Huawei is expected to enter into the Smart TV business with the launch of its new Smart TV during the month of April. This Smart TV from Huawei will further be carried over by BOE, a Chinese display manufacturer.
A new Chinese local media had reported suggesting that Huawei is in plans of launching a 55-inch TV in April this year. It further suggests that the Huawei’s first Smart TV will be reportedly taken over BOE. Furthermore, the report also reveals Huawei doesn’t indeed build a Smart TV but will most likely monitor the Internet (IoT) division of Television business.
Reports of Huawei launching its Smart TVs have been circulating on the web for quite a while now. Adding to that, Huawei might also foray into the budget smart TVs, which Xiaomi has created with Mi TVs. If the rumors are believed to be true, we might see a serious competitor to Mi TVs with presumably Huawei’s sub-branded Honor TVs as well.
Moreover, there have been reports stating another well known Chinese smartphone manufacturer – OnePlus is also gearing up to launch its own Smart TV this year or by 2020, which is expected to be a game changer. Earlier, Pete Lau had already confirmed that India would be one of the countries to receive the OnePlus TV. With all these smartphone manufacturers entering into the highly competitive Smart TV segment, let us wait and look around what would they tend to bring to the table.
