China's Huawei exhibits over 100 products at 2015 International CES
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6-- Huawei, one of the top Chinese hi-tech brands, exhibited over 100 products at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that opened Tuesday in Las Vegas.
The company also introduced the start of the Hilink era - its strategy to offer fully integrated mobile internet solutions to consumers all around the world - as part of its commitment to bringing the latest technology to consumers and creating extraordinary connected experiences for people everywhere.
"2014 saw our greatest achievements to date. Our strategy of focusing on premium mid- to high-end products has borne fruit, with year-on-year smartphone sales increasing by 30 percent to over 11.8 billion dollars," said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group.
Huawei's global influence has continued to grow as it became the first mainland Chinese company to successfully enter the London-based consultancy Interbrand's Top 100 Global Brands of 2014, he added.
Founded in 1987 and headquartered in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, Huawei replaced Ericsson in 2012 as the world's largest telecommunications equipment maker. In 2014, its smartphone global shipment ranked third in the world.
With 16 R&D centers in countries including Germany, Sweden, the United States, France, Italy, Russia, India and China, the company's products and services have extended to over 170 countries and regions, serving one third of the world's population.
This year's CES, which will be closed Friday, gathered 3,500 exhibitors from all over the world and the number of visitors is expected to reach last year's 150,000.
