We’re less than a month away until CES 2017 begins, and there’s been plenty of news surrounding the technology trade show so far. As always, tons of big names from some of the world’s largest companies will be there, showing off their latest and greatest products for the world to see. If you’ve been wondering who to watch out for this year, you’re going to want to give your attention to the up-and-coming Chinese smartphone company, Huawei.

Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, will give a keynote speech at CES 2017. While we’ve known about Yu’s upcoming speech for a few weeks now, the company has just sent out official invitations to the keynote.

Here’s a brief excerpt on what we can expect from Richard Yu’s speech:

During his address, Yu will showcase Huawei’s vision for a more global model of innovation, which taps into the strengths of each country and region and encourages collaboration with the adoption of the latest technologies and techniques. Through his keynote, attendees will learn about Huawei’s plans for the future of mobile – one that integrates the latest in artificial intelligence, virtual reality and connected technologies and pairs them with elite global partnerships and sustainable product development.

What can we expect from Huawei at CES this year? Unlike years past, Huawei has been remaining pretty quiet about its CES plans this time around. The MediaPad M3 has already been released, and the company recently took the wraps off the Mate 9 and Porsche Design Mate 9. And despite the Huawei Watch’s debut almost two years ago, there have been no rumors about a Huawei Watch 2.

We’re certainly excited to see what the company has in store for us this year. Huawei’s plans for the future of mobile has changed quite a bit over the past years, and it’ll be interesting to see how the company plans on incorporating artificial intelligence and virtual reality into its product lineup.

Android Authority will of course be on the floor at CES 2017, bringing you coverage on all the latest and greatest devices. The trade show officially takes place January 5-8 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Be sure to keep up with our CES 2017 hub page for updates!
