Huawei to launch 4K tv box on the 16th December


huawei android tv

Huawei have posted teasers that they are ready to launch an Android running TV box with 4K video playback.

Xiaomi have a lot to answer for when it comes to the Chinese phone market, but with their success they have also boosted the sales, and performance of rival companies too. Just a few years ago we cannot imagine being excited about what Huawei are making, but these days there is the Ascend Mate 7 and upcoming 6 Plus to drool over.

Like Xiaomi, Huawei have also diversified their range of products, phones still make up the largest part of their inventory, but they also have wearable products, a smart router and soon a Android powered TV box.

A teaser points at the 16th December being the launch date of the Huawei TV Box. Chances are it will use one of Huawei’s own Hisilicon processors and sources tell us that the device will have support for 4K video and H.265 encoding.

      My guess. A TV box is something like Apple TV, if you know that. You could call it a small computer which connects to the TV, so your TV gets all sorts of extra functions. In this case it runs Android, so you will probably be able to use android apps on your TV, furthermore you it can be hooked up with a external harddrive.

    I’m going to wait until the obox by snail/ireadygo comes out before I splurge for a TV box. 4GB of RAM is enticing 🙂

        Yes but those are not optimized for gaming

          So it is not the 4GB that entices you

            No, It’s the game playing optimization that I would like
