. Bought the V10 instead of the H10 as it’s got almost the same camera, got expandable storage and cheaper. Comparing pictures, mi8 is better. Definitely so in low light. If I’m not mistaken mi 8 has a higher DxO mark.
