Developed by JD Reading, the JDRead e-reader is equipped with a 6-inch 300ppi e-ink screen and eight built-in reading lights. It weighs in at an ultra-light 155g, with an ergonomic design that can easily be held in one hand. Featuring a Type-C mainstream interface and 8 Gigabytes of storage space, the device can store a full library of e-books—and thanks to JD Reading’s VIP card, readers will have free access to up to 180,000 e-books.  JDRead can also be connected with external speakers via Bluetooth for listening in audio mode while driving or doing other activities.


Also on display was the Hissense A5 mobile phone, a customized reading device co-designed with JD Reading. Equipped with a 5.84-inch HD eye protection ink screen and embedded with the JD Reading App, it utilizes AI to provide a more ideal viewing experience, featuring softer, warmer lighting and secondary diffuse reflection technology.

China’s online literature is developing fast in recent years and as more and more online literatures are translated into English through online content creation platforms, its impact  continues to increase out of China. The conference aims to provide a platform to promote thoughts sharing, literature displaying, policy and information releasing, and trading of production factors.
