这笔交易有望提升中国芯片显示产业链竞争力中国显示面板供应商京东方科技集团有限公司投资了国内主要智能手机制造商Honor Device Co Ltd，此举有望加强双方合作，增强中国半导体显示产业链的竞争力，业内专家表示。
According to Tianyancha, a Chinese corporate information provider, Honor has recently completed a new round of strategic financing from six new investors such as BOE, China International Capital Corp Qizhi (Shanghai) Equity Investment Center, Guosen Capital and Shenzhen Baoan District Investment Management Group.
Honor said in a statement on Thursday that the company has been concentrating on "diversifying shareholding structure", and "has always adhered to the principle of openness and collaboration".
As a leading player in China's display panel segment, BOE has 16 semiconductor display production lines across the country and is the core panel supplier for smartphone makers including Huawei, Xiaomi, Honor, Oppo and Vivo.
Chen Jun, deputy general manager and chief analyst of Sigmaintell Consulting, a Beijing-based market research firm, said BOE's investment in Honor is conducive to establishing more stable cooperation between the two partners.
"The display screens, especially the organic light-emitting diodes or OLED screens, are regarded as the core resource for terminal device makers, so BOE's investment will ensure that Honor will obtain its OLED panel supply and strengthen its competitiveness amid fierce competition from domestic rivals," Chen said.
Apart from mobile phones, Honor offers a wide range of terminal devices including tablets, laptops, televisions and wearables, which will provide a large number of orders for BOE, said Zhou Hua, chief analyst at CINNO Research, a Chinese flat-panel display consultancy.

Zhao Ming, CEO of Honor, said Honor's offline retail channels account for more than 70 percent of its total sales, and the company will increase its offline stores from more than 2,000 to about 3,000 within this year.

Honor Device Co Ltd sees this year as a crucial starter to make an ambitious comeback in overseas markets including the Middle East, Europe and the Asia-Pacific, after the former unit of Huawei Technologies Co spent more than a year reviving its popularity in the domestic market.
Meanwhile, the company is ramping up its presence in the personal computer market after its smartphone shipments in China grew 290 percent year-on-year in the first quarter, defying an industry decline of 14 percent, according to data from market research company International Data Corp. Zhao Ming, CEO of Honor, said at an online product launch event on Monday that so far, Honor released smartphones including the Magic 4 Pro and midrange products in the Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific, some European countries and Latin America.
For more than a year since 2020, Honor had nearly no products to sell in overseas markets due to US government restrictions on Huawei.
And in late 2021 when Honor launched its flagship Honor 50 series smartphones overseas, the company－which became fully independent from Huawei in November 2020－still had not fully recovered its critical supplies sourced offshore, Zhao said.
"This year will mark the first year for Honor to fully return to overseas markets," Zhao said, adding that it will take several years for the company to regain its position in the global arena.
The move came after data from IDC showed that Honor was the second-largest smartphone vendor in China from January to March, with shipments reaching 13.5 million units.
But unlike Oppo that posted a 33.5 percent year-on-year decline during the period, Honor registered a surge of 291.7 percent year-on-year.
Honor achieved high year-on-year growth, driven by a low comparison base year and good performance of its Honor 60 and X30 series, which contributed about 60 percent of its shipments.
The launch of Honor Magic 4 also strengthened the company's position in the high-end segment, said IDC.
After regaining strong momentum in smartphones despite an overall industry decline, Honor is setting eyes on the PC market with a string of new products such as MagicBook 14 launched on Monday.
It also unveiled Honor Magic OS for Windows, which the company claimed as a notebook business technology architectural system based on the underlying chips and Microsoft's Windows operating system.
Domestic smartphone maker Oppo took the lead with a market shipment of 13.7 million units in the January-March period, accounting for a 18.5 percent market share, while Honor followed with 13.5 million units.

Chinese tech company Honor Device Co said it is ready to make a big splash in the global high-end smartphone market this year, after the company established cooperation with more than 200 telecom operators and distributors across the world.
The ambition was announced at the company's launch event for its latest premium smartphone, the Honor Magic 4 series, at Mobile World Congress 2022, a major global telecom industry exhibition, which kicked off in Barcelona, Spain, on Monday.
Zhao Ming, CEO of Honor, said the company has more than 11,000 employees, and half of them are in research and development.
According to Zhao, the company's Honor Magic smartphone series is a showcase of the company's innovative technology and a testament to its can-do attitude to constantly challenge industry benchmarks.
The Honor Magic 4 series feature an iconic symmetrical design, and powerful multi-camera photography.
The phones are designed to help Oppo stand out amid intense competition with rival players including Apple Inc and Honor Device Co Ltd. Pete Lau, chief product officer of Oppo, said the only way to truly make valuable innovation is through self-research that goes deep into the bottom layer of communication, chip, and material technologies to solve key problems.
Honor, which became independent from Huawei more than two years ago, surged to become the second largest smartphone vendor in China with a 16.7 percent share of the market.
Sales of domestic mobile phone brands such as Xiaomi, Oppo, Honor and Vivo increased four times on a yearly basis in the first 10 minutes after the clock struck 8 pm on Wednesday, while the turnover of home appliance products like televisions, washing machines and refrigerators exceeded 2 billion yuan within 5 minutes, according to JD.
Honor Device Co Ltd is making big progress toward getting its overseas business back on track, as it officially confirmed that it has resumed cooperation with Google and its new smartphone models overseas will carry Google Mobile Services.
Honor, which gained independence from Huawei last November, said in a post on social networking platform Twitter that it has successfully confirmed cooperation with a number of supplier partners in the early stage.
"The Honor 50 series will be equipped with Google Mobile Services, which will provide a more comprehensive application environment and extraordinary mobile experience for our customers," the company said.
The move marks another important step by Honor to recover its overseas business.
In November, Honor was sold by Huawei Technologies Co to a Chinese consortium of over 30 agents and dealers to ensure the brand's survival after Huawei faced severe constraints due to the persistent unavailability of technical components needed for its mobile phone business.
Experts said resuming cooperation with Google marked an important step for Honor to recover its overseas smartphone business.
Zhao Ming, CEO of Honor, said in an interview in August that "in the future, more Honor products will hit the global market, and our smartphones and tablets will be equipped with GMS in overseas markets".
Zhao said the focus of Honor's overseas business is to quickly restore local operations, channels and retail sales capabilities in overseas markets.
Honor said in September that its share in the Chinese smartphone market had already returned to 16.2 percent.
Last month, Honor also expanded its partnership with US tech heavyweight Microsoft as they are committed to collaborating on Microsoft cloud adoption, personal and mobile computing as well as other technologies.
Microsoft said its resources, technical skills and global reach will also provide strong support for Honor's global expansion.
Honor's workforce now includes some 10,000 employees.
