Yu Chengdong has made it clear that Huawei will not do home appliances and compete with other home appliance companies. He also said that Huawei will not do traditional TV, but will explore large screens with AI capabilities. With these statements, there have been speculations that Huawei smart TV is coming soon, and it will certainly be different from traditional TV products.
According to the latest reports, Huawei will launch its high-end TVs in September and it will support high-end features such as 8K ultra-clear resolution, wide color gamut, and AI artificial intelligence. The panel may come from Samsung. However, inside information suggests that Huawei smart TV will not be confined to high-end areas. In the low-end market, Huawei is seeking to cooperate with display manufacturers such as BOE and Huaxing Optoelectronics to develop LCD TVs. According to previous reports, Huawei will launch a 55-inch LCD TV in May this year and a 65-inch model in August. However, the progress of Huawei’s LCD TV project is very unclear and should be postponed.
There are also reports that Huawei plans to launch the world’s first 5G TV by the end of this year, and the Huawei smart TV will be equipped with an 8K display. Some analysts believe that the reason why Huawei wants to enter the TV field is to build its own ecosystem around consumer electronics. At present, Huawei is fully promoting the HiLink smart connection ecosystem.
