On August 6, at Huawei Developer Webinar 2020, Huawei introduced an enhanced live streaming solution for e-commerce platforms and merchants around the world.
Huawei said this new solution is designed to help developers build better solutions for the growing e-commerce industry. As well as enabling retailers to host live streaming experience easier, faster, and more immersive.
Global e-commerce sales have increased from $2.39 trillion in 2018 to $3.46 trillion in 2019, and as more retailers and consumers looking to online streaming to sell and buy products, live e-commerce is expected to continue representing a larger chunk of the retail sector.
Live streaming has a far more successful customer conversion rate compared to traditional e-commerce and is more effective at activating sales and building loyalty.
“The pandemic forces us, as consumers, to change our behaviors due to lockdowns and restrictions. The online demands flourished with a greater variety of products and categories online. Digital has become the core business of every type of industry.” said Dafiti’s Head of Product and Business Intelligence, Roosevelt Nascimento, one of the partners spoke during the event.
How it Works:
This live streaming solution uses Huawei’s device virtualization kit including various camera devices. With one click on the host’s phone, the host can display products from multiple angles and keep their audience fully engaged.
The technology also integrates the Huawei HiAI to enhance the e-commerce live streaming experience by enabling scenario-based sales.
With real-time backdrop processing, digital backdrop replacements are made possible according to different scenarios, providing the audience with natural and intuitive product demonstrations.
With Huawei’s AR capabilities integrated into live streaming, products can now be displayed in an even clearer way: for example, the internal structure of smartphones can be displayed to demonstrate the detailed design and craftsmanship.
On top of that, considering the interruption brought by frame freezing could be really annoying during live streaming, Huawei’s enhanced 5G and Wi-Fi capabilities can reduce latency and increase download speed to ensure a more reliable and faster live streaming experience.
These technologies combine to make e-commerce live streaming more feasible, more advanced, and more professional for everyday users.
The online webinar unveiled the “Pilot Collaboration Program” designed to support developers who are keen to build more advanced live streaming solutions. Huawei will fund five global partners and help them unlock more business opportunities in e-commerce live streaming with the innovative HMS Core.
“The event is the latest part of Huawei’s commitment to creating an ecosystem that enables developers to open new doors, and allows Huawei consumers and AppGallery users to unlock more innovative and unique experiences.” Wrote Huawei.

Over 2 million consumers visited Huawei store on the return of Meng Wanzhou
On September 25, Huawei‘s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Meng Wanzhou finally landed in China. However, there is a report that over 2 million consumers across the country jumped into Huawei’s Tmall store to buy Huawei products to support Huawei.
May consumers left a message to the consumer service at the Huawei store for Meng when placing an order: “Welcome Meng Wanzhoud home, Huawei, come on!” Thereafter, Huawei has been trending on the hot search tab.
Huawei Meng Wanzhou:
Huawei CFO landed in China since her arrest at Vancouver Airport in Canada. A Chinese statement media reported that Meng Wanzhou will have also to take pandemic prevention requirements and participate in a 14+7 day quarantine.
Huawei CFO lands China after 1028 days of detention in Canada
Huawei Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Meng Wanzhou has finally landed in China, carried on a Chinese government-chartered plane at an airport in Shenzhen after 1028 of detention in Canada. A Chinese ambassador and Huawei staff welcome the CFO back to her homeland.
This isn’t a simple welcome, it was made heroic by the Airport’s tower management and announced on the radio a message for Ms. Meng:
“The motherland will always be your strongest support. Ms. Meng Wanzhou welcomes you back!”
This is the first time when Huawei CFO landed in China since her arrest at Vancouver Airport in Canada. A Chinese statement media reported that Meng Wanzhou will have also to take pandemic prevention requirements and participate in a 14+7 day quarantine.
China’s foreign ministry statement:
“Facts have already fully proved that this is an incident of political persecution against Chinese citizens, with the purpose of suppressing China’s high-tech enterprises. The accusation of Ms. Meng Wanzhou’s so-called “fraud” is purely fabricated. The actions of the United States and Canada are typical arbitrary detentions.” said China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying.
The story continues as meng also delivered a returning keynote on her return after a long time to the people. She said the long wait in an overseas country is full of struggle and suffering. On the other hand, now the temperature of her hometown is making her unspeakable.
“Motherland i am back” said Meng
On December 1, 2028, Canadian police detained Huawei CFO while she was transiting at an airport in Vancouver, Canada. Subsequently, the Canadian Ministry of Justice held a press conference to announce the news of Meng Wanzhou’s arrest.
In March 2019, Canada approved Meng Wanzhou’s extradition order to the United States. Since then, Huawei has sued the Canadian government for the arrest of Meng Wanzhou.
On May 27, 2020, the Supreme Court of British Columbia ruled that the Meng Wanzhou case met the double criminality principle of extradition requirements and decided not to release.
On August 18, 2021, the trial of Meng Wanzhou’s extradition case in the British Columbia High Court was all concluded, and the judge did not immediately announce the verdict. The judge decided to hold a meeting on October 21 and agreed to announce the date of the verdict.
On September 25, 2021, after a deal with the U.S. regarding the latest settlement on the case, Meng Wanzhou left Canada on a chartered plane by the Chinese government and reached her homeland.
