Samsung recently unveiled its first ODM smartphone in China. The Samsung Galaxy A6s is the first smartphone not made by Samsung.

ODM or original design manufacturer means the handset was outsourced to another company allowing them to save on costs. In this case, the Galaxy A6s was made by Wintech, the same manufacturers responsible for Xiaomi phones.
