Wang Sicong is one of China’s most popular web celebs, famous for his frank words and luxurious lifestyle on SNS. He is the son of Wang Jianlin, a real estate tycoon and China’s richest man. Wang is an avid eSports player and has a collection of top-notch electronics. Here are six gadgets which reflects his taste.
1. Sony super TV KD-100Z9D
The Sony KD-100Z9D television is worth USD 72,477. Its 100-inch screen is the largest television from the Sony brand. In March, Wang posted on Weibo that his long awaited television just arrived and emphasized that this was the first of this television model purchased worldwide.
2. Customised ASUS computer with high-end components.
His ASUS computer was customised and assembled with high-end ASUS ROG mainboard and cherry keyboard worth USD 43,492 in total. Cherry mechanical keyboards are originally from Germany and are very popular among gamers.
3. Sennheiser’s Orpheus headphones
Setting the price as high as USD 71,037 per set, Sennheiser only allocated three headphone sets to be sold in Asia, and Wang bought two sets for himself. The company only produces 250 sets of Orpheus headphones annually, and it is the most expensive headphones in the world.
4. Kingston HyperX Predator USB flash drive
Kingston HyperX Predator, a 1TB USB flash drive, is worth USD 1,450. Its file transfer speed is outstanding. Now, the USB capability is upgraded to 2TB. Guess Wang may have already bought that one.
5. Limited edition Leica M9-P camera
This camera is worth USD 26,825. The limited edition Leica is already hard to purchase. However, the camera which Wang purchased – a product of Leica’s collaboration with Hermes – is even rarer. Well, Wang got it anyway – earlier than Leica’s brick-and-mortar stores.
6. Gift for his dog – 8 iPhone 7s handsets
It is not surprising that Wang buys the newest iPhones, but he did not buy these for himself – it was for his dog Coco. Wang’s infamous purchase made international headlines last year when he bought eight iPhone 7s handsets at the phone’s earlier launch and presented it to his dog. (Yes, even his pet has her own Weibo account)
