According to the Nikkei Asian Review Huawei plans to introduce the world’s first 5G television as early as this year and aims to be a top five PC maker in three years.
The TVs will be equipped with a 5G module as well as a high-end 8K resolution display, sources familiar with the plan told the Nikkei Asian Review. This means they will be able to use the new generation network to download data-heavy content, such as 360 degree videos in which viewers can watch in every direction, and virtual reality programs.
There are questions, however, over how soon the wider ecosystem and technology for such services will be available. As yet here in the UK 5G is just a talking point, with some 5G trials in progress.
Huawei is not a newcomer in the television business. The Chinese company’s chip arm Hisilicon Technologies is the world’s second-largest provider of TV chipsets after Taiwan’s MediaTek, and supplies to various local brands such as Hisense, Skyworth and Changhong, as well as Sharp.
