Huawei is a multinational company that has a lot of businesses that are doing quite well globally. Huawei’s smartphone business has been doing very well. However, the series of bans from the U.S. since last year is affecting the company’s smartphone business. With the latest ban that targets its chip supply, the Chinese manufacturer is helpless. The Huawei Mate 40 series might be its last flagship smartphone but Huawei is not giving up entirely. With its smartphone business technically grounded, it is now shifting its attention to other businesses.
According to recent reports, Huawei is preparing to launch its own-brand display products. The company will release curved screen displays for the gaming market. The aim of Huawei is to compete with emerging manufacturers such as Xiaomi. Furthermore, the report claims that Huawei will outsource the production of standard display products (non-curved) to BOEVT. This company is an ODM (Original Design Manufacturer) subsidiary of BOE Technology Group. The first batch of its displays for Huawei will include 2~3 monitors.
In addition, the company will subcontract the manufacturing task of curved screen monitors for the gaming market to TPV Technology. The initial order is about 1 million units, and the screen size includes the current mainstream 27-inch and 34 inches. Analysts believe that Huawei’s ambitious entry into the display market is also in line with increasing market speculation that Huawei is also preparing to enter the desktop PC market.
According to previous reports, Huawei’s first desktop model will be “Qingyun W510” which will use HiSilicon’s 7nm Kunpeng 920 3211K processor. This PC will UOS system. This is developed by a group that includes China Electronics Group and Wuhan ShenZhiDuo Technology Co. The Chinese operating system is a joint effort of many companies in the industry.
Huawei will also enter the Desktop PC market
In addition, Huawei’s desktop PC renderings have also appeared on Huawei’s official developer website. The renders of the PC are basically consistent with media reports. Furthermore, there are reports that Huawei desktop PC will be manufactured by Foxconn Electronics’ subsidiary “Hongfujin Precision Industry (Wuhan) Company”. Analysts predict that Huawei desktop PCs will be first supplied to important user groups such as enterprises. These devices should arrive later this year.
Will the Chinese manufacturer able to use the display or PC market to make up for its diminishing smartphone business? Only time will tell if the company will excel in these fields.
