The last two years with the rise of the Internet of everything, many car companies and cell phone manufacturers are crossing over each other, for example, Geely holding company has acquired Meizu, and plans to launch Geely cell phone. Today, a blogger broke the news that the founder of Azure, Li Bin, talked about the Azure phone in a live broadcast.
The blogger, @dehalogenlovedriving, said that Li Bin met with users in Fuzhou today, and in an interview with them, Li Bin said that things are moving forward with the Azera phone, but that Azera is certainly no match for the company that now sells 100 million phones. Li Bin said that although it is not difficult to build a phone at the moment, it is still a challenge to build a phone that works well. What Azera wants to do is simple: build a phone that works well for Azera users, and develop a phone just like Apple every year.
In addition, the blogger claimed that Li Bin was not aware of being live at the time, and although Li Bin knew and said he didn’t care, the live streaming party shut down the broadcast.
It is worth mentioning that Li Bin said in March this year that the Azure phone was in the research stage, and also said at that time that “it is easy to make a phone, but it is very challenging to make a good phone”.
Li Bin said in April that the phone is the most important device for Azera users to connect to the vehicle. Since Apple is closed to the automotive industry and does not open interfaces like UWB, it makes Azera very passive. And due to Huawei’s suppression, the market share of iPhone has further increased. To ensure user benefits and experience, Azera will study cell phones and car-centric smart terminal devices well.
