Luo Yonghao, CEO of Beijing-based handset and mobile OS developer Chuizi Technology (Smartisan), recently said at the GeekPark Rebuild 2017 conference held in Beijing that Chuizi has completed RMB 1 bln new funding.
Luo also announced a new research and development program, and said that in the future the company will support a team of approximately 120 development personnel to create a "revolutionary" new system. The new system will incorporate artificial intelligence technology and will disrupt the "mouse and keyboard" interface paradigm to increase work efficiency by up to 200%. Luo said that the system will most likely be released next spring or by summer 2018 at the latest.
Luo said that starting next year, Chuizi will adopt an operating model similar to other global handset manufacturers, and will release approximately 5-6 new products per year at high-end, mid-range, and low-end price points.
