Honor exec on Redmi’s spec mishap: No big deal, no apology needed

Redmi’s Mishap at the Redmi Turbo 3 Launch Event

On April 11th, at the unveiling event of the Redmi Turbo 3, an inadvertent mistake occurred. Redmi mistakenly labeled the processor of the Honor 100 Pro as the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 instead of the third-generation Snapdragon 7. This error brought back memories of a similar incident at the launch event of the Zhi Ji L6, where Xiaomi SU7 specifications were inaccurately labeled, prompting Zhi Ji to apologize to Xiaomi three times consecutively.

However, Redmi promptly acknowledged this mistake, and the brand’s general manager, Wang Teng, directly apologized at the event.

Following this, the product manager of Honor, Wei Xiaolong, posted on Weibo, stating, “There’s no need to apologize three times.” He further clarified that the Honor 100 Pro actually utilizes the second-generation Snapdragon 8 flagship chipset. The fifth model, the Honor X50 GT, adopts the Snapdragon 8 + chipset with turbo performance, turbo-grade durability against falls, and a massive 5800mAh battery for extended usage. This is the flagship model benchmarked against competitors.

IT House noticed that Honor’s CMO, Jiang Hairong, also commented on the matter. He shared relevant Weibo posts, pointing out that many announcements circulating online claiming Honor demanded apologies from competitors were manipulated. For such minor incidents, there’s no need to insist on a genuine apology. Jiang Hairong emphasized that this incident serves as a reminder for Honor to learn from, urging the company to focus on its own endeavors and contribute to the healthy development of the Chinese smartphone industry through fair market competition.
