BKAV Electronics, a subsidiary of BKAV, will stop operation and merge with the holding company. However, BKAV said this won’t affect the group’s plan to develop smartphones.
Mobiistar, Vsmart and Bphone in recent years have been trying to enter the world market, but their stories and results have varied.
Nguyen Tu Quang, CEO of Bach Khoa Corporation (BKAV), the manufacturer of BPhone, said BPhone is being attacked by ‘people who receive money from foreign brands’.
After a lot of failed efforts, Vietnam’s smartphone products now have a great opportunity to return to the market.
BKAV's smartphone Bphone B86 failed to reach Google's Play Protect certificate due to Google's demand that at least a million devices be sold each year.
Bkav Technology Group officially launched their latest series of Bphones in Hanoi on May 10, including the Bphone B40, B60, B86, and B86s models, the latest high-end smartphones which have been locally produced by the company.
Analysts believe that an agreement between Viettel, a mobile network operator, and Vsmart, a mobile phone manufacturer, could drive Chinese smartphones into a corner.
Apple and Samsung are now controlling the high-end smartphone market segments. Other brands have disappeared.
