Commening on the partnership, Steven Wang, Chief Marketing Officer of Honor disclosed that the company really want to bring our brand to life in ways that appeal to millennials.

Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange”, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, tells the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange who, in his quest for healing after a horrific car accident, finds powerful magic in a mysterious place.

“Doctor Strange” emerged as a natural candidate for a partnership with Honor. The values the title character exhibits – resolve, courage to chart his own course – and the particular relationship he enjoys with technology make him a fitting ambassador for Honor, which strives to empower digital natives through technology.

Millennials are obviously a key demographic group for us, and partnering with Honor allows us to stay at the forefront of technology and to experiment with avenues through which we can reach out to them.
