4 China tech innovators beyond Xiaomi Posted on April 5, 2017 by Jason Li Found this great mini-tweetstorm by Krish Raghev earlier: When people think “Chinese tech”, most start and end at Xiaomi. But there are so many better, cooler brands here! here’s a few I like: Smartisan 锤子 are a cult brand with an enigmatic founder. They make supremely nice Android phones. I use their flagship M1 and love it. Hasee aka 神舟 make gaming laptops in a fierce market that includes QRtech and Shinelon. No harder demographic to please than CN gamers. Sure, you can dismiss them as copycats and knockoffs, but then you risk overlooking the genuine “innovation” that goes into CN products. Others of note: Vinci Headphones, Hover Camera, TicWatch, WKUP bikes and many, many more. Follow Krish on Twitter or learn more about him on his website.
