Chinese giant Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu will deliver Opening Keynote at IFA 2019. Huawei will present the most powerful, intelligent user experience and share Huawei’s exploration on future connectivity and strategy in AI, 5G, IoT and new smart devices. The much awaited keynote address comes amidst turmoil between western governments and the Chinese company which seems to have escalated following arrest of Meng Wanzhou Huawei’ s CFO and daughter of Ren Zhengfei, founder of the company.
Jens Heithecker, IFA Executive Director believes, since the ultimate goal is to provide a full scenario intelligent solution and offer a better user experience to consumers in the future intelligent world, there could be no better person than Richard Yu Chengdong to enrich the discussions with Huawei’s commitment to turning smart devices into intelligent devices by building end-to end capabilities that support coordinated development of devices.
