At today's Huawei Full Connect Conference 2020, Wang Yinfeng, President of Huawei's PC and Tablet Business Unit, confirmed that the company is preparing to launch monitors and consumer desktops. According to him, monitors will enter the market first, and the first PC will be presented before the end of this year.
It is reported that the company will initially release a family of two or three monitors. It will include at least one curved screen model aimed at gamers. Rumor has it that Huawei will try to take a bite out of Xiaomi's pie in this way, from which we can conclude that its devices will be presented in the same budget price range. It is already known that the production of flat-panel monitors will be entrusted to BOEVT, a subsidiary of BOE. The curved monitors will be manufactured by TPV Technology. It is reported that Huawei has already ordered the production of one million screens.
In addition, detailed specifications of Huawei's first consumer PC have been revealed. The device will be based on a proprietary Kunpeng 920 processor, which will be paired with 8GB of DDR4-2666 RAM. An SSD with a capacity of 256 GB will be used as a data storage device. The computer will be equipped with an AMD Radeon R7 430 graphics card. It will receive a 180-watt power supply and will ship with the UOS operating system developed in China.
It is worth noting that Huawei already makes desktop computers, but they only ship to corporate customers.
