Honor aims to always touch the heart? Canon Chairman considers collaborating with smartphone manufacturers

Honor strives to touch the heart Canon Chairman ponders teaming up with smartphone makers

【PhoneAuto News】Recently, PhoneAuto noticed that Hideki Ozawa, the chairman of Canon China, said in an interview that we have seen the trend of cooperation between smartphone manufacturers and camera manufacturers, and we have also been studying this matter. As for when to take further action, this still needs to be considered and further decided. Since we have already noticed this trend of the times, we will also make our own independent judgments according to the requirements of the times.

Canon EOS R6 Mark II mirrorless camera

Currently, Canon is the most familiar digital camera brand for most ordinary consumers. Many years ago, the memorable slogan “delighting you always” must have been deeply remembered by many people. According to statistics from Nikkei News, in 2021, Canon accounted for approximately 45.8% of the global digital camera (including SLR and mirrorless, etc.) market. In comparison, Canon’s competitors such as Sony (27%), Nikon (11.3%), Fujifilm (5.9%), and Panasonic (4.4%) all have a considerable gap with it.

At the same time, according to the information obtained by PhoneAuto, Canon expects global interchangeable lens camera sales to be around 5.5 to 6 million units in 2023. Among them, mirrorless cameras are expected to account for more than 70% of the market share. Canon also stated that they will continue to maintain their position as the first in the interchangeable lens camera market share, and strive to become the first in the mirrorless camera market share. In 2024, Canon may release their flagship mirrorless camera EOS R1.

Currently, among the mainstream smartphone manufacturers in China, Xiaomi, OPPO, OnePlus, and vivo have all reached cooperation with brands such as Leica, Hasselblad, and Zeiss. Huawei also has its own imaging brand. Therefore, Canon’s cooperation partner may be Honor or realme. However, the latter two have not announced any relevant information yet.
