According to a report by Future Auto Daily today, multiple independent sources said that Yi Wei, the former senior vice president of Meitu Mobile, has joined the NIO mobile phone team as the head of the software department. And some sources said that Yi Wei's specific rank cannot be seen in Wei at present, only the code name.
In addition, a source said: "The Weilai mobile phone team has more than 300 people, and the background of employees includes OPPO, Meitu and Huawei." The recruitment website shows that Weilai is recruiting a large number of personnel related to the mobile phone business, including Android engineers and smart watch product managers. The source said that most of the salaries offered by NIO to the mobile phone team were 10-20% higher than their original wages.
Regarding the size and recruitment of Weilai's mobile phone team, Weilai responded that it does not comment on personnel information.
In addition, the blogger @陈粉 said that the battery is not fat and broke the news at the end of last month. Li Bin revealed during the live broadcast in Changzhou that Weilai will only make one flagship mobile phone a year. The first mobile phone of Weilai will be designed with a straight screen and equipped with a flagship chip. Two months later than the chip's first launch. And the phone will be the best mobile phone for NIO, and it will have the same color scheme as NIO. At the same time, Li Bin said that the price of the phone is cheaper than that of Apple, and it is expected to be available in one year (the original words are that if you use Android this year, you can not change the phone first), and the purchase method will be more distinctive.
It is understood that Li Bin, the founder of Weilai, was exposed to talking about Weilai mobile phones in a live broadcast on July 28. Li Bin said that the NIO mobile phone business is progressing. NIO will only develop one phone a year, just like Apple.
In addition, Li Bin said in April this year that mobile phones are the most important device for NIO users to connect to vehicles. Because Apple is very closed to the automotive industry and does not open interfaces such as UWB, Weilai is very passive. And due to the suppression of Huawei, the iPhone's market share has further increased. In order to ensure the interests and experience of users, NIO will study mobile phones and car-centric smart terminal devices.
