Shipments of 8K TVs are estimated to reach 430,000 this year, while in 2020 may surpass 2 million. Therefore, Huawei is eager to enter the television market and with bells on, too. Nikkei Asian Review stated that Huawei’s first set of TVs would have an 8K resolution, as well as 5G support.
In this way, users may have the opportunity to download big amounts of content faster than using a broadband network, without drying up their wired connection.
The 5G-outfitted TV may even surpass the need for a traditional Internet service entirely, if you think about it.
Chances are Huawei already has all the resources available to make it possible since, in the first quarter, the company overtook the giant Apple in terms of unit market share.
In terms of competitors, Huawei would face a harsh player on the market, Samsung, only the biggest TV manufacturer in the world. The company just started selling 8K sets from 65 inches up to 98 inches.
Would you skip a Samsung TV for a Huawei one?
