Changhong has released quite a number of devices since their reorganization, most of which were standard 4G smartphones with conventional specifications and features. But the company’s latest phone, the H1, comes with industry-first features that truly set it apart from its competitors.

On the inside, the H1 also seems pretty plain with its MediaTek MT6732 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 5-inch screen, 2-megapixel camera front-facing camera, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 3,000mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat.

But it’s the H1’s special health features that make it stand out against the other smartphones in the market. Among other things, the H1 is able to not only measure and analyze blood sugar and cholesterol levels but it can also send that data to the cloud to be analyzed by a team of doctors and relay corresponding medical advice. The data is also saved online for later viewing and analysis and can be shared within a ‘family circle’. The H1 eliminates the need for users to bring additional instruments for measuring blood sugar and other traits and since the H1 is a smartphone, its specifications make it perform even better than other medical instruments.


The H1 is able to do achieve this using a range of built-in advanced sensors and a high-precision electrochemical chip that have resulted in Changhong and the H1 to be awarded two national medical device licenses. This means that the H1 is not only a smartphone but a certified medical instrument. The Changhong H1 will be available sometime in June and is expected to sell at around 1,299 Yuan.
