Thus, the manager of the Asian firm affirms that The reasons why mobile brands do not manufacture more white devices are the following:

  • The manufacturing process of a white terminal is more difficult, as it tests the level of CMF (color, material, finish) of each brand and according to Fengshuo “if there is a slight deviation in the craft, the final effect will be completely different, and the texture will be reduced.”
  • Manufacturing white mobiles is not profitable for smartphone brands, since the cost is higher compared to any other color option. In this sense, Fengshuo gave the OnePlus 10 Pro Extreme Edition as an example, for which they needed more than three months of tests to find the perfect white color for this terminal.

  • Finally, the third reason why brands do not bet on white mobiles is that these devices are real magnets for fingerprints and these they are much more noticeable than in terminals of another color. For this reason, according to Fengshuo, when they recovered the white color in the OnePlus 10 Pro Extreme Edition they decided to make a smartphone “extremely white that not only had the transparent texture of glass, but also did not lose the warm touch of ceramic”.
