Chinese technology firms shine at CES

CHINESE technology companies shone at the Consumer Electronics Show with their cutting-edge products including drones that can assess emergency situations, Shanghai Daily learned yesterday.

More than a third of the 4,119 exhibitors at CES, the world’s biggest consumer electronics show held in Las Vegas, came from China, including Huawei Technologies, ZTE Corp and Letv.

Shenzhen-based DJI, a global drone market leader, displayed two upgraded flagship drones with new features like super high-resolution (4K) cameras and ultrasonic sensors at CES.

DJI also said it will cooperate with Ford to create drones that can assess emergency situations, transmit information back and then return and autonomously land on Ford trucks that they launch from.

Shenzhen-based Huawei, which became the world’s No. 3 smartphone vendor in 2015, launched its new flagship model Mate 8 at CES, one month after its debut in Shanghai.

In the past month, Huawei has sold 1 million Mate 8 smartphones that come with a large screen, fingerprint recognition and a longer battery life. The company aims to challenge market leaders Apple and Samsung, Huawei’s consumer business group head Yu Chengdong said at CES.

ZTE plans a new community targeting US consumers called CSX (community-sourced X) to help the company develop smartphones based on feedback from the community.
