Wang Yinfeng, President of PC and Tablet Product Line, Huawei Consumer BG, said:
Interconnection and interoperability between PCs and smartphones allow consumers to enjoy a seamless one-stop user experiences. Together, they are a key pillar supporting the all-scenario ecosystem, and by extension, Huawei’s all-scenario strategy. On the other hand, we are also witnessing a change in consumer behaviors—whereas in the past they may look for PCs that are of good value, they are now gravitating toward more premium products.
