I would explain it as:
http://schema.org/Product  is really "Product Category Offered".  You could
also think "Product Class Offered" or "Product Group Offered" if it helps.

beneath that you might have 5 laptops that you are offering to sell as a
product... so each one....is an  http://schema.org/IndividualProduct

Fairphone is definitely a http://schema.org/Product   each individual one
(with it's unique IMEI code) is a http://schema.org/IndividualProduct

You can also say:
http://schema.org/IndividualProduct can be registered by users using their
IMEI, Serial #, etc... something that uniquely ties that individual product
to that customer.

Only put things that are individually unique for a particular IMEI, Serial
#, etc... against the http://schema.org/IndividualProduct
One thing that you can put against that http://schema.org/IndividualProduct
is actually a chipset firmware version ... because sometimes some folks get
version A1 and later on in production the rest of the users might be
getting version A2, etc... if you have that kind of data...that would go
under http://schema.org/IndividualProduct  rather than saying ALL your
Fairphones have version A2 by putting ia firmware version under
http://schema.org/Product
