LAS VEGAS, U.S. -- Chinese consumer electronics makers say they are keen to work with Google, Amazon and other U.S. tech giants on smart homes and connected devices despite ongoing political tensions and American "skepticism."

TCL unveiled plans to create its own smart home hub -- TCL Home -- at the CES electronics trade show in Las Vegas on Monday. The company stressed that it does not view Apple, Google or Amazon as competitors in this field, and said it is in fact working with the latter two to integrate their voice assistants into its TVs.
