According to Nikkei Asian Review, Huawei is now entering into the TV business. As it is now working to launch the world’s first 5G-connected TV this year. These TVs will come with 5G modules. Huawei has already produced 5G modules for the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G and the foldable Mate X 5G.
Huawei to Launch a 5G-Connected 8K TV
It has been reported that TV would also have an 8K panel with the current high-resolution standard of 4K. In combination with a 5G modem, this TV could download entire movies and TV shows over the connection.
With 5G it could replace a hard-wired home broadband connection and could act as a home router for 5G. However, Huawei needs to compete with Samsung in the television department, as Samsung is actually manufacturing 8K displays.
It seems that Huawei is expanding its business. It has expertise in building telecommunications networks, providing operational and consulting services and equipment to enterprises inside and outside of China, and manufacturing communications devices for the consumer market. Huawei had over 170,000 employees as of September 2017, around 76,000 of them engaged in Research & Development (R&D). Furthermore, It has 21 R&D institutes around the world. As of 2017, the company invested US$13.8 billion in R&D.
