Innovation leads the way: Chinese consumer electronics brands continue to empower

The global industrial Internet is in a period of rapid expansion. To promote the high-quality development of the manufacturing industry, the cross-industry capabilities of the industrial Internet are particularly important. Taking Haier COSMOPlat, which has won the "Global Leading Industrial Internet Ecological Brand" as an example, it has seven major functional modules such as user interaction, R & D, marketing, procurement, manufacturing, logistics, and service. It transforms the hardware experience into a scene experience. Users have changed from passive consumers to participating creators, and the company has changed from self-centered to user-centered. In response to the challenges of the times, Haier actively embraced the Industrial Internet, helped accelerate the upgrade of the Internet of Things, empowered enterprises, and brought industrial scene solutions such as scale innovation, technological innovation, and ecological innovation in all scenarios.

Relying on the core technologies accumulated in the fields of display, sensing, AI and big data during the years of business development, BOE has built IoT platforms for new retail, transportation, finance, art and other fields for many years, providing "hardware products + software Platform + Scenario Application". In this selection, BOE won the "Gold Award for Innovative Application of Display Products" with BOE Picture Screen S3, which promoted the vigorous development of the Internet of Things.

Mr. Li Dong, Chairman and CEO of TCL Group, once said: To achieve high-quality development in China's display industry, independent innovation is the key. He believes that fostering core competitiveness and extending to the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain can achieve higher quality development. In the past year, TCL has also used actual actions to provide users with a better experience: its products X9 QLED 8K TV and TCL NXTVISION™ won the "8K QLED TV Gold Award" and "Innovative Visual Display Technology Award" respectively. As the third largest TV manufacturer in the world, TCL is still based on insight into consumers' real needs and combines its own technological innovation strength to create products.

Providing customized and complete smart home application solutions for users is the future and trend of the home appliance industry. Changhong relies on the IoT operation platform and IPP technology framework to continue to implement smart home applications. Its products CHiQ 65Q7ART 8K and CHiQ C8UT have won the "Golden Family Ecology Experience Annual Award" and "Global Annual Laser Display Technology Award" respectively. Changhong smart home application solutions will be continuously improved and enriched to provide consumers with the perfect CHiQ-life life experience .

According to IDC data, total global wearable device shipments in the third quarter of 2019 were 84.5 million, an increase of 94.6% year-on-year, setting a new single-quarter shipment. At the same time, with the upgrading of consumption and the gradual popularization of AI, VR, AR and other technologies, the functions of wearable devices have gradually diversified. Huami Corporation won the "Most Worthy of Smart Wearable Innovation Enterprise" in this selection. In 2019, it launched a variety of wearable devices such as Amazfit Smart Sports Watch 3, Amazfit Smart Sports Watch 3 Elite Edition, and also released new products Amazfit GTS, its Amazfit PowerBuds, also won the "Best True Wireless Sports Headphones" award.

It won the "AI Connected Innovation Award" in this selection, and Hachi is poised to take off in the smart home industry.

With the gradual commercialization of 5G networks, the Honor V30, released by HUAWEI's technology tide brand Honor at the end of 2019, will undoubtedly start the "first shot" of the 5G mobile phone war. Smart phones are the biggest driving force for the development of 5G. The appearance of Honor V30 has promoted the development of 5G networks to a certain extent. The superior performance of the Honor V30 brings a wealth of application scenarios, such as low-latency cloud storage of high-definition images, real-time VR extreme sports, synchronized holographic concerts, etc. The core hardware is equipped with the most sophisticated HUAWEI Kirin 990 5G chip currently designed.  Adopts dual-camera eye-screen, with a screen resolution of 2400 * 1080 pixels.
