1: The ‘1’ represents the smartphone, which is central to the ecosystem, connecting and controlling the wider devices.

8: The ‘8’ is the peripheral connected devices, such as FreeBuds 3, Watch GT 2, Sound X, MatePad Pro, MateBook X Pro and HUAWEI Vision.

N: ‘N’ is the layer where everything comes together, denoting the millions of IOT devices that are effortlessly connected using Huawei HiLink technologies, with the plus symbol representing Huawei Share and HiLink, the technologies that seamlessly connect everything together.

Controlled by the smartphone and connected by EMUI, Huawei’s ecosystem brings together a collection of new technologies that work together to deliver the world’s most exciting new intelligently connected digital experience.

Huawei, a brand which has unrivalled expertise in building networking infrastructure, is also one of two device companies in the industry to have built its own software and hardware ecosystems. These two factors mean that Huawei can bring unique benefits to consumers through distributed technology, which unlocks vital privacy and security benefits in addition to providing a seamless and user-friendly experience with 1+8+N.
