Huawei has taken the crown of the best smartphone camera from Google’s Pixel 3 when it introduced the P30 series in Paris this year. Huawei is looking to further expand its ecosystem of consumer electronics by launching another electronics waiting to be crowned the world’s first – An 8K 5G TV. The Chinese telecom equipment maker will thus challenge Samsung and Apple and might even overthrow them. Huawei stands second when it comes to making phones, in the entire world. However, it will enter a new zone with this upcoming launch as they have never launched a TV before.
A 5G TV can bring up a lot of excitement and thoughts about its power in 2019 (or 2020). It could relatively change our dependence on a cable box or satellite connection, which could become a hub for your devices at home. Apart from this mind-blowing concept, a 5g TV could also offer crazy fast speeds for the ever-increasing VR gaming and while PlayStation is expected to offer 8K content soon, this would be the ultimate equipment you should think of getting.
Not the first
It’s not the first time ‘5G TV’ were uttered together! Foxconn has been planning a “5G+8K” TVs in Wisconsin, since 2017, but there was no further development. Also, the market could open doors for this new hybrid as no TV manufacturers sell a 5G TV. Samsung, LG, Sony, and TCL however, sell 8K TVs.
There’s no word on the cost or whether it could use QLED, LED, or OLED display. What we know is that the US has prohibited Huawei products on the reason that they can be used for spying or how Vodafone claimed that Huawei had some hidden backdoors, further raising the suspicion. Notwithstanding these controversies, Huawei sales have shown that the firm has the potential to be number 1 in the world and this upcoming 5G TV might just roll the dice for that path.
This said TV won’t be Huawei’s first 5G product as it has already announced the Huawei Mate X foldable phone with 5G that consumers can get their hands on this year. What are your opinions on this? Do you think we are ready for an 8K 5G TV? Let us know in the comments section below.
