The TV would reportedly be introduced as soon as this year , according to a piece today from Nikkei. More than one thing is going on with Huawei ’s ambition here. The idea would be to continue building out its line of consumer products Samsung-style, with the later responsible for an ecosystem that

As by Nikkei Asian Review yesterday, Huawei Technologies could be launching the world's first 8K 5G TV, equipped with a 5G module, as early as this year.

On Wednesday, Nikkei Asian Review reported that sources familiar with Huawei's hardware plans had revealed that the company will be allegedly introducing their first television -- which will also be the world's first 8K 5G TV -- later this year.

5G-support will allow the TV to download and display data-heavy content like 360-degree videos and more, as the 5G ecosystem expands. Additionally, the TV would not require conventional cable or satellite broadcast services and could "act as a router hub for all other electronic devices in a home."

First 5G Huawei smartphones due late 2019

First 5G Huawei smartphones due late 2019 The new Huawei P30 and P30 Pro smartphones are not expected to land in 5G versions, according to the firm's CEO, Richard Yu, in an interview reported by MySmartPrice. The brand's first 5G model is likely to be the forthcoming Mate 30, scheduled to be unveiled in fall 2019 -- not to mention the firm's first folding smartphone, the Mate X, due to launch soon in selected markets. While Huawei started the year focusing on camera technology, unveiling its new P30 smartphone series in Paris, the Chinese manufacturer now has another major technology in its sights: 5G.

Huawei has been widely rumoured to be planning a "smart TV " line-up for 2019, but details have been light – and official info non-existent. The UK is still waiting for a proper 5 G roll-out: EE is the only network to confirm launch plans for this year , and they're limited to specific areas across 16 cities.

The new Huawei TV would mark the expansion of the company’s ecosystem play, which has so far centered predominantly on smaller, portable devices, and could launch as soon as this year . Huawei ’s goal, so the Nikkei reports, is to be the first to market with a 5 G TV .

According to the Review, Huawei is aiming to saturate its product offerings and complete its consumer electronics portfolio, in order to compete with technology giants like Samsung and Apple.

The company previously announced one of the first 5G smartphones to hit the market, as well as a handful of 5G routers for the home.

So far, Samsung, too, has announced a 5G handset, but their 8K TV does not support 5G. Other leading television manufacturers like LG Electronics and Sharp displayed their own 8K TVs at this year's Consumer Electronics Show.

While the launch of a 8K 5G TV demonstrated that Huawei is leading the competition, it may be ahead of its time, given that in order to benefit from this technology, "there needs to be an ecosystem for 8K, including cameras, and 8K TV processors, encoders and decoders to broadcast 8K content, which are not yet mature," as tech analyst C.Y. Yao was quoted as saying.

Samsung 8K televisions are priced from $5,000 to $70,000 depending on size.

Huawei's Mate X foldable phone reportedly launching by September.
The Mate X could be out in the next three months.
