Huawei is rumored to release its first TV this year. Most recently, the outlet Nikkei Asian Review has reported that this product could have an 8K resolution when it comes out. It also alleges that the same device will have its own 5G connectivity.

Huawei is linked to the release of its own TV this year - in fact, the most recent rumors have suggested that it should have been launched already. However, its continued absence has allowed for the generation of new leaks surrounding the purported "Huawei AI Window".

The latest report on the subject of rather larger displays from this OEM asserts that it will have an ultra-high resolution. Some readers may have also been surprised to read that this TV will also apparently be able to support 5G by itself.

This may seem a strange choice for such a product category. However, it may make sense in some ways: 5G could one day deliver the same volumes of data physical cables are used for now. Furthermore, its potentially improved bandwidth may be necessary to drive a full 8K stream.

Besides these arguments, there is evidence that an increasing number of consumers expect their living-room tech to be as 'smart' as possible: a 5G Huawei TV could act as a central hub to support these demands.
